Cultural Film & Lecture Series

Reel Ability

Films are screened in the Cinema of the Connelly Center on Villanova’s campus on:

  • Sundays at 3:30 pm and 7:00 pm
  • Mondays at 7:00 pm.

Audience members are encouraged to buy dinner at the Connelly Center before the screening.  Food and drink are also allowed in The Connelly Cinema during the screening of the film.

The Cultural Film Series features speakers who bring expertise about the films.  These speakers are chosen because they can enhance the viewing experience for members of the audience. The speakers, who introduce the film and lead a discussion after the screening, are only present for the Monday evening screenings.

As always, all screenings are free and open to the public.

For more information, contact Dr. John O’Leary at, or by calling (610) 519-4454.
