Join us for a screening of “War of the Worlds” (2005 version) in the ATC auditorium, tonight, Monday, October 30, from 6:30-9:00 p.m. Admission to the movie is free and we’ll have complimentary refreshments. What’s unique about this showing is that we’ll have a side-bar screen displaying fun facts, trivia, and comments from our viewers. The movie is PG-13; so families are welcome to attend.
This movie is the first of several events planned by the Campus Common Reading Committee during the 2017-18 academic year that relate to Fighting Fake News. See the Fake News Subject Guide for more information!
