The Loop/Lake Shore Chapter invites you to a discussion of the film Being There, led by Professor Stuart Warner, Associate Professor of Philosophy

The Loop/Lake Shore Chapter invites you to a discussion of the film Being There,
led by Professor Stuart Warner, Associate Professor of Philosophy

***Plus, an Oscar ballot contest***

Being There appeared on the screen at the end of 1979. It featured an extraordinary cast, including Melvyn Douglas, who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, Peter Sellers, who received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor, and Shirley MacLaine. At its core, the movie is a philosophical fable, which contains a reflection about what it is to be human, and about how easy it is to confuse appearance and reality, especially when they concern political life. It is simultaneously hilarious and dark. No movie could be more timely to discuss around the time of the Academy Awards. The discussion will be led by Professor Stuart Warner (Philosophy), who teaches Philosophy in Film among other classes at Roosevelt.

Please note, during the lecture we will see excerpts from the film, but not the film in its entirety. The film is readily available on Amazon Instant Video (free to Prime members and $2.99 to others) and on Netflix DVD. If you haven’t seen Being There it is a must-see; if you have seen Being There, it is a must see again.

And since we’re getting so close to the Academy Awards ceremony, we’re also going to have an Oscar ballot contest. Those who attend the discussion will be eligible for some great prizes:

1st prize: $30 gift certificate to AMC Theaters
2nd prize: a copy of Arnie Bernstein’s Hollywood on Lake Michigan: 100 Years of Chicago & the Movies
3rd prize: a DVD copy of the deluxe edition of Being There

Details:

Roosevelt University
425 S. Wabash Ave., Chicago, IL
February 21st
6:00pm – 8:00pm
Admission: free

Please make your reservations, by February 18th, 2013 by clicking on the following link:

If you have any questions, feel free to email us at alum@roosevelt.edu.
