Image result for To be funny: 100 Years of Buster Keaton

Join us for a screening of the documentary To Be Funny: 100 Years of Buster Keaton by local filmmakers Gavin Rosenberg and Jessica Roseboom.  Deemed one of the finest physical comedians to ever grace the screen, Buster Keaton can still pratfall his way into the hearts of millions, 100 years after his first appearance on film. “To Be Funny” follows cinephiles, musicians, historians, and members of the International Buster Keaton Society across the US, as they celebrate the revered silent film comedian. This film offers a glimpse into annual Keaton celebrations and tributes, a pilgrimage to Cottage Grove, where Keaton filmed The General, and features live performances of original scores for some of Keaton’s most beloved films.  A short Q & A and discussion by the filmmakers will follow the screening.  This DVD is not rated, but parental guidance is suggested. 

Registration required for all movies.

Songs of the American Woman
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

Celebrate Women's History Month!

We are pleased to welcome back Rick Spencer and Dawn Indermuehle fo another historic music program!  From Seneca Falls to the 19th Amendment: Songs of the American Woman Suffrage Movement chronicles the important and hard-fought struggle toward gender equality.  Music was one of the significant tools used in the crusade for a woman's right to vote.  Songs were composed to advance (and to oppose) the agenda that culminated in the 1919 ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.  This program presents some of the most engaging and interesting songs of the movement, with historical commentary, in commemoration of the approaching centennial of a woman's right to vote.
