The Harrison Center has expanded the number of curated short films available for free public viewing at the Polk Drive-In Theater. The drive-in experience, which originally debuted in February 2020, now includes six films with a showtime just under 30 minutes. The films run on a continuous loop and are projected in partnership with BlackInk IT on the side of the Polk Stables Building daily from 6:30 p.m. to Midnight. The exhibit, which follows social distancing guidelines, honors and represents the stories of the Martindale-Brightwood neighborhood and its residents and are accessible for viewing in the Provider Coffee parking lot where 16th Street meets the Monon.
In addition, viewers are invited to tune their radio to 88.1 FM to listen to the accompanying audio while safely seated in their cars. Audio includes original, place-based songs by resident musicians at the Harrison Center.
