WELCOME, FILM LOVERS!
examples of past Cinema Club films
The Cinema Club is the nation's premier sneak preview film society. On select Sunday mornings in eight different cities this winter/spring, we will preview and discuss the best new American independent and foreign films of the season. Always a secret until the day of the screening, our movies are shown before their local release, letting our members view and respond to them with true surprise and spontaneity.
After each screening, our distinguished moderators – local film experts, professors and critics – will lead a forty-five minute discussion with club members directly in the theater. At many of our showings, our moderators are joined in discussion by fellow film scholars, esteemed film critics and occasionally filmmakers themselves.
Our distinguished group of programmers have been guiding film societies, academic programs and even popular film festivals for over a decade. We attend dozens of leading festivals around the globe, always keeping our eyes open for the next Cinema Club gem.
Stay ahead of the curve in your city!

“You have – no joke – the most attentive and intelligent regular bunch of viewers I have ever encountered, and I've been doing this kind of presentation/Q&A thing for a long time!”
– Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times, New York Post, Slant Magazine and Salon.com
“An interesting film demands to be talked about, figured out. Members do everything that's so exhilarating about taking a college film course. And there's no downside: no grades, no exams, no grueling papers.”
– Gerald Peary, The Boston Phoenix
