We hosted a lot of film screenings back in the day. Since we've been focusing on the growth of our international website over the last few years, our screenings have slowed down significantly, but we hope to get back into it eventually.

Until then, here is a little trip back in time, a look at most of the screenings our Lawrence, KS chapter has done in the past:
