Christ's Films is a student-run cinema, founded in the 1978 to provide an alternative to the expensive local cinemas. We are open to members of Cambridge University, showing a film every Saturday of full term in New Court Theatre, Christ's College. In Lent Term '99, we bought a 35mm film projector to greatly increase both sound and picture quality, and in 2008 upgraded the sound system to cinema grade Dolby Digital. We are one of only two Cambridge film societies to use 35mm film, the same format commercial cinemas use, rather than 16mm or DVD. We are also one of only two film societies able to show films in scope format [very wide screen], and the only society to have full Dolby Digital (and analogue) decoding.
