CINEMA 10 Tonight


By Craig Thornton

Cinema 10 screens A Place at the Table on Monday, April 7, at the Roxy Theater in Potsdam.  

Show time is 7:15 PM-with special panel discussion to follow.

Since 1980, food banks have grown in number from 200 to 40,000, and hunger continues to rise in a country demonstrably capable of feeding all its citizens. Hunger is a crisis "our own government is ashamed of acknowledging," argues Jeff Bridges, actor and founder of the End Hunger Network, speaking in A Place at the Table. "If another country was doing this to our kids, we would be at war." The documentary pays tribute to the influential CBS program, Hunger in America, broadcast in 1960, which prompted Richard Nixon to declare an ultimately successful “war on hunger.” With facts and figures and, more compellingly, interviews with individual children and adults across the country, the film documents the reversal of that success. After the film, Gardenshare will lead a panel discussion on local hunger and food security issues.

A Place at the Table runs 84 min, is in English, and is rated  PG for thematic elements and brief mild language.
