Come for the movies. Stay for the conversation when we restart First Thursday Films @ the Capri.
First, thank you to all who’ve joined us over the first five years for great First Thursdays films and discussions. You’ve experienced, with us, the sense of community we build when we get together around powerful art and important topics. We can’t wait to see you again.
And — a huge thank you to everyone at North High School, where the series was held during our 2019-20 season due to Capri construction, and prior to COVID. You were such gracious and accommodating hosts. It was a pleasure working with you, and we were so proud to be a small part of your tremendous school for a short while. Go Polars!
Our plans are to restart the First Thursdays series at the Capri in fall of 2021, but as we all know things are in a state of flux. Please check back here or mspfilm.org for updates.
In the meantime, MSP Film Society presents We the People: Required Watching, an ongoing screening series of films that speak powerfully to systemic inequality, followed by conversations with filmmakers and community leaders discussing ways we can support social justice and anti-racism efforts within our communities. All of these conversations can be viewed at any time on MSP Film Society’s Facebook page. *
Topical and relevant in these turbulent times, First Thursday Films @ the Capri aims to create a space for dialogue and better understanding in much the same way as We the People. Please join us when we return.
