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.


Kan-Kan Outdoors is back this spring at The Play Ground at IndyFringe! Grab some popcorn, a drink or 2, and relax in the great outdoors to welcome the much needed change in weather with a movie Wednesdays starting April 21.

Special Month of May Screening
Wednesday, May 26 at 8:30 PM ET


Director Danny Madden takes his award-winning short film Krista and impressively transforms it into an unsettling feature exploration of adolescence, performance, and identity. Brimming with energy and style, Beast Beast captures what it means to come of age in an era marked by technology and social media, where violent clashes awaken dormant passions and teenagers are faced with growing up all too quickly.

This year ShortsTV is offering all three Oscar® Nominated Short Film categories, Live Action, Animation, and Documentary, virtually. The programs feature all five of their nominated shorts, plus the animated program features a selection of additional short films from the shortlist.

Purchase the categories individually or all three at a discount.

Made in a unique collaboration with filmmaker and journalist Davy Rothbart, the film spans two decades and focuses on four generations of the Sanford Family, including Emmanuel, a promising student, his brother Smurf, a local drug dealer, his sister Denice, an aspiring cop, and his mother Cheryl, who must conquer her own demons for her family to prosper.
