Watch provoking and award-winning films free at the Long Beach Public Library.

Join other locals at the main branch of the Long Beach Public Library on October 26th for the start of the 2010-2011 season of Community Cinema, which presents monthly screenings of films featured on PBS’ Emmy award-winning series Independent Lens.

The film for October is Reel Injun: On the Trail of the Hollywood Indian, by Neil Diamond.  Screening will begin at 6 p.m., and will be followed by a panel discussion of the film. Future films may be followed by a panel discussion or a related presentation. The films are documentaries; featuring stories and topics from local elections to youth violence to world issues. ‘Reel Injun‘ presents an honest, sometimes serious and sometimes humorous examination of the caricature of the Hollywood Indian, and the impact that this has had on public impressions of real Native Americans.
The Independent Television Service (ITVS) produces Community Cinema, which is also presented by the Long Beach Central Area Association. While admission is free for all of the Community Cinema films, you can insure seating by reserving seats for up to 5 people for Reel Injun and also RSVP for the November and December screenings, courtesy of KCET.
If parking in the nearby parking garage, you can have your ticket validated for a reduced rate.  Street parking is extremely limited but available, and visitors to the library can also ride any of several buses, or use the Metrolink, which has stops nearby.
