The Door Community Auditorium (DCA) will offer its weekly Saturday morning St. Norbert College Distinguished Lecture Series in January and February. This year lectures will be held on South African student activism (Jan. 14), cultural identities (Jan. 28), Cuban art and culture (Feb. 11), the limits of moral progress (Feb. 25), and the gender balance in world politics (March 4). This year, lectures will begin at 10 am. Lectures are free to the public; freewill donations are encouraged.
DCA will also hold film screenings as part of its Movies at the Door series. The series will feature two films about the music that came to DCA in 2016: Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings (Jan. 13; the evening will also feature a ukulele jam and a winter luau) and Genghis Blues (Jan. 27; about Tuvan throat singing). The weekend of Fish Creek Winter Games, DCA will screen Graveyard of the Great Lakes (Feb. 3).
For the first time this year, DCA will also offer two family-friendly films at kid-friendly screening times. According to DCA Executive Director Cari Lewis, “Last year two fourth grade students, Chloe Alexander and Hannah Lopez, wrote persuasive essays for a class project making a case for there to be Family Movie Nights at DCA. So for 2017, we’ve included two movies suggested by these young ladies: Minions [Feb. 10] and Finding Dory [March 3]. We also moved the start-time up to 6:30 for these nights.”
The other films will begin at 7 pm. All film screenings are free to the public; freewill donations are encouraged.
