Seasoned students likely know of Montreal’s Cineclub Film Society, a group of cinephiles who organize film screenings at Concordia University theaters (and the occasional church). But if you’re new to town, it’s worth checking out for an old-fashioned night at the movies.
On Sunday, Sept. 11, the group opens its fall 2016 program with Michaelangelo Antonioni’s 1966 classic Blow-Up, at 6:30 pm, at Cinema VA-114 (1395 René Lévesque O. Métro: Lucien l’Allier). Tickets run $8 for general audiences, and $6 for students with ID/those over 65.
[From the Cineclub Film Society website]:
Open to all cinephiles since 1992, we have been bringing Montrealers the best of cinema from around the world and from all eras. With films dating from the 1890s to today. From local experimental works to Hollywood Blockbusters in cinemascope, there is something for everyone. We don’t just watch films, we experience them…on the big screen in genuine motion picture film! Part of our activities include the conservation and preservation of precious reels of celluloid in our archives. Plus : Special displays, guest speakers, café lounge etc. All in genuine intimate state-of-the-art cinemas right downtown at Concordia University. Film Society events generally run EVERY SECOND SUNDAY and are co-presented with the prestigious Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema. At intermission we serve coffee, tea, drinks and delicious home-made desserts. So come join the fun!
