Miami Beach Cinematheque

In partnership with Tigertail, which has launched its latest series, Fire, MBCinema will host a presentation of everyone’s favorite film based on a TV series. That’s right, it’s a showing of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me April 6, in anticipation of the new season coming to Showtime in May. The theater is also participating in a nationwide event April 4, when art houses will screen the film 1984 in protest of Donald Trump and his proposed funding cuts for cultural institutions. (See below for other Miami theaters involved in the protest.)

Bill Cosford Cinema

With the popularity of Beyoncé’s Lemonade came the resurgence of a classic piece of American cinema: Julie Dash’s Daughters of the Dust, the cult classic that inspired Bey's masterpiece. Its new restoration finally hits Miami this month, with screenings April 7 through 12. The last screening will feature a panel with guests discussing the feature in-depth. Also, showings of Back to the Future, hosted by the cinematic Arts Commission, will be free April 12 and 15.
