Peyton Reed is one of the buzzier UNC-Chapel Hill alumni who'll be in town for homecoming weekend. After departing the Triangle for an increasingly visible Hollywood career as the director of Bring It On, Yes Man and, most recently, Marvel's Ant-Man, Reed returns to his alma mater to participate in the inaugural Stembler Lecture at the UNC School of Media and Journalism. He'll be joined by Motion Picture Association of America CEO (and former senator) Chris Dodd and Georgia Theatre Company CEO Bill Stembler for a discussion of the possibilities and problems filmmakers and theater owners must confront in an industry landscape being terraformed by the double-edged sword of digital technology. Reed's Ant-Man, about a shrinking superhero, should make an excellent case study. It's the sort of cutting-edge spectacle that could scarcely exist without digital tech as a tool for production, even as its solvency is threatened by digital tech as a tool for piracy and an incubator of intense viewing-option competition. 4 p.m., free, 114 E. Cameron Ave., Chapel Hill, 919-962-1204, —Brian Howe
