ALTON — What do Sam Peckinpah, Ingmar Bergman and Dennis Quaid have in common?
They are all making appearances at Jacoby Arts Center…their films, anyway.

Every Sunday, a different feature will be shown, introduced by Lewis and Clark Community College Art, History and Culture Professor Jim Price and studio artist and psychotherapist Sun Smith-Foret and featuring related artwork.
Doors open at 1:45, with presentation at 2 p.m. Park in the rear of the building and use the rear entry, which will close at 2:15 p.m. This is an adults-only event, and popcorn is provided. Drinks will be available for purchase, and no outside food or drink is permitted.
