Bay Film Series Announces Winter 2019 Schedule
Our RACE TO THE OSCARS continues! The Bay Film Series at Bay College once again celebrates the art of film-making, showing the best in international, documentary, independent cinema. This year’s roster is filled with award-winning, critically-acclaimed, audience-approved movies. The Academy of Motion Pictures will announce their nominations on January 22nd.
On Thursday, January 24th, we will begin with Beautiful Boy. The screenplay is based upon the best-selling memoirs of the Sheffs, which chronicle the son’s spiraling battle with drug addiction. Timothee Chalamet is leading the cast with nominations for Best Supporting Actor for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, BAFTAs, and Golden Globes. Kevin Maher from the UKs Times says, “Yet Beautiful Boy is that rare cinematic artifact, a film that purports to be about one thing (in this case, addiction), but when you scrape away the surface dazzle, is really about everything.”
All Film Series movies are shown in Bay College’s Besse Center Theater at 7 p.m. in Escanaba. Tickets are $5 and are available at the box office or can be purchased online. For more information, go to the Bay College website (www.baycollege.edu) and click On Campus, then Events and the Movies. Students with valid ID can get a reduced admission charge of $2.
