While our opening is postponed due to the global pandemic, we’ve partnered with distributors to launch Kan-Kan On-Demand! We are excited to bring you great indie films to stream from the safety of your own home.

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

Unless otherwise stated, 50% of the proceeds from purchased tickets go to supporting the Kan-Kan and the Indianapolis Film Project (IFP), our non-profit engine powering the Cinema.

A month after receiving a fatal diagnosis in January 2015, Oliver Sacks sat down for a series of filmed interviews in his apartment in New York City. For eighty hours, surrounded by family, friends, and notebooks from six decades of thinking and writing about the brain, he talked about his life and work, his abiding sense of wonder at the natural world, and the place of human beings within it. Drawing on these deeply personal reflections, as well as nearly two dozen interviews with close friends, family members, colleagues and patients, and archival material from every point in his life, this film is the story of a beloved doctor and writer who redefined our understanding of the brain and mind.


An intimate portrait of an unlikely rock star: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. This Oscar®-nominated and Emmy®-winning documentary, directed by award-winning filmmakers Betsy West and Julie Cohen, chronicles the inspiring and personal story of Ginsburg’s rise to the nation’s highest court while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon who forever changed the world for women.

*In tribute to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life and unparalleled legacy upholding justice, all of Magnolia’s proceeds from this purchase will be donated to the ACLU Women’s Rights Project, which Justice Ginsburg co-founded in 1972.

Every day is a good day to enjoy Black cinema, and today (yes, right now!) is an especially good one as many distributors have made key films from the Black canon available for free in support of the ongoing and historic protests opposing police violence against the Black community.
