Frequently Asked Questions about the <i>Université Populaire du Cinéma</i><i></i>: ​

I'd like to attend a few sessions without having to buy a Libre Pass. Can I buy a ticket for one evening?

If you wish to attend the lessons but were unable to buy a Libre Pass, we recommend you go to the evening box office to be put on the waiting list. Past experience has shown that access to the room may be restricted for the first few lessons, but the vast majority of cinema-goers who turn up usually find a place.

At 19:00, we begin redistributing the tickets allocated to Libre Pass holders who failed to show up.

I'd like to sell my Libre Pass. How can I get my money back?

If you wish to sell your Libre Pass, send an e-mail to We will check whether anyone on our waiting list is interested and send you their contact details. The UniPopCiné team will act as intermediary, but will not refund the price of your Libre Pass if you can't find a buyer.

I have a Libre Pass and would like a seat in the auditorium section. Can I reserve a seat?

The Cinémathèque has seating for 100 in the main auditorium section and for 87 in the balcony section. Seats are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are issued to Libre Pass holders in order of arrival. The first 100 patrons who show up at the box office on the day are given tickets for the auditorium section.

Patrons who would like seats in the auditorium section are advised to show up on time to pick up their tickets. The box office opens at 18:00. Tickets are not issued before the day of the screening.

I have a Libre Pass with the "Fauteuil DUO" option. Can I reserve a seat next to mine for the person joining me?

The "Fauteuil DUO" option is sold at a special price for people who want to register with the Université Populaire du Cinéma together. For organisational reasons, we cannot guarantee that you will be seated together. Tickets are issued to Libre Pass holders in order of arrival, and seats may not be reserved beforehand.

If you wish to sit with your "Fauteil DUO" buddy, we advise that you show up together and on time to increase your chances of finding seats together.

I'd like to continue discussing the various topics addressed during the UniPopCiné sessions. Have you thought about setting up an interactive blog?

In addition to the short session held after each lesson, which provides an opportunity for participants to engage with the speaker, we have created a Facebook page ( where participants can continue discussing the topics raised during the lessons in a more informal setting. On this page, users can post comments, photos and film clips related to the UniPopCiné lessons.
