Big Arts TheaterBIG ARTS Monday Night Film Series Features Independent and Foreign Films

Going to the movies may not normally be high on the agenda for vacationers, but the opportunity to see newly released independent and foreign films every week from October through April right here on Sanibel draws plenty of visitors and a loyal following of island residents to the BIG ARTS Monday Night Film Series at Schein Hall.

All films begin at 7:00 pm and tickets can be purchased on the Big Arts website. Two award-winning November films are The Innocents and Theeb.
