SLAC continues “Art of Film" series


SHELL LAKE - Shell Lake Arts Center will continue their The Art of Film series on Saturday, Jan. 11, with “The Social Network,” a film from 2010. The showing will be hosted by Justin Peck at 7 p.m. at the Arts Center's Erika Quam Memorial Theater. The film is rated PG-13 and tells the story of Mark Zuckerberg, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius. “On a fall night in 2003, Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history, but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications.”
The seventh-annual Art of Film series continues the theme established in the last six seasons of showing critically acclaimed films from the U.S. and around the world. Films chosen demonstrate an array of techniques their makers use to create these works. The arts center is delighted to have Peck, a UW-Madison film studies graduate, as the host for the evening. Audience members are invited to remain after each film for a lively discussion.
The film presentation will begin at 7 p.m. in the Erika Quam Memorial Theater and will be projected on a 9-foot-by-16-foot screen. Snacks and beverages will be available. The theater is located at 605 First St. in Shell Lake, two blocks off Hwy. 63. Use the main guest entrance with the ramp for accessibility. Admission is by freewill donation, with a suggested donation of $7 a person.
