Nur Box Theatre

The Nur Box Theatre is a free and publicly accessible modular screening venue. Nur Box’s sole purpose is to provide Calgarians access and opportunity to view locally and internationally produced independent works of film, video, and media art, which might otherwise be inaccessible to the general public. Nur Box Theatre’s are positioned in public and private spaces all across the city waiting to be explored. The programming is dynamic and sometimes challenging but family friendly and always rewarding. Nur Box Theatre is curated every month by local filmmakers, non-profit arts, film, and media organizations, and a variety of festival and guest curators.

Original music by Six Degrees Music and Sound, featuring Chris Vail with Andrea Wettstein and Alec Harrison.
