Free 2022 Traverse City Film Festival BATA Shuttle

You can ride the free BATA Bayline shuttle between the Downtown Theaters (State and Bijou) and the AMC Cherry Blossom Theater. Park your car at a Park and Ride lot (Meijer, AMC and Woodland Creek Furniture) and eliminate the need to park downtown or move your car from one venue to another. Shuttles are ADA accessible and air-conditioned. 

More details about the festival shuttle can be found here.



New Venue! AMC Cherry Blossom
3825 Marketplace Cir (off of Rte. 31)

Yes, for one week, our multiplex will become our town’s third “art house”—and that will be cool. We are rechristening four of their screens in honor of film artists born and raised in Michigan, including Francis Ford Coppola (born, Detroit, MI), Lily Tomlin , Jeff Daniels and Thomas Edison.

Tickets to these screenings will be purchased through TCFF here, and we’ll have a box office set up there during the fest as well. Concessions will be handled by the AMC team, and if you want to grab a more substantial snack between screenings we recommend a quick jaunt across the parking lot to Oryana West.

The line will queue in the eastside parking lot–you’ll see the tent and lots of happy volunteers! Find one of them, and they’ll direct you toward the proper line for your film.

Screening times at the AMC will be on a slightly different schedule from the State and Bijou, so please be mindful of start times and runtimes as you fill your festival dance card!

This is the marquee theater of the Traverse City Film Festival, with 553 seats and the best popcorn in town!

Right on the water and just a short walk from the State, this gem of a theater is also right next to Clinch Park.

Clinch Park
Right behind the Bijou, 111 E Grandview Pkwy

We will have a tent set up to house our panels, workshops and parties. The panel discussions are free and unticketed this year! Tickets are on sale now to our Opening Night Party and Filmmaker Party (both at Clinch Park).

Open Space
Also just off Grandview Pkwy–you can’t miss it!

Each night during the festival, we host a free movie in our outdoor cinema overlooking the bay. You can find out what’s playing at the Open Space here.
