mcrobbie_1544.jpgBLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University President and ardent rock fan Michael A. McRobbie selected four rock-related movies from the 1960s and '70s to be shown in a special film series starting next week on the Bloomington campus.

The films for the President's Choice Film Series at IU Cinema include "Woodstock," "Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii," "Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day" and "Don't Look Back," a documentary about Bob Dylan shot during a 1965 concert tour.

The film festival begins Feb. 4 and continues Feb. 11, Feb. 18 and April 29. Tickets for all films in the series are $3 each.

A native of Australia, McRobbie believes rock has provided iconic performers and key moments in cultural history. No word on whether he prefers the Beatles to the Stones.
