Nadi Cinema, the Middle East Film Club, screens films from across the Middle East and often beyond. All films – classics, cult favorites, recent hits, comedies, tragedies, political thrillers, social commentaries, and romances, in black-white and living color – are subtitled in English. Screenings are free and open to the public. The series is hosted by Joel Gordon, Professor of History, and generally meets bi-weekly. Come see movies the way they were filmed to be screened – in a dark theater with friends and strangers.
All screenings take place in the Hembree Auditorium, room 107E in the Agriculture, Food and Life Sciences building (AFLS), next to the Pat Walker Health Center on Maple Ave. Screenings begin at 7:00 pm and are free and open to the public.
