Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story



Hollywood's Hedy Lamarr (originally Hedy Kiesler) has been called "the Angelina Jolie of her day," and "the most beautiful woman in the world." Her dazzling beauty, however, proved to be a heartbreaking distraction from her real calling: a genius inventor credited with developing technology leading to today's Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth. Come join us to see why this exciting new film is getting such a buzz from NPR, the New York Times, and many others!

With Special Guest: Gannett film columnist Jack Garner
