What Makes Us Tick?
What Makes Us Tick? is an annual, three-part analytical film series that explores aspects of the human experience. The popular event, now in its 15th year, takes place every January over the Martin Luther King Day weekend. This event is programmed by a Planning Committee working with the Cinema Theater Manager. The volunteer Planning Committee includes several mental health professionals, possibly educators, and other community members. This group determines the theme of the upcoming series. They review films that correspond to the theme, select the final three films, and prepare for the three-day event. Each day a film is introduced, presented, and then followed with a post-screening discussion led by one or two members of the Planning Committee.
This event is a wonderful opportunity to share perspectives on the characters in the film, the plot, and how it relates to the theme of the series. If you love to watch and talk about films, or listen to others’ opinions, you will enjoy this experience.
