Nearby parking lots include the PMI Parking Lot (6th and Massachusetts Avenue, entrance on Mass.), the Verizon Center Parking Lot (6th and G Streets, entrance on 6th), and the City Center Parking Lot (9th and I Streets, entrance on 9th Street).

Also, a $1 suggested donation to help maintain the Culture Club's presence on would be appreciated.

About the film:

Winner of numerous awards from film festivals all over the country, 9500 Liberty tells the story of a Northern Virginia county's explosive debate over immigration. The film follows a divisive piece of legislation as it makes its way through the Prince William County Council and envelopes the entire community, becoming a powerful symbol in the struggle to define what it means to be American. The Arizona Republic calls the film "timely" and "chilling." The screening will be followed by a Q&A and discussion with the film's director, Annabel Park.

Total RUNNING TIME: 80 minutes (1 hr, 20m)

Check out the film's website (includes video clip): http://www.9500libert...

Possible discussion/drinks afterward

The event is still on for tonight -- despite last night's snow!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this meetup. The film and Q&A were excellent, plus Culture Club members were able to meet and sit together during the event. The venue of the historical synagogue was interesting in its own right, and large enough to accommodate the sizeable crowd.

    Excellent documentary, good pick. Thought provoking look at human dignity and the courage of good people to speak out.
