Cinema and Scenery 

A stroll through downtown is about to become even more scenic this spring, thanks to Cinema at Citygarden. Cinema St. Louis encouraged local filmmakers to create short works with nature as a main focus, and beginning on May 25, the winning shorts will be played on loop at the Citygarden’s video wall. Citygarden, a 2.9-acre strip of greenery, fountains and statues, has become a gem in the heart of St. Louis and is located between Eighth and Chestnut streets along Market Street. The juried competition will have three winners, all receiving cash prizes -- $1,500 for first place, $1,000 for second place and $500 for third place -- which will be announced on Friday, May 25. These shorts, as well as other entries chosen by Cinema St. Louis, will also be included in the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase in August. For more information call 314-289-4150 or visit
