Wednesday, May 29, 7:00 PM
1946/114min/NR

Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Martha Vickers, Dorothy Malone, John Ridgely

Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall ignite the screen in this classic film noir adaptation of Raymond Chandler's steamy detective novel. When private investigator Philip Marlowe (Bogart) accepts the blackmail case of one of Los Angeles' wealthiest men, his probe leads deep into a web of lies, drugs, pornography and murder woven around his client's two beautiful daughters. But Marlowe's most startling discovery is his inexorable attraction to one of the sisters. Nobel Prize-winning author William Faulkner collaborated on the screenplay. Based on the novel by William Chandler.

Bag It - Film Screen
39 Keep Street
Tuesday, Jun. 11, 7:00pm
Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes -- single-use disposable bags that we mindlessly throw away. But where is "away?" Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to our environment, marine life and human health? Bag It follows "everyman" Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. Jeb's journey in this documentary film starts with simple questions: Are plastic bags really necessary? What are plastic bags made from? What happens to plastic bags after they are discarded? Jeb looks beyond plastic bags and discovers that virtually everything in modern society-from baby bottles, to sports equipment, to dental sealants, to personal care products-is made with plastic or contains potentially harmful chemical additives used in the plastic-making process. When Jeb's journey takes a personal twist, we see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up with us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.
Following the screening of the film, we will have a discussion moderated by Marian Glenn, Phd, Professor of Biological Sciences at Seton Hall University.  Sponsored by ANJEC - Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions.
