LONDON’S NATIONAL THEATRE IN HD: ALL ABOUT EVE
April 11th, Thursday, 7PM

Gillian Anderson (X-Files, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Downton Abbey) lead in All About Eve, broadcast to cinemas from the West End in London. All About Eve tells the story of theatre legend Margo Channing. While the spotlight has always been hers, her biggest fan, Eve, has suddenly entered the picture. Eve is young and beautiful, but…you all know about Eve…don’t you…? This new production from one of the world’s most innovate theatre directors, Ivo van Hoeve (Network, NT Live: A View from the Bridge) lifts the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition and ultimately asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old. $10 - 17.

IMMIGRATION: WHY AND HOW IT WORKS
April 13th, Saturday, 4PM

Immigration is at the forefront of our national news, and Chris George, Executive Director of IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services) is coming to speak about the United States’ longstanding security screening process. Dating far back, the US has a very robust screening process to vet immigrants. As a nation, we have had a long history of admitting people from around the world who are fleeing violence, instability, personal and community danger, economic deprivation and starvation. George will deliver an interactive presentation of the US refugee resettlement program, following a refugee family that decided to flee Syria and their journey through the vetting process and eventual resettling in Connecticut.
