EVANSTON - The Northwestern community is invited to a free screening of “La La Land” and a Q&A with the movie’s producer and School of Communication alumnus Jordan Horowitz, now well known for clearing up the confusion at the 2017 Academy Awards to announce definitively that "Moonlight” actually won the award for best picture.

The event will take place Tuesday, May 23, in the Owen L. Coon Forum in Leverone Hall, 2100 Sheridan Road in Evanston, Doors open for the screening at 5 p.m., and “La La Land” will begin at 5:30 p.m. Doors will re-open at 7:50 p.m. for the Q&A with Horowitz, which will begin at 8 p.m. Admission is free, but seats are limited. Tickets can be picked up at the Norris Center desk.

Horowitz will reflect on his time as a theater student at Northwestern and his experiences in Hollywood. In addition to “La La Land,” Horowitz is also known for producing “The Kids Are All Right.”

This event is presented by student-run production company Studio 22 and co-sponsored by the Office of the President. School of Communication lecturer Stephen Cone will moderate the discussion.

Updates on the event will be posted on the event’s Facebook page, and potential questions for the discussion can be submitted online.
