Kriterion Cinema

Resistance fighters founded the Kriterion right after the war in 1945 as a student-run cinema where undergraduates could help support their studies in a bleak post-war landscape.

Celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, the Kriterion is still democratically run entirely by students, having earned a place in the hearts of indie filmgoers with its eclectic mix of first run features, contemporary classics, film festivals and a hopping bar.
