The Bell Auditorium is the nations first and only dedicated non-fiction film screen.

More recently, the Bell Auditorium has screened a month long activist film series, a retrospective of the works of Jean Rouch, a New Jewish cinema program, and showcases such as Search and Rescue, a weekly collection of discarded ephemera from the University of Minnesota Film Archive. The Bell Auditorium operates nightly with the mission of bringing the best in non-fiction cinema to the Twin Cities.
