Originally founded in 2012, at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA), Open Projector Night provides the accessible opportunity for local and regional filmmakers to share their work on the big screen and connect with others. After a two-year hiatus, both UICA & GRCMC are excited to announce OPN's new home: Wealthy Theatre. For more information about OPN, visit:
