Film Events at the JCC

In order to continue the ongoing efforts of enriching, educating, and enlightening both our Jewish and non-Jewish community members, the JCC now offers a variety of year-round film screenings that are not part of our annual Jewish Film Festival. The Holzman Auditorium has a state-of-the-art sound system that makes each of these unique film experiences unforgettable.

San Antonio Jewish Film Festival
The Barshop JCC Jewish Film Festival promotes Jewish values and diversity through the medium of film, striving to entertain, educate, and raise community awareness of Jewish identity, history, and culture. 
Silver Cinema
In conjunction with Golden Manor Jewish Senior Services, the JCC offers senior adults the opportunity to watch films at the J twice a month - at 1pm on the first and third Thursdays. This film series, titled Silver Cinema, often includes screenings of past Jewish Film Festival films, in addition to a variety of other films with Jewish content. Screenings are held in the Holzman Auditorium; popcorn and coffee are served. 


Rock in the Red Zone | Sunday, May 15 | 5:30pm (doors); 6:30pm (film)
On the edge of Israel’s Negev Desert lies Sderot, a city of factory workers and rock musicians, the children of refugees from North Africa and the Middle East. Despite being pummeled for years by homemade missiles, the people of Sderot persevere. In underground bomb shelters, they create unique rhythms that have transformed Israeli music, injecting Middle Eastern influences into traditional Western beats. Searching for a story about music, filmmaker Laura Bialis stumbles into a world she never imagined. Crossing the line between observer and participant, she presents a tale of music and romance on the front lines of a never-ending war.
