You can't stream this on Netflix or Hulu, so don't miss seeing “Blood Simple” on the big screen! Released in 1985, it was the Coen Brothers' first feature film. It has been described as a “Southern Gothic Film Noir.” Following the screening, Harry Kloman, a long-time film critic in the Pittsburgh area, will discuss how it fits the noir genre and how it deviates from it, the impressive body of work the Coens have produced in 30 years, and some of the cultural reactions to their work.
Enjoy sweets in the lobby after the film and the discussion.

Dinner at Joe Mama's
The Newberry Consort is the longest running and most successful early music ensemble in Chicago and they are so fine that they are in residence at Northwestern University. This music tells the story of Alfonso X—a twelfth-century King of Spain—who while ill, prayed to the Virgin Mary that he might survive. After making a full recovery, he commissioned songs recounting the Virgin’s miracles and singing her praises. Set to compelling melodies, the story comes to life with a multi-media production that includes a rear projection of lavish images.
Dinner at Joe Mama's before the concert.
