Large Format Cinema Club

Beginning of Semester Recruiting & Information Sessions

Have you ever been interested in IMAX, 70MM or other forms of large format film? Want to know more about how those types of movies are made and where the boundaries of that medium truly lie? Then the Large Format Cinema Club is for you!!

The Large Format Cinema Club (LFCC) is dedicated to educating students on the nature of large format cinema - everything from IMAX to 70mm and beyond. In order to accomplish this goal, we focus our efforts on holding various screenings throughout the semester that highlight the diverse nature of the large format medium. What's more, at these screenings, we bring in guests involved in the creation of those films or documentaries to talk about their experience working with the large format medium - everyone from Gareth Edwards with Rogue One to Mad Max cinematographer John Seale.

On top of these screenings, we hold smaller events during the semester to allow students to see beyond the normal confines of Large Format Cinema. For example, we hold video game nights with MEGA (the Makers of Entertaining Games Association) as well as partnering with other clubs to screen works that are outside of mainstream IMAX.

Currently, we are getting our semester schedule ready and are starting to reach out to guests and studios to organize screenings. If this sounds like something you would be interested in (with either the club or the organizing of events), please add us on Facebook for all of the latest information and reach out to Sam Shipp, the club's president, and he can add you to the email list. His email is

We will be holding an informational meeting this Wednesday the 13th at 7pm and this Friday the 15th at 5pm in the Michelle and Kevin Douglas IMAX Theatre in the Robert Zemeckis Center. You only need to attend one meeting, both will cover the same material. Please find the events on our Facebook page (Large Format Cinema Club), and RSVP to one of the events.

Look forward to seeing you all there.
