Columbus' commitment to safety
The Columbus community has been able to safety reopen amidst the COVID-19 pandemic by ensuring proper health and safety protocols are in place, including a citywide mask mandate. Currently, a statewide curfew is in effect from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Thursday, Dec. 10 to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The Franklin County stay-at-home advisory, in effect until Dec. 18, asks citizens not to leave their residences or travel outside of Ohio unless it is absolutely necessary.

Film & Theaters

Columbus' film scene is growing by the day. With Hollywood knocking on our doors as a location for such films as I am Wrath and 478, there's a growing local film production industry. The Columbus College of Art and Design's film program educates some of the best animators in the nation, with several recent alumni earning Oscars for their work on Frozen

When you visit, you'll find a big variety of arthouse screening locations, like Studio 35 in Clintonville, The Drexel in Bexley, The Gateway Film Center near Campus, and the Grandview Theater in Grandview. The Wexner Center for the Arts screens avant-garde and rare historic films from around the world in its state of the art exhibition space called The Box. During the warmer months, outdoor screenings are popular. 

Film festivals, like the Columbus International Film & Animation Festival and the Columbus Jewish Film Festival are another way to partake in the film scene.
