Behind the Scenes: A Movie Club

Meets the second and fourth Mondays at 1:00 PM over Zoom. Event Details & Zoom link.

Cinema is an art form just as rich in expression as literature.

Join Brandon for a fun discussion of a variety of films from John Wayne to Shirley Temple as we look “behind the scenes” of each movie to unpack their historical significance, stylistic choices, and meanings.  

You may laugh, you may cry, but you’ll certainly be affected. They don’t call ’em moving pictures for nothing!

Extra! Extra! The world can be a confusing and complex place. Let’s try to make sense of it together, one byline at a time. Each month, we’ll discuss a selected topic by reading a handful of writings from different magazines.   

New topic each meeting! All magazines will be free to access online and through Flipster.
