The Athenaeum Foundation, Downton Indy, Inc. and Indy Film Fest have partnered again for the Festive Film series. Throughout December, the organizations will bring four holiday classics to the big screen.

“Celebration of the Christmas holiday is VERY big here at the Athenaeum, and we are super excited to extend this series by adding an additional show to this holiday film line up,” said Athenaeum president Craig Mince. “Our hope is that people experience this new holiday tradition with their families, friends and fellow movie lovers.”

Indianapolis residents, visitors and guests can purchase tickets to each film for $10. All proceeds will benefit Downtown Indy’s Beautification Fund and the preservation of the historic Athenaeum building.

“We are thrilled to include Festive Films again as part of our ‘Bright Lights-Holiday Sights’ campaign for the season,” said Bob Schultz, senior vice president of marketing, communications and events for Downtown Indy, Inc. “Partnering with the historic Athenaeum Foundation and the Indy Film Fest provides the outstanding place and expertise to offer these holiday classics to all who love Downtown Indianapolis during the holidays.”
