neighborhood, the Times Cinema has been an important part of the
community since 1935. Owner Lee Barczak reopened the theater on
Dec. 26, 2012, and has since fostered its growth, screening new
releases, classics and the occasional cult film.
thrilled that we can partner with the Milwaukee Film Festival and
bring the wonderful films that Milwaukee enjoys to the west side
neighborhood of Washington Heights. It has always been my dream to
be a part of this and expand the opportunities for the festival
and all of us who love movies,”
Barczak said in a release.
Additionally, Milwaukee Film’s
campaign artwork was created by Cathy Brautigam of Lone Shoe
Graphics and Milwaukee-based freelance photographer Kat Schleicher.
The 2014 festival campaign art is featured on the
newly designed Milwaukee Film website, which launched July 14. It
