The UWM Union Cinema has been a hidden-not-really-hidden gem of Milwaukee’s East Side since 1972. Located inside the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Student Union, the unassuming theater has long served as a terrific resource for students and non-students alike, offering impeccably programmed lineups of independent films, Hollywood blockbusters, and fests like the annual Festival of Films in French. And if the Cinema’s recently released winter 2020 lineup is any indication, that tradition is set to continue.

Check out the titles coming this January and February below. The vast majority of the screenings are free for UWM students and Union Cinema members, and only $5 for the general public. A few are free for everyone! Also: Wild At Heart in 35mm!
