A Pre-Oscar Evening with Ty Burr

Take a look at this flyer! Click Here.  This is a unique ESU event that we are co-sponsoring with the Union Club of Boston. It's a great value -  at $30, you will be sufficiently satiated with hors d'oeuvres plus a complimentary glass of wine prior to hearing Ty Burr's stimulating talk on the Oscar and Bafta films nominated this year, how they got to this position - and what is going to happen next. You will go out on a limb and pick winners and losers and explain why, given industry politics in Britain and the United States.

This is a not-to-be missed event, so bundle up, as February 12th has never been known for balmy breezes, and fortify yourself with thoughts of a warmly stimulating evening of conversation in a convivial environment! This will truly be a mid-winter blast worthy of your time. Do not disappoint your fellow ESU members - come one, come all - and bring family and friends with you!  I look forward to personally greeting you at the door.

Best Regards,

Paul T. Boghosian
President
