About us

The Luminal Theater provides fully-curated cinema screening services to the international film community with an emphasis on exhibiting cinema of the African diaspora (African-American, African, Caribbean, Afro-European, etc).  Centered in Brooklyn, NY, their primary mission is to make these films accessible beyond film festivals and web-based services as cinema is best utilized as a shared audience experience. From July to September 2015, The Luminal operated out of a pop-up space in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, providing daily screenings of independent films and media such as Darius Clark Monroe’s award-winning “Evolution of a Criminal,” multimedia artist Shani Peters’ “Re:Program,” and the film classic “Black Orpheus,” to name a few of many exceptional and atypical film fare exhibited.  The search for a permanent Bedford-Stuyvesant based home for the theater is currently underway.
