Charles Laughton Film Series: "Mutiny on the Bounty"

Wednesday, June 17, 2015 - 1:30pm to 4:00pm

Tortured but brilliant, Oscar-winner Charles Laughton (1899-1962) was one of the most recognizable and talented actors of his time. Since his portly figure and decidedly unhandsome face meant that leading-man roles were not open to him, Laughton carved a career out of playing a variety of monsters and misfits in films like "The Private Life of Henry VIII" and "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." Through Wednesday, July 15, at 1:30 pm, join Oak Park film historian Doug Deuchler on Wednesday afternoons to screen and discuss some of Charles Laughton's most unforgettable films.

The Lives They Lived: "Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman"

Tuesday, July 21, 2015 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm

In "Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman," Pulitzer Prize-winner Robert Massie tells the story of Catherine II, a German princess from a minor noble family who became the empress of Russia and ruled for 34 years. To escape her unhappy marriage to Peter III, Catherine began to read. "She had been a bright child; her languages then were French and German, [and] she learned Russian," Massie says. "She began to read the great philosophers of the French Enlightenment. And in that way, she developed a philosophy of rule."
