Craven CC’s Lifetime Learning Center continues International Film Series with ‘Blind Date’

Craven Community CollegeNew Bern, NC – The Craven Community College Lifetime Learning Center (LLC) will present “Blind Date” this Friday, Feb. 7, as part of Explorations: The International Film Series.

“Blind Date,” a 2015 comedy/romance from France, tells the story of a young woman and professional pianist who moves into the apartment next to a grumpy and antisocial inventor of complicated board games. The new neighbors find themselves feeling as though their lives have become a living nightmare. With the walls as thin as a sheet of paper, neither of them can avoid listening to what the other is doing and they soon do everything they can to annoy each other. After reaching a common agreement and establishing a schedule so as not to interrupt the other’s activities, they soon develop an unusual relationship in which they spend every day together, talking but keeping their identities secret and never revealing their names.

Explorations is an annual film series offered by the Craven Community College Foundation.

Each film takes place in Orringer Auditorium on the New Bern campus on Fridays and has two show times: a matinee at 2:30 p.m. and an evening screening at 7:30 p.m. All films are presented with original sound and language, featuring English subtitles.

The public is welcome and admission is free. This series is made possible in part by a gift from corporate sponsors that include Signature Wealth Strategies, Jon Tait, CFP and Ashley Martin-Irizarry, Wealth Advisor, RJFS.
