SEXISM | CINEMA PRESENTS Desperately Seeking Susan 

Desperately Seeking Susan, starring Madonna and Rosanna Arquette, and directed by Susan Seidelman, will be screened on Wednesday, December 4th at 7:30 PM at the Alamo Drafthouse. 

After the film we will have a public discussion led by Allison Whitney, Associate Professor of Film and Media Studies.

Admission is $7 for everyone and can be purchased at the Alamo Drafthouse prior to the film or in advance online


We encourage all members of the TTU and Lubbock community to attend.

Fifty plus years ago, the term “sexism” was coined. In light of this historical marker, Alamo Drafthouse and TTU invite you to a film series which considers how sexism is embedded, endorsed, and/or challenged in the cinema. How far have we come? How far do we have to go? We have selected films with female protagonists to view and discuss at Alamo Drafthouse, Lubbock. The films will be followed by a 30 minute discussion led by TTU faculty members and expert guest speakers. Mark your calendars now!

Thank you, organizers 
Michael Borshuk, Don Lavigne, Elizabeth Sharp, Jessica Smith, Dana Weiser, & Allison Whitney
