ATHENS, Ohio (Sept. 24, 2004) -- The second Athena Fall 2004 Art Series kicked-off its season with two films, "Supersize Me" and "Coffee and Cigarettes."
The series has received a great response from theatergoers. Athena Manager Matt Fields, originator of the series with partner Marlin Hambrick, says he hopes to continue the series in the future.
"I think we have a strong lineup this quarter and hopefully (we) will this winter and spring."
Lorraine Wochna, a reference librarian at Alden Library, also works in collaboration with the university's film, theater and English departments. She credits the opening success to the large national publicity of "Supersize Me" and the numerous celebrity appearances in "Coffee and Cigarettes."
"I think it's very much oriented to a younger crowd. I think the students will like the Athena Art series," Wochna said.
"Saved!" is the next film scheduled to be shown as part of the series. It will be playing Saturday, Sept 25, at 4 p.m. and Wednesday, Sept. 29, at 7 p.m. Admission prices for Wednesday showings are $5.50 for adults and $3.50 for Saturday matinees, as well as children 12 and under and adults 60 and over.
