Lumière Club

CCA’s social film club features outstanding cinema, great conversation has moved online until we are able to safely open our theaters again. Lumière Club is named after French inventors Auguste and Louis Lumière, who were among the first filmmakers in history. In 1895 they devised and patented an early motion-picture camera and projector from which the modern cinema is derived.

Making a gift to CCA of at least $300.00 will automatically include you in this august group of like-minded supporters. Lumière Club curates a variety of programming, with up to six events themed around film, lectures, post-film discussions, special guests and performances.

Méliès Society

Celebrated as a pioneer of film, Georges Méliès was a French illusionist and film director who led many technical and narrative developments in the earliest days of cinema.

With an annual gift to CCA of at least $2,500, you will also be included in our Méliès Society affinity group. In addition to the Lumiere Club programming, Méliès Society will convene two very special events during the year. These might include dinners with industry notables, “behind the scenes” opportunities, early entry to exhibitions or pop-up encounters with film productions in New Mexico.

Méliès Society level donors will be recognized throughout CCA’s extensive programming as supporting creativity across the arts, humanities and sciences.
