Following a screening of his work in the comedy "Little Miss Sunshine," associate director of programming Kent Jones will lead a discussion with the star as clips from his screen career are shown. Arkin started on the stage in St. Louis and then Chicago's Second City. The Brooklyn native made his Broadway debut in Enter Laughing and subsequently played in Luv. He then took to directing, staging Broadway's Hail Scrawdyke!, Molly, Taller Than a Dwarf and The Sunshine Boys — which earned him a Tony nomination.
Arkin's film work includes "Russians," "Wait Until Dark," "Catch-22," "Last of the Red Hot Lovers," "Edward Scissorhands," "The In-Laws," "Glengarry Glen Ross" and "Slums of Beverly Hills," among many more.
