The CSUN Cinematheque is an innovative year-round film screening program housed in the Alan and Elaine Armer Theater, a state-of-the-art 130 seat motion picture theater on the CSUN campus. The Cinematheque presents thematically designed retrospectives of classic films, as well as aesthetically significant contemporary releases, in conjunction with the appearance of featured guest artists for lectures and panel discussions. Conceptual presentations are devoted to: filmographies of important directors, writers, actors, cinematographers; essential genre works; seminal documentaries; major literary, philosophical, narrative themes and traditions; defining technical and artistic models and styles. The Cinematheque is also intended as a regular venue for film organizations, student film competitions, and conferences. Collaboration is encouraged with local studios, guilds, and academies for screenings and related events.
