Senior College World Series

The World Series is a monthly showing of recent award-winning documentary films at the World Theatre presented by the Senior College of Central Nebraska as a special class for Senior College members. February 12 Aquarela (Unique Cinematography)

Water is the main protagonist, seen in all its great and terrible beauty. Mountains of ice move and break apart as if they had a life of their own. Kossakovsky’s film travels the world, from the precarious frozen waters of Russia’s Lake Baikal and Miami in the throes of Hurricane Irma, to Venezuela’s mighty Angel Falls to paint a portrait of this fluid life force in all its glorious forms. Fragile humans experience life and death, joy and despair in the face of its power

Exhibit Reception “Essential Yet Unseen: Servant Life in the 1890s”

Join us February 8th for a reception at the G.W. Frank Museum of History and Culture to officially unveil our new permanent exhibit: “Essential Yet Unseen: Servant Life in the 1890s.” This unique exhibit offers visitors a chance to step back in time into a recreated 1890s servant’s quarters. The exhibit will provide an intimate glimpse into the private, everyday lives of these essential, yet traditionally “unseen,” people that worked and lived at the Frank family home. Come see and imagine what life was like for a major part of Kearney’s late nineteenth century population!

Senior College World Series

The World Series is a monthly showing of recent award-winning documentary films at the World Theatre presented by the Senior College of Central Nebraska as a special class for Senior College members. December 18 The Brink (Nominated for 4 Awards)

When Steve Bannon left his position as White House chief strategist, he was already a notorious figure in Trump’s inner circle, and for bringing a far-right ideology into the highest echelons of American politics. Unconstrained by an official post — though some say he still has a direct line to the White House — he became free to peddle influence as a perceived kingmaker, turning his controversial brand of nationalism into a global movement. To maintain his power and influence, the former Goldman Sachs banker and media investor reinvents himself — as he has many times before — this time as the self-appointed leader of a global populist movement.
