Cinema Center wants to let “You Be the Star” during an entertaining event that doubles as the venues most popular annual fundraising event. This year, “You Be The Star” takes place at Punch Films in Fort Wayne and offers unique opportunities to explore our world through the art of film.
Films of the Coen Brothers are the focus in 2019 as the Cinema Center invites you to step into vignettes to recreate iconic moments from True Grit, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, and Fargo. Props and costumes will be available for performances that will be filmed by the Punch Films team and made into GIF files to be sent to participants at a later date.
No celebration would be complete without a DJ to help attendees loosen up. Also on tap are a cash bar, hors d’oeuveres, a live auction, and a presentation of inaugural awards, including Cinema Center Star Volunteer, recognizing an individual who demonstrates generous support by sharing time and talent, and the Cinema Center Star of Cinema that recognizes individuals or organizations that support the organization through their advocacy, contributions, and commitment to Cinema Center’s service to the Fort Wayne community. Proceeds from the event will benefit Cinema Center programming and operating expenses. Attendees must be 21 or older. — Chris Hupe
