- Enzian is a non-profit cinema and the home of the Florida Film Festival.
- The Enzian Theater opened its doors on March 22nd, 1990, as the first independent theater in Central Florida, featuring an eclectic mix of foreign language films and classics from all eras. In 1994 we started hosting various independent film festivals, including the Florida Film Festival (FFF), which has become one of the largest in the region, attracting over 60k attendees annually and receiving numerous awards, including Best Artistic Achievement at South by Southwest Film Conference & Festival 2016.
COVID-19 is a new virus spreading rapidly in the last few weeks. It can be transmitted through direct contact with an infected person, and it’s also common for people to catch COVID-19 from infected surfaces like door handles or toilets.
The first symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, fatigue, and nausea, followed by vomiting and diarrhea within 24 hours. If you have any of these symptoms while attending the theatre, please stay home until they go away so that you don’t spread them to other patrons!
