More About The Tallgrass Film Center:

  • Anyone is welcome to attend a film.
  • They provide a full-servie concession stand with popcorn, candy, beer, hard seltzers, Pepsi soft drinks, and water.
  • The Theater has 30 seats, 2K digital projection, and 5.1 digital sound.
  • Where to park: The LUX, located in Downtown Wichita at 1st St. and Market (1st St. is a one-way street heading East, and Market is a one-way street heading North) has a variety of parking available. There is street parking available on both 1st St. and Market; street parking is free on weekends and after 5 pm on weekdays. Otherwise, it is free within 2 hours or 1-hour limits or metered depending on the spot (between 8a-5p Mon-Fri). There are also a couple of nearby parking lots that are okay to park in on weekends and evenings after 5pm.
  • They recommend arriving at least 15 minutes prior to a film’s start time so you have time to get your ticket, purchase concessions, find a seat, get comfy, and turn off your phone. We don’t have 30 minutes of trailers like at a larger theater.
