The AFS Cinema is the Austin Film Society’s two-screen art house theater. After a significant renovation, AFS opened the cinema in spring of 2017 with two screens, a full bar and café, and an event hall available for rentals. AFS (a 501c3 non-profit) curates a wide selection of films for its signature programs at the cinema, including repertory series, new restorations, documentaries, independent films and premieres. Additionally, the AFS Cinema offers a full schedule of first run films, featuring the best in international and independent films new to theaters. Signature film programs are often accompanied by introductions by the film programmers or other special guests.

Concessions & Drinks

AFS will be revising our meal and snack service at the cinema this summer. Our chef-prepared full menu will no longer be offered as of May 1. You can continue to enjoy our full bar (including rotating draft beers, local and imported wines and craft cocktails), award-winning popcorn, and grab & go candy and snacks, and we look forward to introducing more delicious items to our concessions stand in the weeks to come.
