Meaningful Movies of Renton finds a new venue

Meaningful Movies of Renton has a new venue and an amazing line-up of movies coming to Carco Theater. Everyone knows and loves Renton’s Carco Theater and we are so lucky to have the opportunity to make this the home of Meaningful Movies of Renton. The theater allows for a much larger gig than we have been able to host in the past and will help us in creating greater community events. Meaningful Movies of Renton is a collaborative effort between the Meaningful Movies Project and Sustainable Renton. Our aim is to educate and inspire our local community through the use of documentary films and engaging dialogue. Our very first film was in August of 2013 located at our office space in the Renton Highlands neighborhood. Since then, we have had monthly events both at the office and at Luther’s Table in the downtown Renton. Our lineup has included great films such as Affluenza, Fresh, More Than Honey and Shift Change. Now we are collaborating with other local organizations to bring great films to Renton this Fall and Winter. For the months of November and December we have joined forces with the amazing youth organization CryOut! to feature films that will highlight the issues of race and equality. We will begin on November 13th at 6:30 p.m.with the film White Like Me. For years, Tim Wise’s bestselling books and spellbinding lectures have challenged some of our most basic assumptions about race in America. White Like Me brings the full range of his work to the screen, showing how white privilege has perpetuated racial inequality and race-driven political resentments in ways most white people simply aren’t aware of.
