Hiroshima Day Film Screening in Arlington
Dear Arlington friends and neighbors,
Please join your Arlington Human Rights Commission along with Massachusetts Peace Action for a very special event!
Where: Regent Theatre (7 Medford St, Arlington, MA 02474)
When: August 6 from 6-9 pm
Massachusetts Peace Action is sponsoring a screening of The War Game, an Academy-Award winning film by Peter Watkins. The screening will be followed by a talk with Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Ira Helfand and a candlelight vigil. Doors open at 6 pm, the screening begins at 7, and Dr. Helfand will begin his talk around 7:45. The candlelight vigil will take place by the Civil War memorial in Arlington Center around 8:45 pm.
The screening aims to draw attention to the costs of nuclear war and highlight the dangers that arise from our stockpiled and developing nuclear weapons. Dr. Helfand’s talk will explain what can be done about the nuclear threat as well as taking time to answer audience questions.
Tickets can be bought or reserved here. The suggested donation is $10, but people can pay more or less depending on their financial situation. There’s also an option to reserve tickets now and pay at the door.
More information about the event (and a list of cosponsors) can be found here.
