Film Club at IIT Madras was begun in November of the year 1961 because of the endeavors of Mr. Pritam Lal Kapur (BT 1960-65). Motion pictures are anticipated onto a screen (white washed divider) around 50 feet wide and 24 feet tall from a projector room at a separation of 180 feet from the screen in Open Air Theater (OAT). Encompass sound framework with DTS is utilized for sound. Films are appeared in advanced organization utilizing 2K Digital Projection Facility (D-Cinema - 17000 lumens) obtained with commitments from the accompanying graduated class: Niranjan Nilakantan (B.Tech-CS, graduated in 1996), Kalpathi Suresh (B.Tech-EE, graduated in 1986) and the Batch of 1975.

Normal films are screened in OAT each saturday at 8:00PM (standard calendar) with an interim of 8-10 mins about most of the way into the motion picture. A provisional calendar of motion pictures is reported to the grounds group by an email in the start of the month. In view of the accessibility, film for a specific saturday is affirmed on Thursday/Friday of that week. In a year, around 50 normal motion pictures are screened by the Film Club (half of them in english and staying half in Hindi, Tamil and other territorial dialects) and another 6-10 motion pictures are screened by different affiliations/associations on campus(typically on Fridays). Authorization to demonstrate the films is acquired from nearby wholesalers of the particular motion pictures and advanced substance is gotten from Real Image Media Technologies.

Unless OAT is overflowed, OAT motion pictures are not crossed out because of downpours. Viewing a film in OAT while it is sprinkling has its own particular charms.
