About The Ryder


The Ryder Film Series has presented the best in international, independent and classic American films in Bloomington for forty years. If your taste runs toward personal movies that you won’t find at the multiplex, major festival winners, or activist documentaries, you’ve come to the right place.

The Ryder screens films at several locations, each with its own unique charms.

A monthly film program is published in The Ryder magazine, Bloomington’s free magazine of the arts and popular culture. The magazine is distributed in over 250 locations in and around Bloomington and the Indiana University campus.
