In the heart of Questembert

A dynamic associative cinema

A place of discovery and exchange

Open to its environment

It is a cinema of proximity, at human size, anchored in a rural territory, listening to its inhabitants and partners.

It programs both general public films and rarer films, labeled “Art et essai”, often in VO, and of great interest. It very regularly offers animations for all audiences.

In 2012, the two theaters(250 and 84 seats) were equipped with digital projectors. The 35 mm projector of the large room is preserved and still works sometimes.

The Iris cinema is classified as “Art & Essai

Since 2008, it is also distinguished by the three labels:

  • “Young Audience”
  • “Heritage and Repertoire”
  • “Research and Discovery”

Associative, it functions thanks to its volunteers

More than one hundred members, including about sixty active volunteers, are involved in various ways: board of directors, accounting, programming/animation commission, reception of young audiences/schools/seniors, screening, cashiering, maintenance…

Four salaried employees on permanent contracts coordinate projects, ensure programming, animation, communication, screening and maintenance of the premises.

The cultural project of the Iris Cinema

Together, volunteers and employees have defined the cultural project of the Iris Cinema. It revolves around 4 objectives:

  • providing a cultural offer of proximity
  • showing and defending the diversity of cinematographic creation
  • Touching and building loyalty among all audiences
  • Favoring encounters and exchanges, by proposing animations and regular meetings
