— Free Movie – Free Popcorn —

Friday, April 20th at 8 PM

The Columbine High School massacre resulted in the murders of 12 students and one teacher. It is now 19 years after that horrific incident. This country has suffered many many mass shootings since, and the U.S. is STILL asking itself the same questions this documentary first posed. WHEN is this country going to say… #EnoughIsEnough ?

Running Time: 2 hours
We will have a 15 minute intermission

Rated R – Some violent images and language

Bowling for Columbine is a 2002 American documentary film written, produced, directed, and narrated by Michael Moore. The film explores what Moore suggests are the primary causes for the Columbine High School massacre on April 20, 1999, and other acts of violence with guns. Moore focuses on the background and environment in which the massacre took place and some common public opinions and assumptions about related issues. The film also looks into the nature of violence in the United States.

A critical and commercial success, the film brought Moore international attention as a rising filmmaker and won numerous awards, including the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, the Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary Feature, a special 55th Anniversary Prize at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival, and the César Award for Best Foreign Film. This film is considered one of the greatest documentary films of all time.

Movie Night “Slaughterhouse 5”

Image may contain: 1 person, indoor

Saturday, April 7th at 8 PM – join us for a free screening if “Slaughterhouse 5” at Common Root.

“Billy Pilgrim has come unstuck in time.” So starts the story. This is considered by many as being the best adaptation of a Vonnegut Novel to the big screen. I very much agree, though I haven’t seen every adaptation yet. The story is very much autobiographical in that the protagonist is captured during World War 2 and is a POW in Dresden during it’s firebombing by the Allies. This also happened to Vonnegut. There are several ‘links’ to other novels incorporated within the film. There is some nudity and a great deal of violence. As always, popcorn will be provided. Feel free to bring food and drink to enjoy and/or share.
