Short Films at The Levoy

by Marianne Lods, Executive Director, Millville Development Corporation

Don’t miss the second annual CUT International Short Film Festival at the Levoy Theatre on September 22 and 23. The Friday evening of the festival includes the premiere of Showtime! The Story of Walter Webster and the Off Broad Street Players. I know many of our readers attend Broadway-style musicals, dramas, and comedies so you won’t want to miss this documentary showing. From 7 to 7:30 p.m., the Off Broad Street Players will perform a few numbers followed by the documentary from 7:35 to 8:05 p.m.

From 8:30 to 10 p.m. you can watch regional student films and select animation and experimental films from the CUT Film Festival. Many young filmmakers go on to lead successful careers in acting, directing, and producing films. These student films may be inspiring to a young film artist in your family.

On Saturday, September 23, the short films will be shown starting at 11 a.m. and will run until 7 p.m. From 7 to 8 p.m. the awards will be announced in all of the film categories. After purchasing your tickets, you may come and go to the Levoy Theatre as you please. If you want a lunch break, pop in to one of our fun and yummy eateries, all within a short walk of the Levoy.

ArtC is the producer of the documentary and creator of the festival. Bill Horin, along with many talented artists, worked diligently to make this a top-rate event. The festival is promoted to movie enthusiasts and the public on its website

CUT International Short Film Festival is the premier festival in New Jersey for short-form films.

CUT was founded to celebrate storytelling in the medium of motion pictures but limited to short stories. Short films have become a great way for a larger group of people to tell their stories. Not reliant on huge budgets, or massive crews, a small group of talented creatives can craft a tale of resonance and authenticity. The goal is to celebrate those stories and give them a venue in which to shine.

Doors open a half hour prior to showtimes on both Friday evening and Saturday morning. The Levoy Theatre has a snack and beverage bar in the first-floor lobby for your convenience. A two-day ticket pass is $30, and a one-day pass is $20, plus ticketing fees.

The historic Levoy Theatre is located at 126—130 N. High Street in Millville. The phone is 856-327-6400 and the general website is The theater seats 700 on three levels. You can find seating charts and much more on the website.

Let the Levoy Theatre and ArtC host you for this memorable experience that you won’t soon forget!
