In light of the most recent scandal of the sexual abuse of nuns in the Roman Catholic Church, we have dedicated this month’s screening to films that take a look into this ancient religion and its relic practices.
La Reine Margot (1994) is based on the historical novel written by Alexandre Dumas, pere in 1845. The film tells the story of Margot (Isabelle Adjani), the daughter of the devoted catholic Catherine de Medici who reluctantly married the Huguenot King Henri of Navarre to preserve the peace between the two religious fractions.
Our arts film program will provide many opportunities throughout the year to view classic and contemporary films from around the world. Through screenings, scholarly notes, and local filmmaker discussions, the program encourages viewers to learn more about the history of the cinema, the role of art in films, and how films reflect society.
Programs are free of charge, but seating is on a first-come, first-seated basis. Doors open approximately 30 minutes before each show. Arrive early to purchase refreshments or snacks. Programs are subject to change.
