Retro Favorites


Each week we program a new selection of the best movies you grew up on … and can’t see anywhere else. Come relive the glory through one of these film series, paired with one of 20 craft and micro brews.

Universal Monsters

Introducing, for the first time ever, the original monsters risen to the silver screen. All January long on 35mm film and The Lagoon in 3D.

A creature feature every day at 2 and 7.


Summer of Bond

Gateway Film Center has created another one-of-a-kind maverick movie experience: For the very first time anywhere, GFC will present all 26 theatrical Bond films – including the two non-canon, non-Eon Productions films – chronologically, in one sexy series.

And even more extraordinary, every film will be played in restored 4K.

Join GFC for the complete theatrical Bond collection, presented in its most pristine format ever. It’s a double-oh summer of cloak and dagger intrigue, impossible action, hot cars and even hotter beautiful people … and of course, martinis shaken, not stirred. Summer of Bond, July 1 to Sept. 10 – only at GFC.

GFC’s Summer of Bond is made possible in partnership with Svedka Imported Vodka.

Cult 101

Introducing our most ambitious program yet: a yearlong series of the best ignored-then-adored films of all time we’re calling Cult 101.

With the help of a panel of film experts from around the country, the film center has identified the best cult films of all time – and will play every one of them over the course of 2017.

Screening times will be revealed each month. Special screenings – 4k restorations, 35mm and 70mm presentations, panel discussions and more – are planned, and will be announced on a monthly schedule.


Holiday Classics

A Columbus tradition returns to the best holiday theater in the city!

The holiday films that define the season, whether you’ve been naughty or nice. Retro thrills versus the iconic classics, and add a dash of chills with Holiday Nightmares. Pick your list, or check it twice and watch them all!
