Movie Club

NRI’s movie club is a monthly program that encourages supporters to watch or re-watch a selected movie and then join a discussion led by NRI and NR talent.

The movie industry was one of the hardest hit by COVID-19 restrictions. For only the fourth time in history, the Academy Awards were delayed by two months, now taking place on April 25th. What does this mean for the future of film? Were enough movies released in 2020 to even have the Oscars? With ratings declining even before the quarantine, are the awards still considered relevant? Our Spring 2021 Movie Club will feature NRI fellow Kyle Smith and National Review’s Armond White, who will answer these questions and more.

We look forward to a spirited discussion!

Thursday, April 15
3:00 PM ET

Please note that the movie club is for NRI supporters who give at the $250 level and up.
We hope you will consider giving a tax-deductible gift to National Review Institute, the non-profit journalistic think tank that supports the NR mission, to join us for our movie club and our other virtual programming!  If you have any questions or would like to register, please email
