Ace in the Hole: Journalism Film Discussion Series Continues!

Journalism film series looks at the dark side of reporting Ace in the Hole’ examines fake news, ethics, and sensationalism, at the Latchis Theater, Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 4 pm.

 The history of journalism hasn’t always been honorable. It is littered with the stories of scoundrels willing to do anything for a story — anything at all.

Perhaps the best portrayal of an amoral, anything-for-a-scoop reporter is found in the filmic one-two punch that is Billy Wilder’s 1951 Ace in the Hole, starring Kirk Douglas.

 The Journalism Film Festival will show this witty yet brutal film at the Latchis Theatre on Sunday, Nov. 19, at 4 p.m. Admission is free, and donations are welcome.

Mole Hill Theatre presents contemporary bluegrass and folk music quartet The Stockwell Brothers Band on Friday, November 17 at 7:30 pm.

Bruce, Barry, Alan and Kelly Stockwell's music spans traditional and progressive styles, but their trademark acoustic sound features new singer/songwriter material recast with banjo, alternative rhythms and three-part harmonies. They cover straight ahead bluegrass songs, finger picked acoustic guitar ballads, full tilt breakdowns and traditional mandolin tunes mixed in with more unusual fare - Americana melodies riding world beat grooves and Celtic, jazzy, even neo-classical instrumentals.
