Two filmmaking events are coming to The Buskirk-Chumley Theater in Bloomington this October, and the registration deadline for both is next week. The first, called Bloomington Cycles, will feature a screening of the 1979 film Breaking Away. Executive Director Danielle McClelland explains the rest.
Five days later The Buskirk will host The 2nd Annual Mix-Off: Bloomington’s Ultimate Bartender Showdown. McClelland details the unique competition.
The director says both events aim to raise awareness for their BCT Movie Partner Project, which allows rent-free use of the theater space on Saturday afternoons and evenings for film screenings. She says the project is important in keeping film programming a major part of the theater’s role in town.
Bloomington Cycles is scheduled to screen on October 5th, and The Mix-Off on October 10th. The registration deadline for both is next Wednesday, April 30th.
