Best Place to Watch Foreign Films

Cinematheque at Cleveland Institute of Art

Park your car, pick your way through the labyrinth of art-lined hallways, and take a seat for some of the most interesting foreign films shown anywhere. Care to see the dark comedy of Swedish director Roy Andersson? Or an epic Brazilian tragedy set in the largest prison in Central America? Cinematheque director John Ewing has brought hilarious, curious, and bizarre films to Cleveland for almost two decades, and he's won national recognition for his ability to track down rare films and put together film series that educate almost as much as they entertain.
