Spacing Out: Film Travels in Outer Space

July 19 - August 9, 2016
Classes meet each Tuesday at 7:00pm
Tuition: $40 Members ($60 Non-Members)

The public has always been fascinated by the mystery and wonder of outer space. That fascination extends to the film industry, too. In our powerful imaginations, movies about outer space allow us to experience some of what we’ve conjured up in our minds. We now have a chance to visit some of those great early films, and also more recent ones, to see how they have influenced today’s movie industry, especially the sci-fi genre*.

Led by Fall Film Studies Instructor Diane Thelen.

Inspired by the summer exhibition Out of this World: The Art and Artists of NASA (June 25-September 25, 2016)

$50 Members-Only Advance Registration Discount until August 31 or while seats remain

Arrivals & Departures: Tales of Immigrant Journeys
October 4 - November 8, 2016
Classes meet each Tuesday (EXCEPT Oct. 11) at 1:30 or 7:00pm

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.

In this series of fall films, we present a mix of cinematic genres, including romantic comedy, poignant stories of childhood friendships, and transformative true-life experiences that address the topic of migrant journeys from different corners of the world. These films examine who these people are, why they leave their homes, and the many extraordinary and touching challenges they face. Come explore with us the joys, hurdles, and eventual triumphs that are depicted in these five extraordinary and powerful films*.

* Led by Fall Film Studies Instructor Diane Thelen.

Passages: Films About Finding Our Life Rhythms
November 15 – December 13, 2016
Classes meet each Tuesday at 1:30 or 7pm
(Includes an additional class Thursday, December 1)

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.

Come join us as we explore how the passage from childhood into adulthood can be viewed in terms of life rhythms. Sometimes we are influenced by the adults around us, and we imitate their life rhythms. Then, later, other people in our world can influence our behavior and, as a result, our rhythms may be altered. We all, eventually, must find a rhythm that works for us, as throughout the course of our lives, we adapt to our surroundings to find the right balance. The various phases of our lives, including childhood and young adulthood, are passages for us. Whether you are a 14-year-old sailor from Holland or an American “punk rocker,” it’s all about the journey*.
