Welcome to the Kalamazoo Film Society

Dear Dedicated KFS Film Fan,

We are channeling our inner Kool And The Gang as we write to inform you that we’ve found a new screening venue for KFS films and invite you to join us in, and at, the celebration. Beginning next month, we’ll be showing KFS selected film titles at Celebration Cinema Crossroads, located behind the Crossroads Mall in Portage.

Complete details of the new ticketing process will accompany the announcement of our next film selection. But for now, we want to make sure you keep your current, 2017 KFS membership cards. Best of all, we’re pleased to announce that card-carrying KFS members attending KFS film selections at Celebration will still be receiving a substantially discounted admission price. It is proof positive that your cinematic passions have a unique and meritorious value.

When Kalamazoo’s only film arthouse closed its doors in the late 80’s and inspired local film fans to passionately band together to create the KFS, our mission has been sharply focused on one primary goal – to put great, world-class films on the big screen for the entire community to see. We’ve screened in several different venues over the past three decades, and the one factor that each site has shared is the passion and support of our members. Your commitment to the KFS mission and your zeal for seeing creative and challenging films on the big screen has been the driving force which has kept the KFS alive, regardless of the venue. That very same member commitment has earned us a reputation in the community, as well as in many booking departments across the nation, and is a large part of the reason why we continue to thrive. So when the lights go down at your house tonight, please take a moment to give yourself a well-deserved round of applause.

We look forward to working with the inspired staff at Celebration, and they are keen to help us continue our mission. Plans are underway for expanding our relationship in the coming months, in support of your support.

Thank you for making it all possible.

Jubilantly yours,
