In the newest EPPC Summer Movie Series, co-sponsored by the Hudson Institute and presented by EPPC Resident Scholar James Bowman, we’re leaving this life entirely to see how the movies have thought about the next one—a subject that for seventy years they have found surprisingly congenial and often treated with moving sensitivity.
The series will take place on successive Tuesday evenings between June 28, 2011 andJuly 26, 2011. All movies begin at 5:30 and will be followed by a discussion.
Pizza, popcorn, candy, and drinks will be provided.
