IU president selects rock flicks for film series


Indiana University President and rock fan Michael A. McRobbie has picked four movies involving rock stars from the 1960s and '70s to be shown in a special film series on the Bloomington campus.

The films for the President's Choice Film Series at IU Cinema include "Woodstock," ''Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii," ''Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day" and "Don't Look Back," a documentary about Bob Dylan shot during a 1965 concert tour.

The film festival begins Feb. 4 and continues Feb. 11, Feb. 18 and April 29.

Tickets for all films in the series are $3 each.

McRobbie says rock has provided iconic performers and key moments in cultural history.
