In addition to a hit parade of regularly-scheduled films, we hold special series and screenings every month of the year. These series often present sharp educational elements through documentaries, talkbacks with filmmakers and stars, café meet and greets, or all of the above. These series help us include members of the community who might otherwise miss out.
The MVP Health Care Little Buddies Series is a family-friendly film series at The Little Theatre.
The Little is located at 240 East Ave. For more information on this series, call the business office at (585) 258-0400.

The Little was born in the jazz age, so when the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival rolls around, we like to whoop it up! Thanks to Freed Maxick, Theater 1 is an official venue for the festival this year and of course we will be hosting free performances in our café, along with hot food and cold drinks.
