Every Tuesday, NAU College of Arts and Letters hosts a free film viewing in Cline Library Auditorium. Paul Donnelly, Professor of Religious Studies says, “films are made to be seen in theatres with audience reactions bouncing around from audience member to audience member.”
Julia Garringer, Cartoon Curator, believes that people gain from watching films in a theatre setting and that it opens up thoughtful discussion.
Before each film, a background is given on the film and the people who made it. After the film, an open discussion is held where people can voice their opinions about the movie. Hunter McMillan, Intern believes, The Cline library film discussions give students better opportunities to talk about the film rather than silently thinking about it at home.
