Los Angeles

Free Screenings of Food, Inc.

Thanks to eaterLA for the alert (and to Judi and Rob Bikel for spotting the news) that two free screenings (sponsored by Chipotle) of Food, Inc. are coming up:

July 14, 2009 at 7:30pm
Laemmle Playhouse 7 Cinemas
673 East Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena

July 16, 2009 at 7:30pm
Laemmle Sunset 5
8000 Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood

If you haven’t already seen Food, Inc., do take advantage of these opportunities. And if you have seen it, encourage your friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors to see it. As Corby Kummer noted in his review for The Atlantic, “There hasn’t been a film this important about American food production, and probably not about industrialized food anywhere.”

More information about the film is available on the Food, Inc. website, including a trailer and links to other reviews and news. Robert Kenner also appeared on yesterday’s episode of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, answering questions about why fast, cheap, and easy food isn’t sustainable:
