The goal for the Cultural District is to attract visitors downtown to experience diverse social, arts, and cultural opportunities. There are events for every age and interest. Last Saturdays is a great way for individual artists and organizations to share their message with a large, built-in audience, and create vibrancy in downtown Fort Wayne.

Frued’s Last Session
PPG ArtsLab, Auer Center for the Arts
300 E Main St
Freud’s Last Session (September 16 through 25, 2016) unfolds in the looming shadow of WWII, and places in one room an elderly Sigmund Freud, brilliant psychiatrist and long-time atheist, and Oxford professor C.S. Lewis, prolific writer, professed Christian and outspoken critic of Freud’s teaching. The ensuing 90 minutes of conversation and debate sparkles with wit, articulate argument, and some pathos—as well as with surprising civility. This critically-acclaimed drama by Mark St. Germain is a must see for everyone on both sides of the issues. Starring Larry Bower as Sigmund Freud and Jeff Salisbury as C.S. Lewis. Rated PG for subject matter—recommended for high school and up.
Living Fort Wayne Film Series
Allen County Public Library
900 Library Plaza
The Living Fort Wayne Film Series was an idea that developed from the 2014 My City Summit. After the Summit, a group of volunteers came together who were passionate about creating a free film series that not only offered free entertainment for all ages, but also introduced individuals to different areas of Fort Wayne that they may not have visited otherwise. The excitement and support for this series has grown tremendously, and we’re so excited that we were able to bring it back for a third year! This week’s film is The Book of Life.
7pm – 12am
G Sanchez Productions, Kenny Redd, Deceptaconz, Phriends, Danny Miami, DJ Loshe and live performances from Quise, E Tate and Alibi, and 1 Unbelievable Special Guest Performer!
