CUDO is proud to be a sponsor of the upcoming Champaign-Urbana premiere of Linotype: The Film, a brand new documentary centered around the amazing Linotype type casting machine.

Called the “Eighth Wonder of the World” by Thomas Edison, the Linotype revolutionized printing and society. The film tells the surprisingly emotional story of the people connected to the Linotype and how it impacted the world. Director Doug Wilson will introduce the film and join a panel discussion immediately following the film. This benefit screening will take place at Parkland Theatre on Thursday, April 12 at 8:00 PM and the suggested donation is $7 at the door.

CUDO is also sponsoring a special dinner to welcome director Doug Wilson to Champaign-Urbana. If you’re interested in joining the director for dinner at 5:00 PM on April 12, please email Paul Young for reservations. We have a table reserved at KoFusion and the cost is $60 per person ($50 for CUDO members). The cost includes your dinner, drinks and tips. Seating is very limited, so reserve your space today.
