What we're about

The films are shown in the Nordic Hall at the Scandinavian Living Center in Newton, MA. Admission, refreshments, and parking are free, although donations are welcome. All films are shown in their original language, with English subtitles.

We show one film a month, on a Saturday. Shows start at 1:30 pm, with refreshments served at 1 pm. Lunch (not included) is available in the Center's cafe, the Kaffestuga, which is open until 3 pm. The Center is handicapped accessible.
