Movie Club

Year-round

Love talking about movies? Looking for that special movie-loving community? Book club not working out?

Meet up for SIFF Movie Club: our new, monthly cinema program held on the first Wednesday of each month. Watch a classic movie at SIFF Film Center, then join us for an informal post-film discussion at Uptown Hophouse (show your ticket for a 20% discount on all items!). Tickets are lower than regularly priced screenings, and all are welcome to attend! Subsequent films may be suggested by attendees.
