Welcome to the completely unofficial site of Cinema 1544, the (also completely unofficial) Center For Neuroscience biweekly movie night!  To join the Cinema 1544 mailing list, send an email to jsjohnson at ucdavis dot edu.

The main reason for this page existing in the first place is to help keep track of what has been shown.  The great thing is that we’ve shown so many films that I needed to make a second page because the first page (films 1-250) was getting unwieldy. (The movie synopses are merely coming along for the ride.)

Warning: Movie write-ups are extremely spoilerific, pretty much every time.  If you haven’t seen the film and don’t want it spoiled, don’t read the write-up!
