JAMES RAY: Film events reflect goals of Patriots group
The Indiana Theater being open for use by various groups for programs they wish to share with the community is proving to be a great venue.
Thursday evening was a good example of that when attendance was one of the largest since the theater reopened. Citizens from Indiana and Armstrong counties and others showed a keen interest in learning the truth about a subject that has captured the interest of many in our area. The film “FrackNation,” along with a Q&A session by Phelim McAleer, director of the documentary, generated at least an hour of questions for Mr. McAleer.
Kudos to the Indiana Armstrong Patriots for providing this opportunity for the community and to the IUP student Republican Club for assisting with this effort as well as to the theater management. One of the Indiana Armstrong Patriots’ goals is to bring programs to the community to educate our citizens.
Recognizing the importance of family is another goal of the group. Sunday the venue was used to present a family film, “Peter Pan,” after which the kids flocked around craft tables to make a crocodile to take home. The film was well attended and all had a great time.
The next film, “Beauty and the Beast,” will be Sunday, May 19, at 2 p.m. The Patriot group plans to present other topics in the future, which will be announced as soon as guests can be scheduled.
