Cinematheque Sets "Goats" Event

By admin Published: January 13, 2011

The official word: The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque and the Cleveland Council on World Affairs will present a special screening of the 2009 George Clooney/Jeff Bridges comedy THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS on Monday, January 31, at 7:00 pm in CIA's Aitken Auditorium, 11141 East Boulevard in University Circle. John B. Alexander, a retired U.S. Army colonel and intelligence expert who was one of the real-life military men who inspired Clooney's character in the movie, will appear in person to answer questions after the screening.

The film, a Strangelovian military farce about the development of paranormal techniques to be used during war, co-stars Ewan McGregor and Kevin Spacey and was based on a nonfiction book of the same title by Jon Ronson. John Alexander figures prominently in the book; he is a leading advocate for the development of non-lethal weapons.

Admission to this program is $12; Cinematheque and CCWA members and CIA students & staff $8. Reservations can be made online at www.ccwa.org. Free parking for filmgoers is available in the adjacent CIA lot.
