Don’t miss the holiday screening of Wired; the DeKalb Documentary, directed and produced by Shela Lahey. The film is an exciting, humorous, and educational compilation of stories and memories as told by 57 residents of DeKalb representing every decade from 8 to 92 years of age. The documentary features many DeKalb icons including the Lehan family, Tom Inboden, Rosa Balli, Larry and John Finn, Sally Stevens, Joe Pasteris and many more.
The film relays the powerful history of DeKalb, including NIU (with interviews of John Peters, Dennis Barsema and NIU students), whose citizens’ contributions not only impacted our County but affected change world wide, and brings those stories into the present and gives an exciting outlook for the future. See movie trailer on our right sidebar today.
There will be a Q&A session following the screening with documentary participants including Dee Coover, Donna Gable, Alex Nerad and others. Proceeds from this screening will go towards DeKalb High School student scholarships. Come and support our students and our City this Thursday, December 20th at 7:00pm at the Egyptian Theatre. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors and $5 for children under 12.
