REACH LECTURE SERIES: THE HOLLYWOOD BLOCKBUSTER
Brian Rose will present on The Hollywood Blockbuster: How Steven Spielberg and George Lucas Changed the Movies. Hollywood is an industry that has always depended on blockbusters, beginning with The Birth of a Nation and continuing with epics like Gone with the Wind, The Ten Commandments, and The Sound of Music. But in 1974, two young filmmakers, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, would together change the way movies were made. Whether they were making films together or separately, they introduced the age of the “modern blockbuster,” which featured elaborate special effects and thrilling spectacles. This presentation will look at their four decades of filmmaking and discuss how they changed the movies.

Presented by Bristal Assisted Living
