FROM IDS REPORTS

The IU Cinema was officially dedicated last night, at which actor and director Peter Bogdanovich, President Michael McRobbie, Mayor Mark Kruzan and other guests of honor were present.

“IU is now able to see masterpieces of cinema as they were meant to be seen,” McRobbie said to the guests of the dedication.

The cinema, which opened Jan. 13, is one of the few THX-certified campus cinemas in the country and is the country’s best-equipped campus cinema, IU Cinema Director Jon Vickers said.

McRobbie presented Bogdanovich with an honorary degree recognizing his achievements as a film director and for his contributions to the scholarship of film.

Bogdanovich’s collection of more than 100,000 items are kept at the Lilly Library.
McRobbie said Bogdanovich was dedicated to becoming a true student of film.
“He is our honored guest and now our newest alumni,” McRobbie said.

Bogdanovich will discuss his career at 3 p.m. Friday in the cinema.
