Cicada Cinema, a Bloomington-based pop-up movie theater, will present a film series at 7 p.m. Jan. 26, 28 and 29 based on the works of director and screenwriter Jim Jarmusch.

These screenings are the result of a collaboration with the IU Cinema and its recent series “Jim Jarmusch: Cinema’s Enigmatic Deadpan Poet.”
