After over three years at its current Main Street location, The Mini Microcinema announced earlier this fall that it would be closing at the end of December.

An experimental, independent and local film hub, it has given a space for filmmakers — especially in the local scene — working outside of the mainstream to share their work. Celebrate that work with The Mini family on Thursday, Dec. 19 at the nonprofit’s closing party celebration.

Though its future schedule is uncertain, founder C. Jacqueline Wood hopes that, even without a physical home, the organization will be able to host pop-up events and screenings.

“At the end of December, we will have held more than 391 screenings in our 4+ year history,” reads a release. “Pretty good for a scrappy volunteer-run organization!” Cheers to The Mini Microcinema; you’ve served Cincy well.

7-10 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 19. Free. The Mini Microcinema, 1329 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, mini-cinema.org.
