Schaumburg, IL (September 14, 2016) – The Schaumburg Prairie Center for the Arts Presents “Hollywood and World War II” Lecture October 9
The Prairie Center for the Arts will present “Hollywood and World War II” as a part of its Lecture Hall Series on Sunday, October 9, 2016 at 2:00 p.m.
During the World War II era, the movie industry was characterized by rapid, formulaic, almost factory-like mass production. When a particular innovation proved commercially successful, it was sure to be replicated in other movies in short order. In this Illinois Humanities Road Scholars program, lecturer Edward Finch explores the emergence of the combat film genre, its evolution up to the present, and what it can teach us about American cultural history.
Tickets for the Hollywood and World War II lecture are $10 and can be ordered online at www.prairiecenter.org or by calling 847-895-3600. The Prairie Center is located at 201 Schaumburg Ct., Schaumburg, IL.
