The IU Cinema

Where arts venues are places of study

We’re fortunate to have some of the world’s finest arts venues and museums, which are not only places for exceptional performances and exhibits—they’re hubs for academic study. At the IU Cinema, students, faculty, and visiting filmmakers and actors participate in symposia, film series, and events that cover topics like African diaspora, femininity and feminism, and the Great War. The cinema doubles as a research facility, allowing scholars to revisit cinematic texts archived within IU’s vast collections.
