METUCHEN – The Forum Theatre will present two documentaries this weekend.
“Inside Job” opens on Friday, Jan. 7 at 7:30 p.m., with additional screenings at 3 and 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Directed by Charles Ferguson and narrated by Matt Damon, “Inside Job” presents a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008.
On Saturday, Jan. 8, the Metuchen Cultural Arts Commission, The Raconteur and the Forum Theatre will present “William Burroughs, A Man Within” at 8 p.m. Following the screening, there will be a talk back with Director Yony Leyser.
Hailed as the grandfather of punk and the godfather of the beat generation, Burroughs was a bartender, a private detective, a factory worker, an exterminator, a heroin addict, and a writer. His novel, Naked Lunch, one of the last books to be banned by the U.S. government, remains one of the most recognized literary works of the 20th century.
All seats are $12 and can be purchased online at forumtheatrearts.org or at the door the evening of the screening.
The Forum Theatre is located at 314 Main Street, Metuchen.
