Fall Movie Nights — Fall 2018
The Elliott School of Communication

Once a month during the Fall 2018 semester, the ESC will pop popcorn and show a movie related to communication industries and professions. All the movies will be shown in Elliott Hall room 112, with popcorn available in the Commons area. Free to WSU students with an ID.

The semester’s movie selections are:

Helvetica — An independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture, Helvetica looks at the proliferation of one typeface as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. It will be shown in Elliott Hall 112 Thursday, Sept. 26 at 7 p.m.

Shattered Glass — This film tells the true story of a young journalist who rose to meteoric heights, but it was found that 27 of his 41 stories were either partially or completely made up. His deception did not go unnoticed forever. It will be shown in Elliott Hall 112 Thursday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m.

Popcorn and movies are free to WSU students with an ID. Donations will be accepted to help raise money to for a new Multimedia Lab

What Women Want — An advertising exec has his life turned haywire when a fluke accident enables him to hear what women think. At first he wants to rid himself of this curse, until he figures out this could be used to his advantage! It will be shown in Elliott Hall 112 Thursday, Nov. 23 at 7 p.m.
