Next Tuesday brings the return of our adult programming series, Long Overdue. We will screen the film Death by Design, by filmmaker Sue Williams.
Tuesday, January 7th, 7 pm in the Kozak Community Room
Please arrive early for best seating.
Consumers love – and live on – their smartphones, tablets and
laptops. A cascade of new devices pours endlessly into the market, promising even better communication, non-stop entertainment and instant information. The numbers are staggering. By 2020, four billion people will have a personal computer. Five billion will own a mobile phone.
But this revolution has a dark side, hidden from most consumers. In an investigation that spans the globe, filmmaker Sue Williams
investigates the underbelly of the electronics industry and reveals how even the smallest devices have deadly environmental and health costs. From the intensely secretive factories in China, to a ravaged New York community and the high tech corridors of Silicon Valley, the film tells a story of environmental degradation, of health tragedies, and the fast approaching tipping point between consumerism and sustainability.
Due to Vermillion School District schedule changes, there will no longer be an early-out day for students tomorrow, Thursday, January 26th, and the movie has been cancelled.
Tomorrow, December 22nd, we will screen The Polar Express at 12:30, accompanied by pizza and hot chocolate! This will follow children’s activities planned at the Armory that morning. Come join us:)
The holidays are in full-swing! Get in the spirit with classics like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Alive Inside highlights a ground-breaking wellness program called ‘Music & Memory’, developed by social worker Dan Cohen. Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett chronicles the amazing results from engaging with dementia patients, and others, through the use of music. The film offers illuminating interviews with experts including renowned neurologist and best-selling author Oliver Sacks and musician Bobby McFerrin, among others.
