We keep right on program changes

... The Student Centre  the end of the 70s: for the last five days I have been trying to get the ticket for a screening, but the woman in the box office keeps telling me that theyre sold out. The canteen is completely empty, and its 1 pm. A bunch of students is standing in front of the cinema and bags the usher to let them in, just for a while, to get the feeling... The usher is relentless. Noise is coming from the cinema, cheering, cries. Could it be a football match broadcast? Fortunately no a cultural phenomenon is happening inside SC Cinema matinees!...

The cult matinees, sold out for days in advance, having a rooting and not film mood are a part of nice memories of the generations from the 70s and 80s who went to the Student Centre as if on pilgrimage. High rate cinema block busters and easy going atmosphere had for years filled the largest cinema room on the Balkans SC Cinema. People would sit on the floor, commentate on the scenes aloud, and the woman in the box office would have a nervous breakdown every day at noon due to the invasion of students who wanted to take part in this phenomenon...

In cooperation with the Student Centre (Culture of Change) this year we will try to revive the cult SC Matinees at 1 pm. This is a pioneer venture and we are not sure if it will work out, since it will be hard to get the audience used to mass cinema going at 1 pm. However, we boldly set out on this trip because we believe that, with the right program selection, at a certain moment there is a possibility to win the old fame back. We have prepared the program comprising non-commercial hits among which are the titles currently in the cinemas all over the world. Good luck to us...
