AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE: Established in 1981, the American Cinematheque is a nonprofit, viewer-supported film exhibition and cultural organization dedicated to the celebration of the Moving Picture in all its forms. The Cinematheque presents film and video programming that ranges from the classics and world cinema to the outer frontiers of the art form. Exhibition of rare

works, special prints within our series, etc., are a Cinematheque tradition that keep the avid film lover coming back for once-in-a-lifetime cinema experiences. We also treat our audiences to fascinating post-screening discussions with the filmmakers who created

the work. The American Cinematheque owns and operates the historic 1922 Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. The building has won every major preservation award since the completion of its renovation in 1998. The Cinematheque programs the 1940 Aero Theatre on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica as well as the Egyptian. Cinematheque is pronounced "Cinema-tech" like discotheque, not "Cinema-teek."
