International Open Air Cinema 2006
(cosponsored by ISP and Caltech International Clubs)

This year's International Open Air Cinema will feature screenings every Tuesday behind Sherman Fairchild Library. Each screening is hosted by one of the international clubs on campus with support from IFilm and ISP. There will be snacks before the film, often from the country from which the film originates. Each film will have a brief introduction lead by people from the international clubs or other experts on the film. We are very excited about the series and hope you can join us for the screenings and participate in the discussions!

The dates for the films are shown below. All films are shown in the ampitheatre behind Sherman Fairchild Library and begin when it is sufficiently dark. This is ~8:30PM in June and ~8:00PM in August.
