After last year's success, Urban Cinematheque is back at the Everson Museum on September 4!

Explore the downtown arts and culture scene in Syracuse with a free screening of post-apocalyptic blockbuster, "Mad Max: Fury Road"! Urban Video Project will present the movie outdoors as a massive projection onto the facade of the Everson Museum of Art, a national architectural landmark. This is a spectacle not-to-be-missed!

Over 30 local arts and cultural organizations will be on hand with interactive activities and information about upcoming events, exhibitions, and opportunities to get involved.

Syracuse food trucks will be on site, and free popcorn and lemonade will be available!

Audience members who are able to do so are advised to bring blankets or portable chairs. Limited seating will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Charter buses will run continuously between the Schine Student Center (University Place entrance) on the Syracuse University Campus every 15 minutes from 7-10:30 p.m. The Everson can also be accessed for free via the Connective Corridor bus line.

Street parking and spaces in paid parking lots is ample in the immediate vicinity.

 In the event of inclement weather, the movie screening and all associated activities will be moved inside the Everson Museum of Art.

Urban Cinematheque 2015 is presented in partnership with the Everson Museum of Art, The Oncenter, Onondaga County Office of the County Executive and the Connective Corridor. Urban Cinematheque 2015 is made possible through the generous support of Syracuse Cooperative Federal Credit Union, Central New York Community Foundation, and Wegmans; with additional support from Syracuse New Times, Visual Technologies and The OnCenter.
