Civic Theatre has served as the Lehigh Valley’s leading provider of independent and foreign film venue for more than 20 years.

Civic strives to present the best selection of art, independent and documentary films. These non-commercial films explore new artistic territory outside of the classic Hollywood narrative, and engage viewers in the understanding of societal issues, the personal struggles of ordinary people, and other subjects that offer insight into the human experience.  More than 30 to 40 films draw nearly 25,000 individuals each year.  Approximately 450 screenings are scheduled annually.
