February 11 Screening: Pride and Prejudice (2005) PG; 129 min
Make sure you are prepared to see the upcoming Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie by watching the movie based on the source material. Joe Wright's interpretation of Jane Austen's seminal novel is a fan favorite and a strong piece of cinema in it's own right. Austen diehards and people who just want some context to see the next hot zombie movie are both welcome to enjoy this special Film Club presentation.

Alfonso Cuarón's Children of Men is a post-apocalyptic masterpiece where humans have lost the ability to have children.
