Top Five Years For Movies: Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2021 – 7:30 pm ET

At best, it captures the zeitgeist of a time period through a variety of genres, and by showcasing the talents of a number of terrific stars and directors.

You Can’t Show That!: Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2022 – 7:30 pm ET

In 1922, The Motion Picture Producers and Distributors Of America was created by studio executives to stave off government censorship and ensure the wholesomeness of Hollywood films. It later morphed into the MPAA ratings we have today, and is now known as the MPA. How did we go from a couple not being allowed to share a bed to steamy sex scenes? This hour-long presentation explores how and why the MPA has evolved to where it is today, and what else it does besides film ratings.
