What we're about

Meet up with other cinephiles for discussions of classic, cult, and documentary films!

Format:

Watch films on your own time and meetup to talk about them (like a book club (http://www.meetup.com/Montreal-Science-Fiction-Book-Club/)). The discussions to be held at pubs and/or cafés.

Movie Selection and Participation:

An important element of this club is movie selection. Films will be selected at least three months in advance by those who attend the discussions.

Members will have at least one month to buy, borrow, download, or stream the movies and watch them on their own time.

The purpose of this group is to get movie fans together; to meet people with similar interests in a comfortable environment.

Screenings:

Occasionally, I will post Meetups for screenings, in those cases we will see the film together and hold a discussion afterwards.

Fees:

I will be charging $1.00/person fee at each discussion to help cover the annual Meetup fees. For screenings, free or paid, the fee will be waived.

With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror. https://io9.gizmodo.com/brightburns-latest-trailer-might-be-the-best-spin-on-su-1833094672 Official Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NULgjJn5VnA&list=PLkxnI9K93BlbYGF8lvvzNxfH08t_9zhha

Screening: Animation Celebration

VA-114 Cinema (Fine Arts (VA) building of Concordia University)

(120 min., 16mm + 35mm) Various directors Amongst the 5000 reels of film to be found in the CFS archives are hundreds of animated films spanning a century and originating from many nations. From Lotte Reiniger to Chuck Jones. From Walt Disney to Jiri Trinka. From the era of pencils to the era of pixels. In an age of having too much choice, it’s nice to simply allow someone else to decide what’s on the menu for a change especially if it includes some nice surprises that would never have popped up in your on-line algorithm-based universe. With that in mind, rest assured that we have selected the best of the best to entertain you (and frankly, blow your mind) Presented mostly on 16mm and 35mm formats, much of it can’t even be found on-line and some are the only prints to be found anywhere. Because the program is so packed with diverse talent and is our last screening of the season, it truly is a celebration! Billets / Tickets: 8$, 6$ (Étudiants / Students, 65+), sur place seulement, argent comptant / At the doors, cash only
