Welcome to Cornell Cinema’s Spring 2020 Films & Events!

Our website is being updated daily, so things are subject to change. Please check back closer to the start of the semester for the most-up-to-date information.

Meanwhile, we invite you to explore 82 different programs (so far) screening late January through April 2020. We would say 82 films, however, some programs involve multiple short films!

Highlights include a series of documentary films by the late, great filmmaker Agnès Varda; a 50th anniversary celebration of Earth Day; two fascinating films about pioneering modern dance choreographer Merce Cunningham (one in 3D!); more live music with silent film; and our annual showing of the short films (Animated, Documentary & Live Action) nominated for an Oscar!

See you in the theatre again Wed Jan 22, 2020 when we reopen with a screening of the sci-fi thriller AD ASTRA, starring Brad Pitt. “This is rare, nuanced storytelling, anchored by one of Brad Pitt’s career-best performances and remarkable technical elements on every level.” (

And if you haven’t purchased one yet, we still have our All Access Passes on sale! The best deal in town!
