Harkening back to the programming ethos that guided the Oriental Theatre in the '70s and '80s when it operated as a true "calendar house," Craft Cinema is Milwaukee Film’s effort to showcase a variety of limited-run and unique film experiences on our big screens that reflect the variety and breadth of filmmaking, both today and throughout cinema history.

From beloved classics and mini-festivals to local offerings, cult curiosities, and everything in between, Craft Cinema is on tap and served to you by Milwaukee Film.




The Oriental Theatre is celebrating the storied career of Stanley Kubrick throughout 2018! Presented in 35mm (and one very special 70mm screening) whenever possible, these are essential viewing for serious cinephiles.
