First published in 1938 in Story magazine, “Address Unknown” by Kathrine Kressmann was a wake-up call for Americans revealing the true nature of the Nazi menace. This punchy epistolary tale enacts a stunning drama of friendship, betrayal and vengeance. 75 years later, “Kressman’s story serves not only as a reminder of Nazi horrors but as a cautionary tale in light of current racial, ethnic and nationalist intolerance.”—Publisher’s Weekly. Featuring Alex Davis and David Newman and directed by David Newman.

“The Theory of Everything”
Spring Film Series
Sunday, April 26 @ 3:00 p.m.
Based on the memoir “Traveling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen,” by Jane Hawking, this film tells the extraordinary story of renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne), who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones). Little is expected from Stephen, a bright but shiftless student of cosmology given just two years to live following the diagnosis of a fatal illness at 21 years of age. However, he goes on to become the most brilliant and celebrated physicist of our time as well as a husband and father to three children. Rated PG-13 for some thematic elements and suggestive material. 123 minutes.
