The Easton Summer Cinema film series at Lafayette is underway.

Instead of movie streaming from your couch, join members of the Easton and Lafayette community Tuesdays at 7 p.m. to enjoy visual storytelling together. The theater is located at Buck Hall on Lafayette’s Williams Arts Campus, 219 N. Third Street.

Admission is free and open to the public. The series is sponsored by the Village on College Hill, the film and media studies program at Lafayette, and President Alison Byerly’s office.

Josh Miller, professor of government and law and also a member of the Village of College Hill, was instrumental in organizing the series.

“We picked a good variety of films—some challenging, some fun and light, all interesting,” Miller says. “A guest speaker is invited to each event to lead a conversation with the audience about themes in each film. It’s a way to encourage community and bring people together in a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility.”

Next week’s movie, July 2, will be Winter’s Bone (2010). “Her family home in danger of being repossessed after her drug-dealing dad skips bail and disappears. Ozark teen Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence) breaks the local code of conduct by confronting her kin about their conspiracy of silence.”

The schedule:
June 18: Singin’ in the Rain
June 25: They Shall Not Grow Old
July 2: Winter’s Bone (R rated)
July 9: Third Man
July 16: Children of Heaven
July 23: Shoplifters (R rated)
July 30: Moonlight (R rated)
Aug. 6: 42nd Street

    Please note that the dates above for “Children of Heaven”and “The Third Man” are incorrect. The correct dates are July 9 for “Children of Heaven” and July 16 for “Third Man.”
