The Cabot has partnered with our friends at Magnolia Pictures to bring you JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE available for virtual screening. The revenue from your rental of this film goes directly to help support The Cabot and helps cover operating costs for the theater while we are shut down during these unprecedented times.

Click the “BUY TICKETS” button to rent the movie. On Thursday, 7/9, all ticket-buyers are welcome to stream a live panel discussion presented by the Freedom Rides Museum of Montgomery, Alabama, featuring Freedom Riders Dr. Bernard Lafayette and Dr. Rip Patton in conversation with director Dawn Porter. In partnership with the Capri Theater. The live panel begins at 8pm ET / 5pm PT (please note time change) and will also be archived to watch afterward.

We are sorry that Cabot movie passes and member benefits cannot be used for virtually screened movies.

Virtual cinema offerings can be enjoyed on your computer or tablet, but you can also connect your computer to your TV for a larger screen experience! Not sure how to do that? Here’s a resource we found on the web that can show you how: click here.

Using interviews and rare archival footage, JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE chronicles Lewis’ 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform and immigration. Using present-day interviews with Lewis, now 80 years old, Porter explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. In addition to her interviews with Lewis and his family, Porter’s primarily cinéma verité film also includes interviews with political leaders, Congressional colleagues, and other people who figure prominently in his life.

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.
