Film & Discussion Series

Fall 2015 Theme: Northeast Pennsylvania in Hollywood

Actors, writers, set designers….They all came from Northeast PA in the fall Movie Series from Penn State Wilkes-Barre.  Do you know who wrote the screen version of The Adventures of Robin Hood?  Which actor in The Best Man is from the Back Mountain? Who did the set design for Small Time Crooks?  What town has a starring role in Miracle of the Bells?  Those questions were answered in this series when Penn State Wilkes-Barre continued its second decade of this popular film series!

Check back in early spring 2016 for the announcement of our next movies series. For program-related questions or to be added to our mailing list, call 570-675-9253 or email wbce@outreach.psu.edu
