What’s the Film Club?
Film lovers gather on selected Sunday mornings for the purpose of screening and critiquing independent or foreign films not yet in release in the Washington area. Gary Arnold will host and introduce each film in the series and will lead a post screening discussion with the audience. No, we don’t tell you what is being screened ahead of time.
