NAACP, Capitol Theatre to host Census, film event


The Rome Branch NAACP and Capitol Theatre will host a 2020 Census event and outside movie night at the Capitol Theatre, 220 W. Dominick St., on Sunday, Sept. 20. The event starts at 7 p.m.

For area residents who have not already done so, there will be an opportunity to fill out 2020 Census and voter registration paperwork.

In addition, the documentary film “John Lewis: Good Trouble,” civil rights activist and congressman John Lewis will be shown outside in the Capitol Courtyard, according to the NAACP announcement.

The event is free to the public and limited to 50 people due to COVID-19 safety measures, the announcement said.

The documentary is hailed as a “celebration of the ageless octogenarian, tracing his activism from key moments in the civil rights
movement of the 1960s through his efforts
today to preserve and protect Americans’
ability to vote,” according to the Capitol
Theatre’s website.

“Director Dawn Porter’s film is an intimate homage to both the legend and the man, as spry and lively as Lewis himself,” the Capitol adds.
