Fall Film & Discussion Series Focuses On 2012: The End?

The Department of Continuing Education at Penn State Wilkes-Barre and co-sponsor The Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce proudly announce the fall personal enrichment film & discussion series. Penn State Wilkes-Barre is partnering with R/C Wilkes-Barre Movies 14 in Downtown Wilkes-Barre to host a film and discussion series exploring the theories of the world ending in 2012: Dr. Strangelove, Dirt! The Movie, Soylent Green, Where Have All The People Gone?, and When Worlds Collide. A variety of guest speakers from across the Penn State system will be featured each week.

All film screening will be held at R/C Wilkes-Barre Movies 14 in Downtown Wilkes-Barre on Thursday evenings at 7pm beginning October 4th and running through November 1st. Pre-film lecture notes and stimulating post-film discussion will accompany each screening in the series.

Continuing Education is pleased to have Bill Bachman as the instructor for the fall movie series. Bill has taught a variety of communications course offerings on the Wilkes-Barre campus since 1986. He currently teaches basic public speaking, public speech writing, mass media and society, propaganda and persuasion, and media affects. The film series started as a 1-credit academic course on the Penn State Wilkes-Barre campus by Bachman 10 years ago.
