About

The Nightlight is a new cinema venue featuring first-run independent films, special events, and local snacks and drinks.
It is a project of Akron Film+Pixel, the 501(c)3 nonprofit known for producing the Akron Film+Pixel Festival, the Freakishly Short Animation Festival, and group filmmaking projects in partnership with the Akron Art Museum. This partnership continues, as do collaborations with the Akron-Summit County Main Library and Summit Artspace.
