Each season takes a specific theme or personality from the world of cinema. The format is a brief spoken introduction based on a prepared handout, the screening of the film, and an informal follow-up discussion. Screenings are usually in English.
The reading exchange meets three times a year and gives you the opportunity to talk about a book you have enjoyed and listen to the choices of others. It is open to all.
