Earth Day Movie Screenings

April 12, 2010

Earth Day 40th Anniversary ImageIn celebration of Earth Day’s 40th anniversary, join us for lunch time showings of the Peabody Award-winning documentary King Corn and its newly released sequel, Big River!

‘Follow best friends from college who investigate how food is grown and processed in the United States and the environmental impacts of the process.  What you see may surprise you!’

Bring your lunch and enjoy it with some complimentary Sun Chips®.   Frito Lay® is showing their commitment to the environment by packaging their Sun Chips® products in compostable bags!   Here is more about that – http://sunchips.com/healthier_planet.shtml?s=content_compostable_packaging    And of course there will be pop corn.

**AND** If you attend one of these events, you will be eligible to win an HP iPAQ 211 Enterprise Handheld!  This item is valued at over $300!!  The winner will be announced at the April 22nd showing at the Grad Center.    iPAQ info -http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hp-Ipaq-211-Enterprise-Handheld/8154790
