  • The public is invited to view new and classic films during Missouri University of Science and Technology’s 2014 Free Fall Film Festival.
    The first film in the series will be the 2013 comedy-drama “Her.” This movie will be shown Tuesday, Sept. 2.
    The films, which are free and open to the public, will be shown at 7 p.m. Tuesdays in Leach Theatre in Missouri S&T’s Castleman Hall, located at 10th and Main streets in Rolla, with one exception — the film, “All is Lost,” will be screened Sept. 30 in Room 104 of the Physics Building at S&T.
    “This semester's film festival is dedicated to optimism,” said Max Tohline, lecturer of art and film at Missouri S&T. “It's packed with films about art making, storytelling, falling in love, surviving against the odds, standing up and fighting back and growing up.”
