Autumn 2017 UCH Cinema Season kicks off in style

The Autumn 2017 UCH Cinema Season consists of eleven screenings of classic, contemporary, foreign and family films! With a musical theme throughout, come and enjoy some of cinema’s most wondrous scores – including the timeless classics of Morricone (The Mission & Cinema Paradiso), Mancini (Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and John Williams (E.T. The Extra Terrestrial). 

Other films featured in the Autumn 2017 UCH Cinema Season continue the theme of music, but with content rather than soundtrack, so sit back and enjoy watching the inner workings of a unique orchestra in The Concert, and have some fun as the Marx Brothers take on A Night At The Opera.

University Concert Hall is delighted to have teamed with Elemental this Autumn 2017 UCH Cinema Season and family film Kubo & The Two Strings will form part of this year’s festival program.
