Cinema Club

Saturday, November 12 at 11:00 AM

Free MSP Film Society Members Only Event. Not a Member? Join here.

Welcome to the MSP Film Society’s Cinema Club - it’s like a book club but for cinephiles. Watch a selected movie with us at The Main Cinema and join a discussion led by a member of our film team, a critic, or a subject expert. Be ready to share your unique perspective on what we screen with other members and attendees. Cinema Club movie selections will range from sneak previews, to awards contenders, to classics, movies that’ll have you talking.

Free for MSP Film Society Members only, but seating is limited so reserve your seat today.

About Women Talking

Based on the best-selling novel by Miriam Toews, Women Talking follows a group of women in an isolated religious colony as they struggle to reconcile their faith with a series of sexual assaults committed by the colony's men.
