The theatre partners with the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center to present the Light and Noir Film Festival. The festival screens fine examples of Noir, comedy, and anti-Nazi films from the 1930s and 1940s. “Ninotchka” (from 1939) is shown and was directed by Ernst Lubitsch, starring the incomparable Greta Garbo as an icy Soviet official whose heart is melted by a handsome Frenchman. This humorous take on the philosophy of communism provides a different take on the Cold War. Post screening discussion is led by Ron Falzone of Columbia College.
