Past Event
L.A. Poverty Department hosts free movie screenings with free popcorn, free coffee & free conversation, every first and third Friday of the month. At the Skid Row History Museum, LAPD screens movies about issues that are important to its Skid Row and downtown community. This time it's Sean Baker's Oscar-nominated The Florida Project. Set on a stretch of highway just outside the imagined utopia of Disney World, The Florida Project follows 6-year-old Moonee (Brooklynn Prince) and her rebellious mother, Halley (Bria Vinaite), over the course of a single summer. The two live week to week at the Magic Castle, a budget motel managed by Bobby (a career-best Willem Dafoe), whose stern exterior hides a deep reservoir of kindness and compassion.
