Tuesday: Doc. Screenings at American Theater



The Center for the Documentary at the College of Charleston loves documentaries. Since 2005, they’ve been making them and promoting them, and on Tues. Feb. 17, they’re presenting a free viewing of two of the year’s best at the American Theater. In anticipation of the Academy Awards on Feb. 22, they’re showing two of the 15 nominated films: Man on Wire and Encounter at the End of the World. With a screening at 6 p.m., Man on Wire is about French tightrope walker Philippe Petit, who staged a highly illegal walk between the Twin Towers in 1974. Then at 8 p.m., Encounters at the End of the World follows filmmaker Werner Herzog to Antarctica to capture its landscape’s rarely-seen beauty. At the end of the night, viewers can vote for their favorite film, and a raffle will be drawn for someone to win a copy of that film. Concessions will be for sale at the theater. —Erica Jackson Tue., Feb. 17, 6 & 8 p.m. Free, (843) 737–9225. American Theater, 446 King St. (843) 722-3456.
