The NAC Movie Club
Spring 2012

Over our more than forty years, NAC has consistently presented film. Typically we present one-off screenings or a short series programmed around a theme. Most often, we’ve presented documentaries and we almost always include a Q&A with one of the film’s creators or a discussion led by an expert on the subject. We will continue this type of film programming, but the NAC Movie Club is going to be a bit different.

As downtown St. Catharines prepares for the arrival of the Performing Arts Centre and the 180 seat film house that will be a part of it, the board and staff at NAC thought we should devote some energy to nurturing the community of local film enthusiasts. There are many organizations doing good work in this regard already — The Brock University Film Society, Cinéfest Niagara, The Shaw Festival Film Series — come to mind, but as we all know, we’re starved for cinema experiences in Niagara and there’s an ever expanding feast of film out there. So NAC is going to serve up some cinematic fare of our own.

To build cohesion in the film community we’ve decided to form a club within the NAC collective, the unoriginally yet aptly titled, NAC Movie Club. To join you must be a NAC member in good-standing. It costs $25 to sign on to the movie club and in exchange you’ll get special email notices of the screenings and free popcorn. Club members will also enjoy improved presentation facilities with the newly designed audio and video system installed thanks to the efforts of NAC member Gavin Fearon. If you’re interested in joining email with MOVIE CLUB in the subject line and we’ll set you up to join the club.

We’ve put together this spring series, check it out, maybe we’ll see you out.
