Theater to show debates

The Homer Theatre will show the last two debates between presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Both debates will be shown live starting at 5 p.m. Oct. 16 and Oct. 22. 

“Admission is free for all to experience the debates in an open, respectful, non-partisan environment,” the theater said in a press release. “This is an opportunity for community members to enjoy the debates on the big screen and hear what the two nominees for our nation’s leadership have to say, such that we can all make the most educated, informed decision when it is time to vote on Nov. 6.”

The Oct. 16 debate is a town meeting format on foreign and domestic policy in which citizens ask questions. The debate is held at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., and moderated by CNN chief political correspondent Candy Crowley. 

The second debate on Oct. 22 is on foreign policy and held at Lynn University, Boca Raton, Fla., and moderated by Bob Schieffer, host of Face the Nation on CBS.
