The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque screened its first-ever film in July 1985, and moved to its permanent home in August 1986. So, is the Cinematheque's 25th anniversary in 2010 or 2011? The answer, of course, is both!
The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque screened its first-ever film in July 1985, and moved to its permanent home in August 1986. So, is the Cinematheque’s 25th anniversary in 2010 or 2011? The answer, of course, is both! So we’re launching a year-long anniversary celebration featuring a variety of special films, events, and guests.
August 8 marks the 24th anniversary of the first Cinematheque film shown in its permanent home at The Cleveland Institute of Art. To commemorate the occasion, we present a weekend of special attractions:
Admission to any movie during this anniversary weekend is $9 (Cinematheque members/CIA students & staff $6) or $15 (Cinematheque members/CIA $12) for two films on the same day. Check our extended schedule for showtimes and details about the five films.
Silver Anniversary Celebration: We’re also celebrating with a year-long film series entitled “The Silver (Anniversary) Screen,” where we’ll show rare and special classic movies that the Cinematheque has never before screened. The next movie in the series will be Steven Spielberg’s rarely-revived Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), the first sequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark. It will show in a 35mm collector’s print on Saturday, August 21, at 7:40pm and on Sunday, August 22, at 8:40pm. Subsequent movies in this intermittent 14-month series will be announced as they are confirmed.
