The author of the epic The New Biographical Dictionary of Film comes to Seattle with his brand-new The Big Screen, in a conversation with Robert Horton of KUOW and The Herald of Everett.

Thomson's latest tells not just stories of films, but the story of film: its rise and spread, its remarkable influence in the war years, and its long decline to a form that no longer lays claim to our lives the way it once did. Horton, affable host and critic himself, will help illuminate the big-picture story of The Seventh Art, as understood by one of its foremost authorities.

Presented by Town Hall with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.



There are no tickets available.
