CMC Film Series Continues: Monsters and Monstrosity
In keeping with the spirits of the season, the CMC Film Series continues this Friday with its Monsters and Monstrouisty theme. This film series will explore how monstrosity has been interpreted in films from a variety of times and cultures.
The word monster comes from the Latin monstrum: “divine omen, portent, or sign.” Unusual humans or animals were once considered warnings of impending evil or disaster. Grab some friends and the popcorm and head to the Climax Center, KW Room Fridays at 6 p.m. October 14, 21, and 28. Cost: $10 for all films.
Then be sure to mark the calendar for the CMC Film Series 2: The Immigrant Experience: An International Perspective.

The series plays Fridays at 6 p.m. in Climax Molybdenum Center, KW Room November 4, 11, 18, December 2, 9, and 16. Cost: $10 for all films.
