Penn State Abington throws a double-header Cultural Arts weekend

The 2010 World Series is over; the Giants hold the title. No more baseball until next spring. But you can still catch a double-header--culturally speaking, that is -- at Penn State Abington. The arts-filled weekend begins Nov. 12 with the Friday Night Film Series showing of "Broken Embraces," and continues on Sunday with "Spite Marriage," a classic silent film with organ accompaniment.

Moylan C. Mills, professor emeritus of integrative arts, will moderate the screening of "Broken Embraces," the 2009 melodrama starring Penelope Cruz. The film begins at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12, in 112 Woodland Building. Admission is $5, payable at the door.

Then at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 14, in Sutherland Auditorium, the weekend of cultural arts excitement continues when the silent film "Spite Marriage" -- with organ accompaniment -- hits the screen. This film, filled with memorable vintage footage, was Buster Keeton's final silent feature. Join Mills for laughs and discussion while enjoying the organ accompaniment by Wayne C. Zimmerman. Admission is free.

Please note that both programs are free to faculty, staff and students with a current Penn State ID. Easy parking is available. For information and a complete listing of events for the Abington Cultural Arts Series, call 215-881-7800 or visit online.
