Films at Theatrikos are made possible with a new professional sound system that was installed in January and a new industry standard projector and screen that are being installed later this month. The new sound system was made possible an anonymous Theatrikos donor and by Theatrikos patrons. The new projector and screen are made possible by Creative Flagstaff and installed by Sedona International Film Festival.

As part of this new film series, Theatrikos has hired a new films coordinator, Rob Henderson. He’s been a volunteer at Sundance Film Festival, Sante Fe International Film Festival and currently serves on the board of directors of Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival.

Chris Gunn is best known for his humorous and historical documentary ‘Changing Gears: Flagstaff and the Mountain Bike’ which premiered at the Orpheum theater to a sold out crowd. Bob Reynolds is an award winning filmmaker and director of Sedona International Film Festival’s screenplay competition.
