A BRIEF HISTORY OF PADUCAH FILM SOCIETY
AND MAIDEN ALLEY CINEMA
opening of Maiden Alley Cinema is a dream come true for all
of us.The Paducah Film Society,
a 501 c 3 nonprofit organization, was founded in 1991 by a
group of arts-minded individuals who saw a need for an outlet
for foreign, independent and documentary film. For the first
five years of operation, PFS screened one film per month,
Sundays at the Cinema. As interest increased within the community,
programming expanded to multiple screenings. While the space
we rented from Paducah's Market House Theatre was adequate,
we were limited as to how often we could present our films
due to the demand of the Market House's live production programming.
We needed a new home, and Maiden Alley Cinema was born.
Since then, Paducah Film Society (Maiden Alley
Cinema) has become one of the area's leading arts organizations,
bringing the art of the film to a much wider audience. Our
regular weekly films, special film events, children's programs
and vintage film series provide an ever-changing and exciting
embellishment to the growing cultural community of Paducah,
We need your help to keep PFS viable at the new Maiden Alley
Cinema by way of Memberships, Private and Corporate Event
Sponsorships and Commemorative Opportunities.
Of course private and corporate donations are always welcome
and always fully tax deductible.

FILMS WE SHOW
Film is becoming a clear and present venue for artists to
express themselves and their viewpoints. It rides along side
music as another way to entertain and support what has become
a billion dollar industry by some, and also which can be used
by others as a purely artistic tool.
Today mainstream film has become a part of modern
day life. We can barely turn our heads with out seeing or
hearing about the next big film and what a Hollywood insider
is doing with their free time. What tends to remain hidden
is how the next great filmmaker of our time is using film
in Boise, Tokyo, Aberdeen or Olsow. Our interest in film here
at Maiden Alley goes beyond the visible business aspect of
film as Hollywood uses it and into the heart of what film
can offer us in the way of documentary, animation, experimental,
and narrative filmmaking.
Individuals finding funding, and working outside
the mainstream industry create what we call independent film.
Whether they choose not to take part in Hollywoods system,
or have yet to break in, these films and filmmakers are arguably
the purest there are. To bring a film from simply a passing
idea to a script or outline, to a recorded image and a final
print is, for a filmmaker, an emotional, financial and time
intensive task. The artistic ability and heart and soul it
takes to create a film without support from the mainstream
film industry is proof positive that there is more behind
what we show than an interest in money and cool action
scenes. Be it foreign or domestic, we strive to offer
the best in filmmaking, and the best in films.
