Cinematheque: Beauty – Matinee

About Cinematheque

The 2018 International transforms the museum’s theater into a cinematheque. Taking its name from the French, a cinematheque is a small film house or a film library. Libraries open up a world of knowledge to the public, and the International’s Cinematheque likewise brings to Pittsburgh worlds captured by filmmakers near and far.
