Ciné-club Universitaire – For film lovers

When it’s Monday evening and I am wondering what to do, having a look at the cinema club’s program is always a good and affordable option.

Three times a year (approx. October-December, January-March and March-June) a group of passionate students from the University of Geneva select movies which are projected every Monday at 20:00. The selection could be a retrospective of a film director or about a topic. Before every showing, a student of the cinema club’s committee presents an interesting analysis of the movie.

The main theme from January to March is mythology. Under the title “Gods and Heroes”, 12 movies will explore how mythology is part of our daily life and our unconscious. From epic movie such as “Jason and the Argonauts” (1993) or “Troy” (2004), to films revisiting mytological stories (“Dr. Cyclops”, 1940 or “O’ Brother”, 2000), this selection of classics goes into how Greek mythology has always inspired cinema.

The movies are shown at the Auditorium Fondation Arditi, an avant-garde cinema with over three floors, opened in 1957! It’s best to watch the movies on the second floor, and if you have long legs, you will prefer the seats in the front row.
