The Silver

On Saturday, February 4th, The Silver theater building on South Higgins collapsed under heavy snow and ice. Thankfully the theater was empty and no one was hurt. Our sympathies and thoughts are with our friends at The Silver, who have been wonderful supporters of the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival and the Big Sky Film Series. The Silver was also an official venue for the 2017 festival. 

All screenings planned for The Silver will move to a different venue. This will not affect the screening times and dates of these films, nor will it affect screenings at other venues.
