In honor of the Council for a Livable World 50th Anniversary, we are hosting a free movie series designed to educate and entertain people interested in issues of nuclear weapons and global security.
In the six weeks leading up to our 50th anniversary celebration on June 6, we will be screening one movie each Thursday night starting at 6:00PM in the Council for a Livable World’s office conference room.
Guests of all ages are welcome to attend one, two or all six films. Be thrilled, chilled and amazed.
