CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa's Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center (GBPAC) will continue its Inspiration Film Series with a showing of "Showbusiness: The Road to Broadway" at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 11.

Films will be shown each month, and will include "Charles Bradley: Soul of America" in October, "Citizen Kane" in November and "It's a Wonderful Life" in December. Each film includes free popcorn, with beverages available for purchase.

"We started the film series with the idea that film is just another art form, a way to connect and communicate with people," said Janelle Darst, director of marketing and operations at the GBPAC. "This year we tried to go with the Reaching for Higher Ground theme of 'American Dream.' We hope people who come to the films will find most of them thought-provoking as well as entertaining."

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased in advance or at the door. UNI students get in free with their uCard. For more information, contact Darst at 319-273-3676 or
