KALAMAZOO -- The Western Film Society presents Richard Linklater's innovative new film "Waking Life," Friday through Sunday, Jan. 18-20. Little Theatre showtimes are Friday and Saturday, Jan. 18-19, at 7 and 9:30 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 20, at 2:30 and 5 p.m.

"Waking Life" computer-animated film is about a college- age man who wanders in and out of a series of philosophical discussions and meets an interesting cast of characters along the way.
