Bright Bulb Screening Series (formerly Andrew's Video Vault)

Every second Thursday of the month, filmmakers, educators, activists, and cinephiles screen a wide variety of film, from cult classics to avant garde to silent films with live scores provided by local musicians, to horror, suspense, comedy, musical, opera on film, activist docs, and much more. Each month's event features a single screening, double header, or triple header. Admission is FREE and films are continuous from 8pm. Founded by Dr. Andrew Repasky McElhinney in 2004 and now run by Dan Buskirk, this series is one of the longest-running at The Rotunda! 

This program is made possible through the generous support of the Cinema Studies Program at the University of Pennsylvania (
