For the most in-depth presentations of art-house cinema and cult films, head to the Harvard Film Archive in the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, situated in the heart of the Harvard University campus. Both a cinema and film archive, the educational approach is reflected by monthly or seasonal selections that take a long look at some of the world’s most renowned filmmakers. That might be a retrospective on a director such as Fritz Lang or Wim Wenders; or it might delve into a genre, such as westerns; or the work of a particular studio. Most often a series will be headed by a main screening with a filmmaker or artist in attendance to talk about their work. Usually, films are only screened Friday through Monday nights.
