The Auteur Film Series will screen the Sidney Lument classic, Network.
The film supports the series’ 2011-12 theme of “Films From the Wasteland: TV and the Recline(r) of Civilization.”
Network chronicles the meltdown of Howard Beale, the news anchor, who finds out he is about to be fired due to low ratings. The network exploits Beale’s downward spiral by giving him his own show, where he becomes the “mad prophet of the airwaves.”
Network will be shown at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 15, at the Living Legends Conference Center on the Spring Creek Campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano.
The screening is free and open to the public.
The film runs 121 minutes. Some material may not be suitable for all audiences.
