A Free Movie for the Community on February 24.

The Magnificent Seven is a 1960 American Western film directed by John Sturges and starring Yul Brynner, Eli Wallach, Horst Buchholz, James Coburn, Brad Dexter, Steve McQueen, Robert Vaughn, and Charles Bronson. The film is an Old West-style remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 Japanese film Seven Samurai. Brynner, McQueen, Buchholz, Bronson, Vaughn, Coburn, and Dexter portray the title characters, a group of seven gunfighters hired to protect a small village in Mexico from a group of marauding bandits and their leader (Wallach).

The Big Read Project, a collaborative project funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, Associated Students of NMSU, and the NMSU Office of the Provost, will be launched in Las Cruces in February 2018. This project seeks to promote community-wide activities surrounding the book Into the Beautiful North by Luis Urrea. NMSU celebrates reading and literacy in the borderland with its common read of Luis Urrea’s novel Into the Beautiful North.

There will be a host of events in February and March sponsored the Big Read Project, including a kick-off event at the Las Cruces downtown plaza with music, dancers, and book distributions, and the Big Read will culminate with the visit of the author on March 13. In between there will be book clubs discussing the book, film screenings, panel discussions, and more.
