SCI-Arc Cinema Series

SCI-Arc is more than a school of architecture. It is fast becoming a major cultural hub in downtown Los Angeles and the Arts District. The SCI-Arc Cinema Series is part of our initiative to bring breadth and the Liberal Arts to architectural education, but it is also a way for us to reach out and contribute to the intellectual and visual culture of our local community.

The first Tuesday of each month, SCI-Arc will screen major motion pictures related to architecture, technology, and visual culture, with special live content at the front end. M.C. Michael Stock (SCI-Arc Faculty and KXLU DJ) will engage screenwriters, production designers, directors, as well as theorists and historians to contextualize the films and engender discussion. 

The SCI-Arc Cinema Series is free and open to the Public. Shows begin at 7pm in the Keck Auditorium. Popcorn and drinks will be available.
