Let's all watch a documentary about a controversial public housing complex

Posted By on Thu, Feb 9, 2012 at 2:38 PM

Local wonks — especially those who enjoy debating whether the demolition of Atlanta's public housing hurt or helped the city and its residents living on low incomes — won't want to miss Cinefest's screening of "The Pruitt-Igoe Myth," a documentary about the controversial St. Louis housing complex that devolved into a hotbed of crime and poverty. The film is showing until Sunday, Feb. 12.

Georgia State University students, faculty and staff are admitted free with their Panther ID. Tickets for non-GSUers are $3 for shows before 5 p.m. and $5 after 5 p.m. Quick note: Cinefest says there will be no 7 p.m. screening tonight.
