Acclaimed film director to help dedicate new IU Cinema|
January 27, 2011
Two-time Academy Award nominee Peter Bogdanovich will join a host of campus and community officials -- including IU President Michael McRobbie, IU Bloomington Provost and Executive Vice President Karen Hanson and City of Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan -- in heralding the arrival of the new, nearly 260-seat IU Cinema, one of only about 10 THX-certified facilities on college campuses anywhere in the nation.
During the ceremony, McRobbie will present Bogdanovich, whose professional papers and film collection (consisting of more than 100,000 items) are housed near the new cinema at the IU Lilly Library, with an honorary degree recognizing his achievements as a film director and for his major contributions to the scholarship of film.
