Carmichael was an actor and a songwriter, but before he launched his career, he was an IU student.
He was born and raised in Bloomington, and he is buried in Rose Hill Cemetery.
Starting off the film celebration is “Hoagy,” a documentary about Carmichael by Peter Davis. Davis will deliver a Jorgensen Guest Film Lecture at 3 p.m. Nov. 22 at the cinema, and the film will screen at 7 p.m.
The two other films, “The Best Years of Our Lives” and “Topper,” feature Carmichael’s acting. They will screen at the cinema Nov. 23 and Nov. 24 respectively, and both films will start at 3 p.m.
All screenings are free but ticketed, and tickets may be picked up at the IU Auditorium Box Office, one hour before screening at the cinema, or by phone at 812-855-1103 with a $10 service fee.
