Indie films get Goshen showcase

GOSHEN — Welcome to a work in progress.

Those were the words Ellyn Church spoke to a few guests as they stepped into the Goshen Art House Friday evening.

Angel Reyes of Goshen looked around the Art House with red theater seats waiting to be set in place as well as framing for the film screen. He saw the paint can and painting supplies that Church was using during the soft opening of the new venue at 211 S. Main St. in downtown Goshen.

The Art House is on the second floor above Back Alley Brewery and has a new digital movie projector with Surround Sound for the community to watch independent films, Church said.

Reyes was looking forward to the opportunity to view some of the upcoming films at the Art House.

“This is really awesome. We have an amazing, invigorating and fun place to see the arts,” Reyes said. “It’s really exciting to see arts expanding more and more in Goshen with these choice of films. Some of those films challenge humanity and it’s a great way to support these artists. It’s great.”

Church and other volunteers have been working together in preparation for the new cinema with plans to show two movies per weekend that will run for two weekends on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

“A lot of people don’t know what independent films mean and this is an opportunity to see them in Goshen. If we get 125 people a week to see movies, it will work and that is our focus for the first part of the year,” Church said. “We’re really excited that this (Art House) is what a lot of Goshen (people) has been waiting to have for a long time.”

The soft open house was a way for the community to see the spaces and “what we are doing. We are volunteer-based and we’re trying to make it comfortable,” Church said. “We want people to have an amazing experience. There are sound curtains to help make it be a great experience so people want to come back.”
