MLK Film Screening

Join us in honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy and the continuing fight for civil rights and social justice.

FREE and open to the public. Join us in screening the Oscar-nominated documentary, 13th by Ava DuVernay, director of Selma and Queen Sugar. Free coffee and hot cocoa will be provided for all, and free popcorn will be given to the first 25 people at each showing!

Doors open 30 minutes prior to showtimes at 1 PM and 7 PM. The film is 1 hour 40 minutes, and we will have time afterwards for Q&A/discussion if you choose to stay. Rated TV-MA, may be appropriate for teens with parental discretion, but is not intended for younger children.

These free showings are made possible by the Austin Human Rights Commission, Austin Area Commission for the Arts, Paramount Theatre, Welcome Center, and Riverland Equity & Inclusion Committee.

America makes up 5% of the world's population, yet locks up 25% of the world's prisoners. Ava DuVernay's 13th explores how we got here.
