The ACME was founded in April 2008, by Sara Scully and Friends of Lambertville Library in partnership with the City of Lambertville,
New Jersey in the City’s “Justice Center” (formerly the ACME Supermarket).  The Screening Room shows films every weekend using state-of-the-art digital projection and a 5.1 surround sound system.  The ACME is funded by ticket sales, Membership, individual and foundation grants, advertising sales and business sponsorships.


For three summer seasons, we produced the 2010-2012 Artist Vision Festivals which celebrated the creative visions of Hunterdon and Bucks County filmmakers, musicians, and artists with outdoor short film screenings, and live music, indoor art gallery events, and interactive “treasure hunts.”

Funding for the Festival was made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through funds administered by the Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Commission.
