The Center holds film screening events to introduce excellent movies from Japan and other countries, mostly on weekends. To show part of the essence of expression using media technology through movies, the ones screened cover a variety of genres and a wide range of time periods from classics to new releases. We also occasionally hold talk events with directors and actors involved in the movies.
YCAM Cinema is held in the Studio C small theater space at the end of the second floor in YCAM. *For information on other building facilities, please see the floor guide.
