The Seventh Annual Bigger Picture Show

Friday, May 13 at the Basile Opera Center

We created The Bigger Picture Show to celebrate the design community in Indianapolis, and this year, we’re marking our 7th anniversary with a sinfully fun look at vices in cinema. Gluttony, greed, envy—the seven deadly sins are all about too much, and we’re thrilled to celebrate an excess of local talent with a one-of-a-kind evening of drinks, food trucks, and a binge-worthy gallery of 68 re-imagined movie posters.

All of the posters will be sold in a silent auction at the Basile Opera Center on Friday, May 13, and all proceeds benefit the Indy Film Fest and its mission to create a shared experience around film.

The Bigger Picture Show is an annual fundraiser created and curated by our friends at Lodge Design. This year’s show is proudly presented by Indiana State University with additional support from Just Pop In! We’ll have Sun King Brewing Company beer on tap, refreshing wine, and delicious food trucks for you to enjoy.


This year’s show has a new home at 40th and Pennsylvania Street.

Created by our friends at Lodge Design in 2009, the Bigger Picture Show has grown into our biggest fundraiser, and one of the city’s most popular design events of the year. From the biggest box office hits by the decades to Oscar winners for Best Original Screenplay to an entire show built around the theme “50 Degrees of Greg Kinnear,” Lodge curates the show around a different theme. Since 2009, the Bigger Picture Show has helped raise more than $23,000 for the Indy Film Fest, and allowed us to engage a new movie-loving audience that isn’t afraid to reach out and punch us in our throats with their awesomeness.The Bigger Picture Show is made possible by our friends at Lodge Design.

"After a several years of attending this event, I know a few things for certain: I'll always go to the Bigger Picture Show, I'll always buy something and I'll never regret it."

We're already looking forward to next year's show

Thanks for all the love, Indy.
