Mystery Movie: Monday 12/12

Join the Mystery Books Group for a showing of In Bruges (2010) on Monday at 2pm in Laxalt Auditorium.

Colin Farrell and Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes star in this edgy, action-packed comedy filled with thrilling chases, spectacular shoot-outs and an explosive ending you won’t want to miss! Hit men Ray (Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson) have been ordered to cool their heels in the storybook city of Bruges (it’s in Belgium) after finishing a big job. But since hit men make the worst tourists, they soon find themselves in a life-and-death struggle of comic proportions against one very angry crime boss (Fiennes)! Get ready for the outrageous and unpredictable fun you will have In Bruges, the movie critics are calling “wildly entertaining.”

FYI from OLLI Board President

You may have already seen news reports that UNR and the Cathexis have reached agreement on the sale of the Nelson Building for the 2nd Street Development project.  The sales agreement will be presented to the University Regents at their Dec 1 meeting and we expect it will be approved.  
Your Olli Board has already been working with President Johnson and the University on finding a new home for OLLI.  I am confident that we will be successful and move forward with a facility that will meet both current and future OLLI needs re classroom space, accessibility, and parking.  
If the sale proceeds as we think it will, Warren Ronsheimer and I will visit as many OLLI classes as we can to update you and answer questions.  
Thanks for your support and understanding.

Ralph Jaeck, OLLI Board President

Dec 1: Election observation in El Salvador

Think our election was crazy? Imagine what an election is like in El Salvador, a country recovering from a civil war and gang violence.  A panel of volunteer observers will discuss what they saw on Dec. 1 at noon in Nelson Main.
