Film Club
In the fall of 2015, The Grand Cinema began piloting a new club program that runs through the school year.

Film Club is an afterschool program at Lincoln High School where passionate students learn to analyze movies and to bring their own stories to life through film. Students meet weekly to learn about and make movies. Once a month the students visit The Grand for a film and discussion. 

The initial successes of this program will guide the continued expansion of The Grand's education programming. 

Please direct any questions about Tacoma Film Camps and Film Clubs to Faith Stevens, Project Coordinator.
