The main mission of midtown cinema is to bring independent films to Harrisburg.
Down in Front!
Down in Front! is a monthly screening of the best worst movies with MST3K style riffing. Every month our 3 favorite down in fronters, Jennie Adams, Matthew Golden and Stuart Landon with a special guest, rip apart some of the worst films in history.
Bring a Zerøday beverage and help us make fun of these terrible movies every second Friday at 9:30ish.
Check our special events page for upcoming Down in Front! movies.
#BTB Bring the Baby
Movies for parents in an environment suitable for babies (note: not family-friendly movies)
Every Sunday, come in to see screenings of current films with special accommodations made for babies!
Midtown Cinema is now offering a special Sunday matinee screening of a first-run movie every week.
Parents and babies are invited to attend! Lights are kept on to facilitate feedings and infant care during the show, and the volume is lowered to prevent over-stimulation or startling of babies. Nursing and bottle feeding during the movie are welcome. A table is provided for diaper changes. Free parking is available in the adjacent lot and on the street. Best part? Crying and cooing will only land you sympathetic — rather than annoyed — looks from other parent patrons.
$8.50 for parents, and babies are free!
Third in the Burg $3 movie
Every month on the 3rd Friday many Harrisburg businesses offer deals. We do too! We feature a favorite film from the past for only $3!
Check our special events page for upcoming movies.
Free Outdoor Films
Every summer we host a series of family-friendly movies with Friends of Midtown right outside in our parking lot. Bring your own lawn chair, get a Zerøday crowler and enjoy a great film on a cool summer night!
Check our special events page for the outdoor film series.
Calling all theatre lovers. Join Midtown Cinema as we present the best of recorded theatre productions from around the world. Featuring distributors like National Theatre Live, among others, this series presents recordings of classic and contemporary plays and musicals.

The Edward S. Finkelstein Harrisburg Jewish Film Festival
The Edward S. Finkelstein Harrisburg Jewish Film Festival is an independent program under the auspices of the Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg.
Currently celebrating its 25th season, the Festival is supported by the Jewish Community Foundation of Central PA’s Harrisburg Jewish Film Festival Fund. The Jewish Community Foundation supports and secures all of our synagogues, agencies, and the programs and activities of the Harrisburg Jewish community.
Our mission is to enrich the cultural life of the Greater Harrisburg area by presenting films that reflect contemporary and historical Jewish and Israeli experiences. The Film Festival aims to encourage Jewish and Israeli artistic expression; to foster dialogue, debate and education; and to nurture creativity in the arts through films that represent a broad spectrum of thought and opinion.
