IU Cinema

In 2010, Jon Vickers was named the first director of the Indiana University Cinema, a bold initiative to build a world-class film screening program at the university. The hiring, much like the renovation of their 1930s theater into a THX-certified modern venue, was a noted combination of reverence for cinematic history and foresight into its future.

In this interview, we sit down with Vickers to take a verbal tour of the new theater, to discuss the challenges of programming in an age between film and digital, to figure out how to entice Werner Herzog to your cinema, and to share a personal love of movies.

Of course, there’s also the big question: how can an art house scene thrive in a city of only 80,000?
