Film Venues and Movie Collections

February 25th, 2008

The Academy Awards’ broadcast always reminds me of great films, past and present, which I haven’t yet seen. For our campus community of frugal consumers, there are some wonderful options–from campus film clubs to library collections–in which to catch up on some viewing.


Campus Venues:

Wisconsin Union, Films

Contemporary films—series of international, documentary and cult classics.


Cinematheque (Vilas Hall)

Classic film series, international, rare and archival.

Library Collections:

Open Book Café

Collections of popular literature, graphic novels, music, audio-books and, of course, movies.


Tip: Looking for a specific film or artist (actor or director)? If so, then run a search for the film or artist by using the MadCat library catalog.

Open the MadCat Basic search screen.
Enter your search terms (title or name of artist), and set search for Words Anywhere.
Limit your search to “Video, Slide, Film, etc.” by selecting this choice from the “Quick Limit” pull-down menu.
Click search for selection of records.
