April 2019 Calendar

New Wave Film Club

New Wave is the Film Society’s membership program for members in their 20s and 30s. New Wave Friends, Angels, and Patrons receive invitations to Film Club meetings taking place throughout the year. Similar to a book club, the Film Society will select a film that is playing in our theaters and host a discussion to explore the film’s aesthetics, themes, and why it matters, in a casual setting with refreshments. The conversation is led by Tyler Wilson and Maddie Whittle from our Programming team. Our next meeting will take place on Monday, May 6, focusing on the Opening Night selection from this year’s Art of the Real, Just Don’t Think I’ll Scream. If you’re interested in becoming a part of the New Wave for access, or to RSVP as a current member, please email
