Escaping through a creative portal into another place and time: that’s the magic of movies, playing once more at Bantam Cinema, a historic landmark evolving as a creative sanctuary, educational institution, and community cornerstone.

“Step into our story” is the motto of Connecticut’s longest-operating movie theater, and what a story it is.

The wonderful Alex Katz Women at Craven Contemporary brings together a dozen female portraits by the 95 year old artist spanning from the 1970s to the current day. The show coincides with Katz’s major retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum in New York but you can save a trip to the city and see the artist’s work in Kent instead. Make your plan to visit now before the show closes in mid-February. Craven Contemporary @cravencontemporary 4 Fulling Lane Kent CT 06757.
