IU Cinema’s first public screening was “Lawrence of Arabia” on Jan. 13, 2011. Now, the cinema’s spring programming marks its 10-year anniversary of screenings.
In the past year the IU Cinema has had to move its programming online due to the pandemic.
"While we've had to stay apart physically, the cinematic experiences we've offered virtually have helped our community stay connected,” interim director Brittany D. Friesner said in a press release. “We're excited to continue giving people the opportunity to hear from visionary filmmakers this semester, while continuing collaborations with several programming partners across campus."
The cinema will begin the celebration with a virtual screening via Zoom at 7 p.m. Jan. 13 of a video essay featuring testimonies from filmmakers that have visited over the past decade. The event is free and ticketed and tickets are available here.
Throughout the semester, the cinema will continue to celebrate its milestone. The “10 Years. 10 Films. 10 Perspectives.” series features 10 films from the past decade of programming. The series will run until March 31. Each film will run online for two weeks and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
