While Kan-Kan Cinema & Brasserie’s opening is postponed due to the global pandemic, we have partnered with distributors to launch Kan-Kan On-Demand! We are excited to bring great indie films to the safety of your own home.

Each week we’ll offer a variety of free and paid content, both feature-length and short films. Films can be streamed on most devices. Information for Chromecast, Apple TV, Smart TV and Roku streaming is provided on the Purchase page for each film.

50% of the proceeds of purchased tickets (unless stated otherwise) will go to Kan-Kan and Indianapolis Film Project to support our non-profit organization during these trying times.

To learn more about our weekly viewing party and live discussion event, check out: #AtHomeCinema.
