Curated by EMP member Joshua Buursma, Odd Tuesdays Cineclub is dedicated to a proposition: That not all films are created equal; that some are weirder, sweeter, kinkier, and crankier than others; and that among these films are established cult favorites, essential art house classics, and more recent work that’s only begun to gather a following. In an age when media too often atomize us rather than bring us together, when we’re more likely to watch movies (especially older movies) alone on our devices rather than with a flesh-and-blood audience, it’s more urgent than ever that we deliberately come together and make seeing movies a show again.
