Our 2019 Winter Film Series

The start of a new year brings along exciting things — resolutions to conquer, a fresh start with a new semester, awesome sales at your favorite stores — but (in our biased opinion), the best thing to come out of 2019 yet is our Winter Film Series, opening at the Knickerbocker Theatre on Monday, Jan.
