IU Searching for Cinema Director
Indiana University has begun its search to replace Jon Vickers as cinema director. He has served as founding director since 2010. Vickers intends to remain in Bloomington and pursue other business ventures. Over his more than 25 years in the business, he has overseen the final construction and launch of three film venues and programs in the Midwest, all of which have gained some level of national reputation. Vickers previously served as managing director of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center at the University of Notre Dame. In the early 1990s, he also opened the Vickers Theatre, an independent, single-screen arthouse in Three Oaks, MI.
