  • Sunday evening, starting at 7pm
  • Friday evening, starting at 8pm

All the films we show are grouped into two, three or five film seasons. The films in a season are linked by genre (e.g. British Silent Films), director (e.g. Valario Zurlini), star (e.g. Michèle Morgan), or theme (e.g. Classics of Mexican Cinema).

You can join online, in person at any screening, or by completing and returning the print form.
