The sky’s the limit when it comes to live performances. The SHU Community welcomes local favorites, world-renowned musicians, SHU student ensembles and Broadway performers.

film events

Grab some buttery popcorn and settle in for everything from classic screen gems, foreign films and documentaries to beloved family fare and Hollywood’s hottest hits, often with commentary from filmmakers and experts, like our resident movie guru Susan Granger. 

diversity, inclusion and awareness

We are proud to engage in the richness of our community by providing space and programming around Black History and Pride months, wellness events and more, often in collaboration with university initiatives and faculty experts.

Location, location, location. Whether it’s a Chamber of Commerce event, a talk with one of Fairfield Public Library’s favorite authors or a film fundraiser for a local nonprofit, we are excited to connect with neighbors in the center of it all.
