This winter and spring, join film historian Eric Grayson as he presents “Fallen Stars,” a film series featuring actors who were ostracized from Hollywood.

Exile Express (1939) Featuring Anna Sten

Spies will not stop at murder in their attempts to wrest a secret formula for a deadly poison away from American scientists.

Originally billed as “The Russian Garbo,” Sten’s thick accent didn’t connect with American audiences, and she was blamed for a series of expensive failures. As a result, Sten was redubbed “Anna Stench” by the press.

Porter and Mathews postcard

Join us for this exciting exhibit by two Indianapolis painters. Dianna Porter’s “A Life Study” focuses on “documenting a moment in time …imitating a mood on a two dimensional surface.” William Mathews will be showing a collection titled ‘“trav·e·logue” A movie, book, or illustrated lecture about the places visited and experiences encountered by a traveler.’ The landscapes and portraits in this exhibit will truly captivate your senses.
