We’ve been a few times and love it!! The films vary from artsy to current movies. The Center is very well laid out and students serve as users. Worth the trip.

I've been a member of Jacob Burns for the past 10 years. I get the most out of my membership as I see films not widely released, many Q/A sessions with actors, writers, directors and producers. They screen fabulous films and their programs are wonderful.
