Fans of classic movies can take advantage of a new film series titled “Movie Bucket List” beginning March 24 at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College Bainbridge.

Dr. Michael Kirkland, Executive Director of ABAC Bainbridge, and Dr. Dave Nelson, a professor of history at ABAC Bainbridge, will host the series which begins with the classic “To Kill A Mockingbird” at 6:30 p.m. on March 24 in Room 961 of the Student Wellness Center at ABAC Bainbridge.  The public is invited to attend at no charge.

“This is a two-year film series that involves a discussion of some of the most important films of the last 75 years,” Kirkland said.  “Community members are invited to join ABAC students in a discussion of the movies.  We will talk about all aspects of each movie including the social, political, and artistic importance of the films.”
