Film series highlights local actors
A little bit of Hollywood comes to the Wilkes-Barre campus, as west coast movie stars that live in Northeastern Pennsylvania will be highlighted at a University film series. The Film, Food and Fun Facts concept was developed by Bill Bachman, an instructor in the Penn State Communication Arts and Sciences department. According to Bachman, “By attending the series, you can find out who from Northeast PA has been involved in some of Hollywood’s greatest films. It’s a real opportunity to meet local big-screen actors.”
The educational film series will kick off at 6:30PM with Jack Steblinski on Thursday, September 27th in lecture hall Science Center 101. A Forty Fort native who now lives in Mountaintop, Steblinski has starred along side Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis in The Last of the Mohicans. He also has been involved with some impressive behind-the-scenes work as a Prop Master in movies such as Glory, Gettysburg, Taking Liberty, and One Man’s Hero. The local actor will be on hand to open the film series with artifacts from The Last of the Mohicans. Plus, Steblinski will host a discussion with the public, students, and faculty immediately following the screening of the movie. Cost of the program is $12.00 per person, $8.00 with valid college ID. Refreshments will be served.
