We are a non-profit, viewer-supported film and video exhibition organization that celebrates the moving image in all its forms. Our diverse programming includes everything from tributes to great filmmakers and actors past and present, to the newest films in world cinema, music videos and special formats that push the limits of motion picture technology into the next century -- and more!
Located in the filmmaking capital of the world, our purpose is to provide Southern California audiences with the broadest possible film-going opporutnities. Our year - round, weekly screenings offer both the public and filmmakers a permanent venue to enjoy and study film on the big screen.

Juan takes photos at Cinematheque events and Hebe has assisted with everything from language translation and film submission coordination to catering!
