Theater releases

The 6th Caleidoscope Indian Film Festival of Boston will be held November 6th, 7th, and 8th in a hybrid mode, with a few selected feature films in Lexington Venue Theater in Lexington Venue 1794 Massachusetts Avenue Lexington, MA 02420, and the rest virtually through our streaming partner site Festivee.
Below you will find the listed films playing in both. Please note that there is no overlap of theater and online films being screened. For physical screening tickets, we will publish a link to the theater web site. For online, there will be a single festival pass which you can purchase to obtain access to all feature and short films.We fully understand that in today’s environment, our audience will want reassurance about theater safety. Caleidoscope and the theater will not only follow all applicable state and federal guidelines for Covid-19 events, but will limit attendance further than whats allowed. The theater at Lexington Venues has 175 seats and is a large hall. Both doors will be kept open. We do believe that social distancing will be possible and a mask will be required for every attendee at all times. Furthermore, the theater will only be screening our films, so there will be the ticket holders of Caleidoscope Films only on premises. There are a number of parking lots nearby and on street parking is also available.
