About

Cinema Club is a speakeasy for movies

Hundreds of movie lovers meet one Saturday per month for a members-only screening of a film they can’t see anywhere else.

Cinema Club is a secret

The titles selected for our events are never announced in advance, so every experience is a surprise.

Cinema Club is a conversation

Most of our screenings are followed by a Q&A with filmmakers and talent, while others feature a rich discussion moderated by our energetic emcees and knowledgeable curators. Members often continue these vital conversations in the lobby or over coffee at nearby eateries, and they plan outings, discuss awards season buzz and film festival schedules in our unique members-only forums. The conversation continues on our podcast.

Cinema Club is a year-round film festival

For the past 22 years, we have offered 10 events per year with a hiatus in August and December.

Cinema Club is a lifeline for film culture of all kinds

With our breakout 2018 season, we have powered through such spin-offs as a podcast and major public screenings garnering extensive press coverage (DARK MONEY and THE LAST MOVIE), while our 2019 season will boast book signings by film culture luminaries and more.

Cinema Club has an echo

In order to accommodate hundreds of eager, loyal members, we offer a morning screening at 10:30 AM and an afternoon screening at 1:30 PM for each monthly meeting.
