Join us this fall for a season of cinema unlike any other! This season’s moving, riotous and thought-provoking offerings include an extensive program of Iranian films presented in conjunction with the museum’s Salaam Cinema! 50 Years of Iranian Movie Posters exhibition. The fall program will also feature two screenings with NFL star, 1970s action-hero and NU alumnus Fred Williamson, the Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation, and a recently-restored short film portrait of Hairy Who artist Karl Wirsum!
