Ways to get involved:

As a 501(c)3, we need sponsorship support to keep our costs low and provide education and filmmaker support programs. Anything from a film sponsor to a year round supporter can help make a difference!

Members are the lifeblood of Tallgrass with support of our organization year round which gives you perks like exclusive first looks at films, free Tallpasses and discounts.

Facility Accessibility

The Tallgrass Film Center’s auditorium, lobby, restrooms, and concession stand are all accessible. For additional requests or questions, email us at info [at} tallgrassfilm.com


We provide a full-service concession stand stocked with popcorn, candy, beer, seltzer, Pepsi soft drinks, waters, and other snacks. 

What parking is available?

The LUX, located in Downtown Wichita at First St. and Market (First St. is a one-way street heading East. Market is a one-way street heading North.) has a variety of parking available. There is street parking available. In some places, it is free within 2 hours or 1-hour limits (between 8a-5p Mon-Fri). There is metered parking on the street near the building as well (between 8a-5p Mon-Fri). It is free after 5 pm for any length of time until 8 am. 

How early should I arrive for a typical showing?

We 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.
