Indie Memphis Nights: February 2018 Film Schedule
This year, Indie Memphis film nonprofit will screen more than 100 different movies in Memphis. It’s called Indie Nights, it’s affordable (some are even pay-what-you-can!) We still have a few left in January, but here’s the schedule for February:
Most of the movies are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and are split between several venues. Most of the movies are $10+ fees and you can buy tickets at IndieMemphis.com. Some of the screenings are PWYC. Indie Memphis is also partnering with Black Lodge Video and arts group The CLTV to help host the films series.
