Film Is Truth has decided on a new location and will remain in the downtown district.

The video rental store that is transitioning into a nonprofit organization will be moving to the Public Market building at 1530 Cornwall Ave. The move will start sometime in September, once renovations are complete.

The organization is currently at 211 W. Holly St., where it’s been for more than a decade.

A factor in choosing the public market is that it will allow the organization to work in a community-oriented setting promoting an appreciation of film, according to a news release. The move also gives customers access to more free parking spaces.

“Finding parking can be frustrating,” said Karl Freske, Film Is Truth’s co-founder, in the news release. “I’m pleased that we’ll be able to offer a large amount of free parking spaces for our customers and still remain downtown.

The organization has a catalog of more than 17,000 movies on DVD, Blu-ray and VHS. For details on the organization, visit its Facebook page.
