The Department of Continuing Education at Penn State Wilkes-Barre and co-sponsor The Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce proudly announces the spring personal enrichment film & discussion series schedule. Penn State Wilkes-Barre is partnering with R/C Wilkes-Barre Movies 14 in Downtown Wilkes-Barre to host a film and discussion series celebrating Penn Staters in Film: National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Agnes of God, The Final Countdown, Star Trek: Nemesis, and Casablanca.
For our popular public and student film series, we proudly present Penn Staters who have made their mark in the film industry. Join us on these special Thursday evenings this spring and help celebrate Penn State Wilkes-Barre's 100th Anniversary!
All film screenings will be held at R/C Wilkes-Barre Movies 14 in Downtown Wilkes-Barre on Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. beginning March 24th and running through April 21st. Pre-film lecture notes and stimulating post-film discussion will accompany each screening in the series.
This film series is not only opened to the public, but to educators as well. The Film Series is offered as a 1-credit course (approved for 30 Act 48 hours) and a noncredit course. The university is not offering Act 48 hours for the noncredit course; however, the program may be eligible for Act 48 hours pending the approval of your school district or intermediate unit. The process for each school district or intermediate unit may vary, so you may want to check with your district or unit prior to registering for the program.
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.
