The CSUN Cinematheque is an innovative year-round film screening program housed in the Elaine and Alan Armer Screening Room, a state-of-the-art 130 seat motion picture theater on the CSUN campus. Founded by the late Dr. John E. Schultheiss, it is the only venue of its kind in the San Fernando Valley. The Cinematheque presents thematically designed retrospectives of classic films, as well as aesthetically significant contemporary releases--in conjunction with the appearance of featured guest artists for lectures and panel discussions. Conceptual presentations are devoted to: filmographies of important directors, writers, actors, cinematographers; essential genre works; seminal documentaries; major literary, philosophical, narrative themes and traditions; defining technical and artistic models and styles. The Cinematheque is also intended as a regular venue for film organizations, student film competitions, and conferences. Collaboration is encouraged with local studios, guilds, and academies for screenings and related events.

The majority of CSUN Cinematheque screenings support the academic mission of the Cinema and Television Arts Department. These are provided in conjunction with a lecture or Q&A.

Screenings and events are open to the public and are listed on the PUBLIC SCREENING SCHEDULE.

The Elaine and Alan Armer Screening Room is located on the Cal State Northridge Campus • 18111 Nordhoff St., Northridge CA 91330 • Manzanita Hall  Room 100 (MZ100).
