Uptown! Opens theater for free viewing of ‘John Lewis: Good Trouble’

WEST CHESTER — On Monday, July 13th, Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center is opening its doors to the public for its first indoor event since the mandated shutdown in March.  JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE, a newly released documentary on the legendary civil rights hero and United States Congressman.

Although the film was completed before the current Black Lives Matter movement, it allows the viewer to reflect on today’s events and the importance of John Lewis’ work.

As a performing arts organization with diverse voices, Uptown! is committed to its mission to promote cultural, economic, and civic life experiences in our community through live theater, music, dance, and film.

Immediately following the feature, there will be a pre-recorded discussion between Representative Lewis and Oprah Winfrey, filmed last month and being made available exclusively for virtual cinema and in-theater engagements of the film. This is a wide-ranging, informal, 16-minute conversation that’s a perfect follow-up to the documentary, and could not be more relevant.
