Florence Green Movie- Divide in Concord


The Siuslaw News is excited to once again partner with City Lights Cinemas to host a community-screening of the film, "Divide in Concord" on December 11th.

Divide in Concord is a feature-length documentary that follows the entertaining tale of banning bottled water in small town America.

In 1775, Concord patriots fired the infamous 'shot heard round the world' that began a Revolution and defined a nation. Now a local eighty-four year-old woman has waged another seemingly unwinnable battle. For three years Jean Hill has been trying to rid the town of single-serve plastic bottles of water. Complete with strong opposition from local merchants and the bottled water industry, Jean is once again leading the controversial crusade.

Two show times available 12:30 and 6:30pm. Admission for the film will be FREE. Admission tickets are required, limit two per person, and available starting November 17 at: City Lights Cinemas, 1920 Highway 101. Only 230 tickets available, first come, first served.

"Divide in Concord" is shown as part of Siuslaw News Green Film series, targeting important topics through innovative films and community discussion.
