Entertainment Note

Thought some of y'all might be interested:


On Thursday (5/1) the popular GenWex series for young patrons continues with GenWex: Reel Politics, an evening of politically-minded conversation with two of Columbus' leading young political figures: Mike Brown, press secretary for Mayor Michael Coleman and Jim Coleman from the environmental group Ohio's Tomorrow. A screening of Sidney Lumet's Network will follow their remarks. The conversation is free, while the screening is ticketed and costs $7 general public and $5 Wexner Center members, students, and senior citizens.

The reception/conversation part starts at 5:30, with a cash bar. Movie starts at 7. I'm not sure how they define their "young patron" target demographic, but given the discounted tickets for senior citizens, I'm assuming the definition isn't very narrow. Full details here.

BTW, if you are unfamiliar, Network is a great movie about media best known for the exhortation to yell "I'm mad as Hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!"
