5th Season of Shell Lake Arts Center’s “The Art of Film” Series to Conclude Saturday
Monday, February 19, 2018 | Submitted
The Shell Lake Arts Center’s Fifth Season of “The Art of Film” Series will conclude on Saturday, February 24th at 7:00 PM with a showing of "Hail, Caesar!" (2016) hosted by University of Wisconsin-Madison Film Studies graduate Justin Peck. The film is a sparkling comedy from the Coen Brothers depicting a day in the life of a fixer as he works to keep the studio's stars out of trouble. Featuring spot-on homages to studio filmmaking, gorgeous cinematography, wonderfully memorable characters played by a star-studded cast, and the Coens' trademark oddball sensibilities. The film is rated PG-13 for some suggestive content and smoking.
The Fifth Annual “The Art of Film” Series has continued the theme established in the last four seasons of showing critically acclaimed films from the U.S. and around the world. Films chosen demonstrate an array of techniques their makers use to create these works. Audience members are treated to a short informational presentation about the film before it is shown and are invited to remain after each film for a lively discussion.
Films are projected on a 9’ X 16’ screen in the Center’s cafeteria/conference room and there is plenty of seating. Audience members are also welcome to bring their own comfortable, folding chairs if they prefer. Popcorn, snacks, and beverages will be available. The Arts Center is located at 802 First Street in Shell Lake two blocks off Highway 63. The south doors that face First Street are the entry doors for the Film Series. Admission is by free will donation with a suggested donation of $7 a person. A full list of show dates and film titles from the 5th season of “The Art of Film” Series is available by visiting www.shelllakeartscenter.org.
