Film Discussion - Jane

November 11th 2:15pm


Join us for a discussion of Jane following the 2:15 p.m. screening on Saturday, November 11 with Mitch Paine from the Jane Goodall Institute and Alan Varsik, Director, Pt. Defiance Zoo and Aquarium/Northwest Trek Wildlife Park, Metro Parks Tacoma.

about Alan varsik:

Connecting people to animals and nature has been my driver for my entire career. During the past 33 years I’ve held many roles in zoos and aquariums, from Volunteer, to Keeper, to Director, and worked at several institutions including Brookfield Zoo, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Santa Barbara Zoo, Oklahoma City Zoo and, currently, Pt. Defiance Zoo and Aquarium and Northwest Trek Wildlife Park. A significant component to my career has been a focus on primates, specifically great apes. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to Africa to see gorillas and chimpanzees in the wild.

Post-film discussions at The Grand Cinema offer audience members the opportunity to discuss new films and expand their movie-going experience beyond the screen in a fun environment. Look for new discussions every week!
