CLEMSON – The Art House Cinema at Clemson’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute has taken the first steps toward creating a unique movie theater for the Clemson area but is seeking help from the public.
The Art House Cinema wants to screen films that address the independent, classic films both new and old.
All of the films AHC plans to show are available now on DVD. So, why start a theatre?
“Because we want ours to be a social event, a place to get out of the house and find some diversion other than in a shopping mall or a church,” OLLI officials stated in a news release. “Theatre has always been social, a place to come together, to exchange views about the experience, and to enjoy refreshments. It’s much different, much more engaging than watching any flick alone at home.”
Upcoming films will include the following:
Oct. 20: Summertime from 1955 (100 minutes)
Oct. 27: Jules & Jim from 1962 (105 minutes)
Nov. 3: Brief Encounter from 1945 (86 minutes)
Nov. 10: Wrath of God from 1972 (94 minutes)
Nov. 17: Red from 1994 (99 minutes)
Nov. 24: Rules of the Game from 1939 106 minutes)
Dec. 1: Love of a Blonde from 1965 (90 minutes)
Dec. 8: Pygmalion from 1938 (96 minutes)
Dec. 15: The Importance of Being Earnest from 1952 (95 minutes)
Volunteers are needed to host each film and lead a conversation afterward. ACH will supply all the information.
