Almost 30 years ago jaar Ivens himelf was present at the opening of a cinema in the Nijmegen filmtheater Cinemarienburg. On 15 September again a new Joris Ivens cinema will opened at the present art house/filmtheater LUX (250.000 visitors a year). This cinema is part of Studio LUX, a new wing of the building especially dedicated to a national pilot, a pioneering film educational HUB with film lab.

Next to the opening ceremony a film exhibition 'Around the World in 80 films' and a film program will be presented in September in collaboration with the Ivens Foundation and with the support of Marceline Loridna-Ivens.
The exhibition shows photos of Joris Ivens and all kinds of partners, filmmakers, artists around the world, like Sergej Eisenstein, Luis Bunuel, Fedrico Fellini, Pablo Picasso, Robert Flaherty, Ernest Heminway and others.
