Philosophy Movie Night

Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology (DSPT) students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the local community gather several times each semester to discuss philosophical themes in great movies. There will be a ten-minute talk before each movie and a related philosophical topic is discussed after the showing. The public, philosophers and scholars are invited to attend.
