Movie Night in Lamont Park, Tonight!

Tonight at 6:30 there will be an outside screening, in Lamont Park, of the 2005 movie Independent America: The Two Lane Search for Mom & Pop. This under the radar documentary chronicles a husband and wife team who drive across the U.S. in search of the small, independent businesses and anti-corporate culture. Along the way these former journalists try to abide by rules like not traveling on interstate highways (just the local roads) and only patronizing non-chain establishments. Most of the press on this has been pretty good and the filmmakers have their own blog as well. The movie night is sponsored by Hear Mt Pleasant, Mt Pleasant Main Street, the Latino Economic Development Corporation, and Local First DC. See an extended trailer below.
