Oak Street Cinema was founded as a single screen movie
theatre in 1995 by a core group of dedicate cinephiles who
decided to revive the old Campus Theatre.
Since its inception, Oak Street has hosted hundreds of
revivals and repertory classics; first-run arthouse, foreign,
and independent features; visitors from Terry Gilliam to
Michael Moore to Peter Fonda to Bobby Seale to Elliott Gould
to Bruce Campbell to Winona LaDuke and countless others;
programs as diverse as the Human Rights Watch Film Festival,
Unseen Cinema: Early American Avant-Garde Film, Luna Fest,
and more; major auteur-based retrospectives including Francois
Truffaut, Robert Altman, Akira Kurosawa, Ingmar Bergman,
Roman Polanski, Yasujiro Ozu, and Michelangelo Antonioni;
genre-based retrospectives including The French New Wave,
Schemers, Scoundrels, & Sexpots: The Art of Film Noir
and Gotta Dance! The Hollywood Musical; local film premieres;
and festivals including the Minneapolis-St. Paul International
Film Festival, Sound Unseen, Get Real Documentary Film Festival,
the Minneapolis Festival of Jewish Film, and others. It
is open to the public nightly, and since 2003 has operated
under the umbrella of Minnesota Film Arts.
