(formerly Dinner & A Movie)
Each quarter, we view and discuss the social issues raised in a film over a light dinner. Open to any DU affiliate, this FREE series engages participants in dialogue about pop culture and diversity/social justice issues.
In the past, we have discussed films including:
The Pursuit of Happyness, The Blind Side, X-Men 3: The Last Stand, The Devil Wears Prada, Slumdog Millionaire, Reign Over Me, Gran Torino, Ma Vie En Rose, Easy A, She's the Man, The Milagro Beanfield War, Brother Outsider: The Bayard Rustin Story, Mosquito y Mari,
Hairspray, and Entre Nos.
For Winter 2015, we worked with the Center for Judaic Studies and faculty member Zoe Tobier to screen and discuss Beginners , in which a young man (Ewan McGregor) learns that his father (Christopher Plummer) has terminal cancer and a young male lover. Watch for Spring 2015.
A light dinner is available from 5.30pm, with the movie beginning at 6pm sharp. Discussion begins as soon as movie is done.
Because seating is limited and food must be pre-ordered, advance RSVP is required.
On-campus location details will be provided to registrants only; we are not able to accommodate drop-ins. (The online system will stop accepting registrations when capacity has been reached; in that case, please see our homepage for other upcoming events.)
NOTE: You must be present for the entire program (start of movie plus discussion) to participate. (Just eating and/or just watching the film with us is an entertaining evening, but is not the intended educational engagement. DUPB provides weekly movies for the campus' enjoyment.)
