This image has been archived or removed.
Your Thursday night just got infinitely cooler, my friends. Starting this evening (February 18), the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (a.k.a. MoRUS) will host their Movies @ MoRUS series at 155 Avenue C.
Going down every third Thursday of the month at 7pm, Movies @ MoRUS’ flick roster will showcase topics of social justice, political reform, environmental activism, and of course, Lower East Side history. Group discussion and additional commentary will conclude each screening. Each showing is free to the public, so why not skip the Junior Mints and pony up a $5 donation.
Kicking off tonight’s festivities is Long Distance Revolutionary: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal—a close-up look at the journalist on death-row whose conviction in the case of the 1981 murder of a Philadelphia cop continues to spark debates over the judicial system, capital punishment, and more.
Other films on tap include 1971 on March 17, Garbage Warrior on April 21, and the Academy Award-nominated documentary Food, Inc. on May 19.
