Bryan Cultural Series

Three films and three genres as the Bryan Cultural Film Series brings three classic movies to the big screen. TheĀ Philadelphia Story, theĀ Red ShoesĀ and theĀ Magnificent SevenĀ are three movies that should be in every movie lover’s history of great movies.

Taking a deep dive into why the three movies in this year’s Film Series are classics, Dr. Chris Palestrant, Professor of Music Composition at ECSU, will offer his popularĀ “peek behind the curtain” look at how the movies were made and some little known titillating tidbits.

Dr. Palestrant will Peek Behind the Curtain at 4:00 p.m. Movies will be screened at 4:30.

The Movies:

Philadelphia Story

A powerful and ultimately tragic story of love and betrayal, theĀ Red ShoesĀ is considered one of the best film’s ever produced by British movie industry.
