The Historic Smoot Theatre
West Virginia University at Parkersburg and the Historic Smoot Theatre will host a showing of “Milk” on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 6:30 p.m.
Forty-year-old Harvey Milk gains focus as a gay rights activist in San Francisco, which turns to political activism as Milk sees he can be a more effective voice for the gay community as a politician. In 1977, Milk becomes the nation’s first openly gay man elected to a public office, but he must fight a statewide initiative that bars gays and their supporters from public school jobs.
A panel discussion will follow the film.
Tickets are free to WVU Parkersburg students with a current, valid student ID and $5 for the general public.
