Ikeda Center Launches Movie Nights!

The Ikeda Center hosted its first ever Movie Nights event on Friday, June 21. In her welcoming remarks, Anri Tanabe explained that Movie Nights extends the open-hearted spirit of Dialogue Nights, which is for university students and young professionals, to intergenerational gatherings of people. As with Dialogue Nights, the goal of Movie Nights is to promote dialogue on matters of immediate, contemporary interest. The first Movie Nights feature was State of Pride, a new documentary directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman that features the YouTube star Raymond Braun traveling to various gay Pride celebrations around the US, large and small, to get a sense for where the LGBTQ movement is today, fifty years after the momentous uprising at the Stonewall bar in New York City in 1969.
