UNLV welcomes acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro for the latest installment of the Barrick Lecture Series
Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m.
Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall at UNLV main campus
Near Maryland Parkway and Cottage Grove Avenue
The Barrick Lecture Series presents nationally and internationally renowned speakers through a generous grant from philanthropist Marjorie Barrick.
Guillermo del Toro was able to parlay his childhood love of the macabre into a highly successful career as a filmmaker, making his feature debut in 1993 with Cronos. He helmed the comic-book adaptations Blade II and Hellboy before directing Pan’s Labyrinth, an acclaimed, artfully distinguished film that was nominated for a Foreign Language Film Academy Award.
Del Toro also directed the action blockbuster Pacific Rim and the haunted house/period piece Crimson Peak, before receiving his first Oscar win for Best Director in 2018 for the sci-fi romance The Shape of Water.
The lecture is free and open to the public but tickets are required. Tickets are limited to two per person and can be obtained from the Performing Arts Center box office. Due to high demand, pre-release tickets for UNLV faculty, staff, and students are no longer available. Tickets for the general public, including members of the UNLV community, will be available beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 29.
The Performing Arts Center (PAC) box office is located off of Cottage Grove Avenue at S. Maryland Parkway, on the campus of UNLV. Contact the PAC box office at (702) 895-2787 or visit the PAC website.
