SHORT FILMS. BIG SCREEN.
We are sad to announce that the November 2020 Colossal Cinematic Showcase has been postponed indefinitely. Our decision is based in part on the Country Club Reel Theater closing because of economic and health considerations of the coronavirus pandemic.
We are aware that some theaters remain open and we could choose to rent one of them to continue the CCS but that doesn't seem right. Country Club Reel has been our home for many years, their employees are our friends and the theater has been solidly supportive of our local film community through those years.
In their generosity, the Reel Theater management has offered to reopen just for us for a few hours on a Sunday in November but even that doesn't feel right. There's still a deadly virus out there. Incidences of new cases and death are still very high in Ada County. There are many in our film community who are at high risk because of age or pre-existing conditions and while we all make our movies as a way to express our lives watching those movies play on the Big Screen should not involve a risk of death.
We'll be back when it's safe to gather together in front of the Big Screen. Until then take care, stay socially distanced, wear a mask, and vote as if your life depended on it.

COLOSSAL CINEMATIC SHOWCASE was born from a belief that movie makers should have an opportunity to show their movies on the big screen to their friends, family, cast members, and crew. So that's what Melina and Larry are about. If you would like to get involved with the Colossal Cinematic Showcase, or have questions, please contact us.
