Grab some popcorn and discover how film and psychology go together like Mike and Ike.


It's back! Grab some popcorn and discover how film and psychology go together like Mike and Ike. It is no accident that the movies came of age alongside the discipline of psychology. Both examined the human experience in new and innovative ways, inventing vocabularies and techniques that continue to shape our culture and our very perceptions of ourselves. We will watch portions of four movies in class and explore how psychology can inform our film watching, and how the art of film can teach us about human nature.

This year, we are partnering with 14 Pews to offer screenings of the films, and a unique space in which to discuss what the films evoke in us.  If you are not able to attend the screenings, we recommend that you watch the films in advance of each week's conversation.  Weekly drop-in registrations ($35 for both members and non-members) will be available IN-PERSON ONLY at the screening, and are not available online.
