McKittrick on the Birth of Cinema and Art/Commerce

On April 4 and 5, Casey McKittrick delivered two 90-minute invited lectures to Western's 300+ undergraduate seminar Direct Encounter With the Arts.  His talk was titled "The Birth of Cinema and the Persistent Dialogue of Art and Commerce."  Following the preliminary lectures, he introduced a one-time screening of the 2008 Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire at the State Theatre on Thursday night at 7:00 to the seminar students and other interested University faculty and students.
