FEEL GOOD MOVIE OF THE SEASON FROM MPTV COMMUNITY CINEMA

Milwaukee, WI (December 13, 2010) -- The first Thursday of the month between September and May, Milwaukee Public Television (MPTV) hosts a Community Cinema at the Discovery World Innovation Theater, where a thought-provoking video is previewed and a discussion between community experts and the audience ensues.

January 6th brings FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE, an expectation-defying look at the inspiring Spirit of Goodwill Band. This unique group of Miami singers and musicians, all with a wide range of mental and physical challenges, shares a gift for music, joy and friendship. The video follows the band members as they progress from the rehearsal room all the way to the concert of a lifetime. This celebration of their determination, talent and dedication makes this the "feel good" movie of the Community Cinema season.

Discussion panelists include Dorothy Buckhanan Wilson, vice president, Mission Services and Troy Norman, director, Transitional Jobs - both with Goodwill Industries of southeastern Wisconsin.

Community Cinema is free and open to the public. Previews begin at 6:30 p.m. Discovery World is located at 500 N. Harbor Drive in Milwaukee. Parking in the Discovery World underground lot is $1.00 for cinema patrons only. Free street parking may be available.

ONCE IN MY LIFE will broadcast on MPTV 10.1 on Feb. 1st, at 9:00 p.m. on MPTV 10.1 HD. Visit the trailer at http://video.pbs.org/video/1691587932/. For more information, contact Darlyne Haertlein, MPTV Supervisor/Outreach Services at 414-297-7518 or haertled@matc.edu.
