Important Announcement: Due to the coronavirus outbreak and our need for social distancing over the next several weeks, Cinema Sundays has gone remote. Beginning Sunday, April 19, 2020, all discussions have moved online. See below for the schedule, and contact us to obtain the links to join these discussions. We are already working on the 2020-2021 season and will announce the dates in August. If you do not receive our emails and would like to be notified when the season is announced, please email Jim Patterson, Director of the Kutler Center.

The Kutler Center is the proud sponsor of Cinema Sundays, hosted by Ted Walch. Each year, a series of films is screened followed by a thought-provoking discussion. It’s casual. It’s fun. And it’s free. You may attend as many or as few of the screenings/discussions as you wish. The films vary widely in kind and flavor. The series is open to Parents, Alums, Parents of Alums, Community Members, and current students.

Below are the dates for the 2019-2020 series.  Each film begins at 3:00 p.m., and the discussion usually concludes by 6:00 p.m.  See the series poster.
