MPTV Community Cinema: FREE Screening of Ken Burns' PROHIBITION

More than rumrunners and speakeasies, Prohibition was a complex era that changed America forever. Preview the new Ken Burns and Lynn Novick documentary which explores the underlying causes and unexpected results of the 18th Amendment and raises vital questions that are still relevant today.

An open discussion immediately follows the showing with Steven M. Avella, professor of history, Marquette University; and Guy Rehorst, founder of Great Lakes Distillery.

Community Cinema presents FREE previews the first Thursday of the month (September through May)

Discovery World's Innovation Theater 500 N. Harbor Dr., Milwaukee
