The Granada Theatre Film Series Continues With Political Drama, ‘Thirteen Days’

Movies That Matter with Hal Conklin, part of The Granada Theatre Film Series, continues at 7 p.m. Monday, May 16, 2016, with a very special screening of the political drama Thirteen Days.

The film will be brought to life on The Granada Theatre’s 4k digital cinema system, allowing audience members to experience this cinematic portrayal of the Cuban Missile Crisis like never before. 

For thirteen extraordinary days in October 1962, the world stood on the brink of an unthinkable catastrophe.

Inspired by the syndicated film column “Cinema In Focus,” each of the Movies that Matter screenings offer the unique experience of engaging conversation with special guests in The Granada Theatre’s stunning setting.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
