film chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting
rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to
Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the
Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the
civil rights movement. Director Ava DuVernay's Selma tells the
real story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his brothers and sisters in the movement
prompted change that forever altered history. Click here
for the official website.
A Q&A with director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo will take place immediately following the film.Please RSVP with your name and membership number to: email@example.com Members Film Series Sponsor:

Century 12 Evanston/CineArts 6, 1715 Maple Ave., Evanston, IL Into the Woods is a modern twist on the
beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few

and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic
tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla
Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel
(MacKenzie Mauzy) - all tied together by an original story involving a
baker and his wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a
family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a
curse on them. Click here
