The CERN CineClub is a meeting point every Thursday for anyone who wants to discover, discuss, and appreciate cinema with people who are truly interested in the art of the moving image. In the actual context where downloading became easier than cooking an egg, one might wonder why bother when it can be watched on any computer. Well, cinema is not an individual activity. What the CineClub offers is a big screen with good quality image and sound. It also offers a careful selection, for allowing people to (re-)discover new and forgotten authors. Finally, it offers the opportunity for meeting people sharing a common interest. So come every Thursday, and see by yourself that watching films can actually be a real party!

Every Thursday at 20 h 00

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”

At the edge of technology and physics theory, where science fiction meets science, CERN make become true what was once fantasy. In that optic, the CineClub is willing to explore four science-fiction cinematographic pieces, embracing what was or what still is, beyond our knowledge. Time travel, moon energy harvesting, human cloning, superior understanding of nature, all are fantasies driving research and development towards real achievements, maybe even revolutions in our conception of the world.
