On Screen/In Person Series: Wonder Women!

Location: Taylor Little Theatre
Mar 16, 2014 @ 2:00 PM

 From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today, Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines looks at how popular representations of powerful women reflect society’s anxieties about women’s liberation. Go behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, comic writers and artists, real-life superheroines and more for an enlightening counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre. This film screens Sunday, March 16, at 2 p.m. in the Taylor Little Theatre. Audience members are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite superhero. The filmmaker will be present for a Q&A following the film and will choose the patron with the best costume for a prize. The On Screen/In Person Series is made possible by the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation. Tickets are $6 for adults, $5 for students/seniors and $1 for Mercyhurst students (with ID). For tickets, call 814-824-3000 or visit miac.mercyhurst.edu.
