Q: Why did the Unitarian Universalist cross the road?

A: To support the chicken in its free and responsible search for truth and meaning.

If you’re Unitarian Universalist, interested in learning more about Unitarian Universalism, or just want to hang out with fun UUs, come have brunch with us (pasta and vegetables from First & Last Tavern)!

Film Series: Peeping Tom

1960. UK. Dir: Michael Powell. With Carl Boehm, Anna Massey. 101 min.

It’s Psycho by way of The Red Shoes: a lurid proto-slasher about a repressed young man who films women as he murders them. Though stylish and eerily prescient of our obsessions with sex, death, and voyeurism, Peeping Tom was so shocking in its day that it all but ended Powell’s career – one critic found it “more nauseating than a leper colony.”

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / Free
