Criterion film club

The Criterion Film Club is a place to generate discussion and share stories on the films we love to watch.  This venue offers us a beautifully unique space to showcase films; why not deepen that experience through conversation with other movie lovers? 

A few times a year, a series of films related by theme/time period/director/etc. will be selected  by our Film Curator, Nathanael Lee. Following the last film of the series, movie-goers are invited to meet in the upstairs elevator lobby -  where coffee, tea, and baked goods will be provided - for a discussion lead by Nathanael.  Whether this is the first time you've seen these films or you are a certified film historian, all are encouraged to participate.  


our next meeting will be:

Sunday, February 18  |  9:15 pm
