Program Description

Event Details

Before you head to Capitol Civic Center for An Evening with Temple Grandin the evening of Friday, June 21, why not stop by the Balkansky Room on Thursday, June 6, at 6 PM, to acquaint yourself a bit more with the life of Dr. Grandin during a special screening of "Movie Nights at the Library" featuring the unrated HBO Films' biopic, "Temple Grandin." And, admission is absolutely FREE!!!

Based on the writings by its title subject, HBO Films’ Temple Grandin is an engaging portrait of an autistic young woman who became, through timely mentoring and sheer force of will, one of America’s most remarkable success stories. With a tour de force performance by Claire Danes in the title role, the film chronicles Grandin’s early beginnings as a child diagnosed with autism; her turbulent growth and development during her school years; and the enduring support she received from her mother, her aunt and her science teacher. Against all odds, Temple eventually transitioned into a highly-functional, esteemed inventor in the cattle industry, which she revolutionized with her scientific research and designs. This visually inventive film offers stunning insights into Grandin’s world, taking the audience inside her mind with a series of snapshot images that trace her self-perceptions and journey from childhood through young adulthood to the beginning of her career, and beyond.
