Cinémathèque is the term coined by French fans of films who would gather to watch older films back before such films were available on VHS or DVD.  Oxy’s Film & Media Studies Program in AHVA has run a cinémathèque series for many years; this year the screenings have been selected by Seniors majoring in Film & Media Studies, who will also introduce each screening and give a brief discussion of how the film or television episode fits into their Senior Comps project.  This is an excellent opportunity to see some great screenings and hear from a Senior about the research process.
all in Johnson 200 at 7:00pm unless mentioned.
