The Carroll Cinema Society (CCS) is a non-profit, student-run organization of John Carroll University in Greater Cleveland. The group’s mission is to provide students with an opportunity to deepen their appreciation of film and to learn about the art and history of the medium.
To accomplish this, the CCS offers film screenings on campus to expose students to all sorts of films. These are held in the 277-seat Donahue Auditorium of the University’s Dolan Science Center, accompanied by a brief introduction by a faculty speaker. All screenings are co-sponsored by the Tim Russert Department of Communication and Theatre Arts.
The repertoire of the CCS includes a mix of classic and contemporary American films as well as British and foreign-language films and animation. Previous screenings included Deny Arcand’s “Jesus of Montreal” (1989), Mike Nichols’ “The Graduate” (1967), Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” (1954), Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather” (1972), Jason Reitman’s “Juno” (2007), and John Hughes’ “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” (1986). In addition, we have also collaborated with the JCU Jazz Band on a very successful silent film tribute featuring Charlie Chaplin and Felix the Cat.
