All Quiet on the Western Front (1930)

Sunday, November 11, 2018 @ 3:00 PM
Central Library
- 802 3rd St SE, Calgary, AB
FREE Admission (as part of our Library Series, which presents a free screening of the film along with a short lecture/guided discussion of its cultural and artistic significance.)


The film follows a group of German schoolboys, talked into enlisting at the beginning of World War I by their jingoistic teacher. The story is told entirely through the experiences of the young German recruits and highlights the tragedy of war through the eyes of individuals.


In partnership with the Calgary Public Library, these free Sunday afternoon screenings are paired with a lecture and guided conversation about each film’s artistic and cultural impact. One film from each of our programming series will be featured, as well as a special Remembrance Day screening. 

About Calgary Cinematheque

We are a non-profit film society dedicated to presenting significant, challenging, and essential works of cinema art in Calgary. During our season, which runs from October to April, we screen films weekly, in curated programs which situate each film in a thematic and historical context. We do this because we believe cinema is an essential form of artistic, social, and political expression. Audiences should be able to engage with a wide range of cinematic expression, not only with what is commercially viable. We believe in the power of sharing these experiences with other people in a theatrical setting and we strive to cultivate a community around that experience.
