ArcLight Cinemas and Slamdance are expanding their two-year-old Slamdance Cinema Club program, designed to bring independent films from the festival circuit to ArcLight theaters in Hollywood and Chicago through the end of 2016.

Both ArcLight locations will screen two films each month followed by a filmmaker Q&A.

“We are excited for audiences to embrace these incredibly diverse independent films, as well as showcasing Slamdance Anarchy Shorts program. It’s partnerships like this that continue to make ArcLight’s programming unique,” ArcLight Cinemas executive vp cinema programming Gretchen McCourt said Wednesday in a statement.

Next up on the schedule is Daniel Martinico’s Excursions, which centers on a husband and wife who retreat to a remote cabin getaway, which will play the ArcLight Hollywood on July 10 and the ArcLight Chicago on July 20, followed by Nathan Williams’ thriller If There’s a Hell Below, playing Hollywood on July 11 and Chicago on July 21.
