Free Movie Night at The Co-op!

February 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Movie Night is back! Every year, the Co-op hosts a series of free movie nights. We have a fabulous selection this year, and are excited to share these three films with you.

Join us for one, or all three! We provide the film, popcorn, and juice! Films start at 7pm in Room 309, on our 3rd floor.

 

February 8 || That Sugar Film
That Sugar Film started as one man’s journey to discover the bitter truth about sugar. Damon Gameau embarked on a unique experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body, consuming only foods that are commonly perceived, or promoted as ‘healthy’. Through this entertaining and informative journey, Damon highlights some of the issues that plague the sugar industry, and will change the way people think about ‘healthy’ food.

 

February 15 || More Than Honey
This film tackles the vexing issue of why bees, worldwide, are facing extinction. With the tenacity of a man out to solve a world-class mystery, Markus Imhoof investigates this global phenomenon, from California to Switzerland, China and Australia. Exquisite macro-photography of the bees in flight and in their hives reveals a fascinating, complex world in crisis. This is a strangely moving film that raises questions of species survival in cosmic as well as apiary terms.

 

February 22 || In Defense of Food 
Eat Food. Not Too Much. Mostly Plants. With those seven words, journalist Michael Pollan distills a career’s worth of reporting into a prescription for reversing the damage being done to people’s health by today’s industrially-driven Western diet. Pollan offers a clear answer to one of the most urgent questions of our time: What should I eat to be healthy?
