Turning Red Screening at LPC

Join us September 14 at 6 p.m.
TU’s Lorton Performance Center

On September 14th at 7 p.m., the Oklahoma Center for the Humanities will screen Disney Pixar’s Turning Red at the Lorton Performance Center on campus.

The film, a Best Animated Feature nominee in 2023, follows Meilin “Mei” Lee, whose life gets turned upside down when she wakes one morning transformed into a red panda. Mei, with support from her friends and family, must learn how to balance her feelings and remember her family and friends to avoid the disastrous effects that may arise from her transformations.

Join us before the screening at 6 p.m. for dinner and various activities in the lobby outside the Gussman Concert Hall. Test your Pixar knowledge in our trivia game and wear your best costume for a chance to win a gift card to Circle Cinema!

After the screening, a panel of TU faculty from our Film, Art, Psychology, Computer Science, and Game Design departments will discuss many aspects of the movie, from its animation style to its cultural significance.

The screening goes precedes the October 3rd Presidential Lecture featuring Danielle Feinberg. Feinberg began her career at Pixar Animation Studios in February 1997, and since then, has worked on 14 of Pixar’s feature films including A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, Finding Nemo and WALL-E. She took on role of visual effects supervisor for Pixar’s latest release, Turning Red, the first woman in 20 years to take on that role at the company.
