According to the gallery’s director, Nancy Bernard, the idea behind CineClub is to create an interest in the cinema as the 7th art.
It is also intended that the club will foster an environment where everyone can gather to share movies from around the world, outside of mainstream.
CineClub provides the community another option for a little nighttime entertainment and a social gathering to generate discussions.
There will be an exhibition of a movie at the National Gallery within the theme of the programme changing every three months, featuring a theme or an author.
The National Gallery is a prominent and growing cultural institution that serves to promote and encourage the appreciation and practice of the visual arts, which includes film, of and in the Cayman Islands.
