Meet the grantees: 3 SoS theaters featured on "Art-house America"

The Criterion Channel spotlights Science on Screen grantees who bring art house film and much more to their communties.

Gold Town Theater owner Collette Costa channels Steve Zissou at her Science on Screen screening of "The Abyss," which she called "one of the five coolest things we've done."

On May 7, 2019, Nashville's Belcourt Theatre was featured on the Criterion Channel's Art-House America—the third Science on Screen grantee theater to be profiled by the independent-theater-celebrating program to date. Missoula, Montana's Roxy Theater, got the Art-house America treatment in October 2018, and the Gold Town Theater of Juneau, Alaska, was featured in August 2017 (with a shout-out to Science on Screen).
