Matewan 30th Anniversary Film Screening
This October 7th, acclaimed independent film director John Sayles and producer Maggie Renzi are teaming up with The West Virginia Mine Wars Museum to host a 30th Anniversary Film Screening of Matewan at the Labelle Theatre in South Charleston (311 D Street).
Filmed in the coalfields of Southern West Virginia and featuring local residents as extras, Matewan captures a critical moment in labor history when miners across the Southern Coalfields led a rank and file organizing drive that would change the course of labor relations in our nation for decades to come.
Join us on October 7th to catch one of two screenings at the The Labelle Theatre (3PM and 7PM), along with a raffle, live music, refreshments, Mine Wars Museum merch and a Q&A with the film's creators.
Museum Members are invited to a bonus event: a Members Mingle with John Sayles and Maggie Renzi at Noon at the Unitarian Universalist Chuch in Charleston (520 Kanawha Blvd., W). Look for member invitations shortly! Non-members may sign up for membership at http://www.wvminewars.com/member or pay $20 at the door on a first-come, first-served basis.
Many thanks to the West Virginia Humanities Council for their co-sponsorship of this event. All proceeds for the event benefit The West Virginia Mine Wars Museum's Blair Centennial Project, which is made possible through funding by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
