Summer Film Series: Network

When: Tue., July 17, 6:30 p.m. 2012

Yeah, we know: You're mad as hell, and you're not gonna take it anymore, just like everyone else who's borrowed the famous Network sound bite as a convenient way to convey that they're fed up with, you know, whatever. Written by Paddy Chayefsky and directed by Sidney Lumet, the 1976 film was an influential and, in some ways, prescient take on the ratings-driven media's abdication of actual journalism. As such, it's a good fit for this free summer series of films about media culture, complete with professorial analysis and discussion. See it at 6:30 p.m. in the screening room of CC's Cornerstone Arts Center (825 N. Cascade Ave., coloradocollege.edu). — Bill Forman
