[Currentcse] More films and fun!

Hi!  There are two films listed here that are outstanding and that address issues relevant to our field. The first new one is "Loving" that is the (based-on) true story of the legal case that challenged miscegenation laws (illegal to marry across "races") based on the love between a White man and African American woman. There may still be miscegenation laws on the books of a few states--but these laws were alive on the books in most all states until relatively recently.

The second film is "Moonlight" which I've seen and it is lovely. The story of a young Black man growing up and working to find his identity. (I won't say more [😉] )

Get a group together to go and then talk about the films over coffee/tea/beer afterwards!  Go CSE!  Change the world!

new this week!

From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown.

"There are few movies that speak to the American moment as movingly - and with as much idealism - as Jeff Nichols's 'Loving,' which revisits the era when blacks and whites were so profoundly segregated in this country that they couldn't always wed."- Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Plays daily at 5:15pm, 7:40pm, and 9:40pm with Saturday/Sunday matinees at 2:45pm.

Closed Captioning and Audio Description are available for this film.
All screenings on Monday will have Open Captioning.



An unconventional love story of an aspiring actress, her determined driver, and the eccentric billionaire who they work for. Directed by Warren Beatty.

"...an often hysterical character comedy about a fading prince of the screen and sky."- Blake Goble, Consequence of Sound

Plays daily at 5:05pm, 7:05pm*, and 9:35pm** with a Sunday matinee at 2:35pm.

*No 7:05pm show Saturday 12/3 or Thursday 12/8

Closed Captioning and Audio Description are available for this film.

A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami.

"In its quietly radical grace, it's a cultural watershed - a work that dismantles all the ways our media view young black men and puts in their place a series of intimate truths. You walk out feeling dazed, more whole, a little cleaner."- Ty Burr, Boston Globe

Plays daily at 4:55pm, 7:30pm, and 10:00pm with Saturday/Sunday matinees at 2:55pm.

Closed Captioning and Audio Description are available for this film.
