The Garde Arts Center is reopening.

It’s not for live shows yet — those don’t start till September — but the Garde will be screening all sorts of acclaimed films during August.

It’s part of the theater’s Atlantic Broadband “Winter in Summer” Cinema Series, and it begins Wednesday with “Summer of Soul,” the documentary about the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival that featured an amazing roster of performers, including Stevie Wonder, Sly and the Family Stone and Mahalia Jackson.

Coming up the following week are two Oscar-nominated dramas, “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” — with Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman starring in the screen adaptation of the August Wilson play; “Minari,” which earned Yuh-Jung Youn a best supporting actress Academy Award; and the Oscar-winning documentary “My Octopus Teacher.”

The Atlantic Broadband “Winter in Summer” Cinema Series, 7:30 p.m. on dates below, Garde Arts Center, State St., New London; $12 for a single screening, $48 for a pass to all; gardearts.org, (860) 444-7373.
