Come check-out Tron: Legacy on the big screen as we continue an exploration of "narrative extension"; that is, taking the story in the movie and expanding upon it in some way (as would be done in creating a sequel, prequel, etc.). Yes, there's a small homework assignment with this one, but it's easy and fun!
Saturday August 22nd @ 8:00 pm
Recently claimed as the best of the three versions of King Kong, this 1976 classic is worth another look. No homework here, just a short introduction covering the merits of this version and, for the hardcore film aficionado who has what it takes to stay up late, a post-viewing discussion.
Currently seeking co-instructors/facilitators to help start and implement the following courses. If you have certain experience/expertise with cannabis, graphic art and drawing, stage play creation/direction, movie making/editing, etc., give a call here and let's explore creating a course together.
The following courses are in the works as Manitou Movie School continues to grow and gain support.
And for folks who still enjoy a good story read out-loud, join us for this special story-time gathering...
