Reel to Real Classics is a group that promotes a dialogue on variety of social, cultural, and historical topics through the examination of classic film. It is coordinated by Lilly Ramin, Sociology Librarian (Public Services Division, Willis Library) and Steven Guerrero, Media Arts Librarian (Special Libraries Division, Media Library). We will often promote and use the in-house UNT Media Library collection. 


  • Films will often be considered “American films” within the range of the 1930s-1950s
  • Meetings with screenings will be subject to Public Performance Rights (PPR). See Films page for ideas.
  • Themes of the films may touch of topics of a sensitive nature, so we ask you be respectful of fellow group members and follow discussion guidelines.
  • You do not be an expert in film! We want to share our fascination with classic film and discuss in it relation to today. We  want to provide some programming for students as well. We think classic films can be fun as well as historically significant.
  • Films or resources may be on course reserve for in-house viewing & check out (for home viewing) when an extra copy is available.
