For 9-and-a-half-years, the Cinema Club (originally called the Key Sunday Cinema Club) has met in Saint Louis. The very first screening was of MONSIEUR IBRAHIM in February 2004 at the Landmark Cinemas at Plaza Frontenac. Today, we meet for two seasons out of the year (winter/spring and fall) for stimulating sneak previews and discussions -- all moderated by Diane Carson or Harper Barnes. Join today to become part of Saint Louis’ rich film history!
