The Public i is happy to announce two new sustaining members, The Art Theater Co-op and Smile Politely.
The Art Theater Co-op is a century-old treasure in downtown Champaign (126 W. Church St.) that screens independent and international films in a classic cinema setting. It is also home to several local film festivals, including the recent Latin American Film Festival in September. A part of the national cooperative movement, the Theater is community owned. For more go to www.arttheater.coop.
Smile Politely is an online magazine that covers local music, art, culture, sports, food, drink, and politics. It has published exposes on Jimmy John’s hunting photos, former Champaign Mayor’s birther comments, and Urbana Free Library’s book purging. The Public i and Smile Politely have worked together since 2009 when we produced a timeline for Kiwane Carrington. For more see smilepolitely.com or contact email@example.com.
