Please note: As this discussion series occurs on Mondays, and Mondays are a VacCinema day at BMFI, only fully vaccinated students may enroll. Each individual will be asked to show proof of vaccination by presenting their vaccination card or a clear photo of it, as well as photo ID, prior to entering BMFI. Please arrive early to allow adequate time for this process. You may visit the VacCinema page for further information.

In addition: though participants will be able to select their own seats upon entering the theater, please be mindful of others’ desire for distance when making your selection. Masks are recommended while indoors at BMFI. Please email Jill Malcolm with any questions.
