About the Course
This film series is free and open to the community. Seating begins each Monday night at 6:30pm, followed by the screening at 7pm. The Cinema and Religion course is built around 12 specific themes repeatedly found in our cultures cinematic narratives. Each week, the class examines a different film specifically selected as an outstanding artifact of that theme.
