Second Showing of 15th Ward Documentary Tonight

The red carpet premiere of “Syracuse’s 15th Ward and Beyond” began with a reception Saturday, May 22, at Syracuse Stage’s Storch Theater. And if you missed the opening, you’ll get a second chance to see the historic film May 27.

No reservations will be taken for the Thursday showing; it will be first come first served.

The film was made as part of the South Side Initiative Office’s Black History Preservation Project’s Historic Bus Tour.

The May 27 showing will begin at 7 p.m. at ArtRage Gallery, 505 Hawley Ave. The screening is free and open to the public.

Also, the public will be able to view snippets from the documentary at the South Side Film Festival starting Friday, July 9, and every Friday evening thereafter until July 30. The South Side Film Festival is located at the Key Bank parking lot at the corners of East Colvin and South Salina streets. Films begin at 8:30 p.m. each evening.
