Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Is international cinema on break during spring and summer? Their coming soon page still has the winter 2019 poster up.

Thanks,

Pirate

Dear pigsquatch,

International Cinema, the longest-running program of their kind in the world, recently commemorated their 50th(!) anniversary. They shows two or three curated international films of artistic, cultural or historical note for free in the SWKT (KMBL, for ye uninitiated) most weeks during fall and winter semesters. As to their current availability, they say on their website:

Dear IC patrons,

Thank you for your support this past winter semester! Fall semester starts with the Encore Weekend on 6-7 September 2019.

We look forward to seeing soon again this fall!

From the IC team

A call to their offices affirms their summer hiatus, but if free showings of films are what you seek, be sure to check out the Harold B. Lee Library's summer film series, which has a showing of the 1939 Sherlock Holmes classic Hound of the Baskervilles,
showing this Friday, June 14 on original archival film.

Suerte,

Ardilla Afilmcionado

P.S. To film lovers in Salt Lake City I'd recommend the Utah Film Center, which shows a number of independent films and documentaries Tuesday evenings free of cost in the Salt Lake City Public Library. Filmmakers and directors are often present for panels after the showing.
