Hey Lowellites! We're the Classic Film Club, and what we do is (you guessed it!) watch and analyze classic films. But don't be fooled by the word "classic" and think solely of old Hollywood pictures — in reality, our films come from across eras and virtually every corner of the world; typically more than three quarters of our films are foreign, and the vast majority of them date from around or after the 1960s. During our meetings we simply have a conversation, covering concepts ranging from the film's historical context, to its use of tools like color, framing, music, and symbolism, to our own personal opinions and interpretations of its themes. We also have optional field trips to local theaters, and attend several of SF Art & Film's free weekly Cine Club meetings. And the best part about it all is that, although we will go deep in our conversations and ask that our members be engaged, absolutely no experience or prior knowledge is required. Many of our members know little to nothing about film going in to the year, but come out with a solid grasp of world cinema by the end (and, of course, have a lot of fun while doing so). We meet at 3:45 pm every Friday in room 135, and our meetings usually last 30–40 minutes. Everyone is welcome and we're always looking for new members, so if anything about film sparks your interest, come check us out!
