Movie Night at the Dixie: Mossville

Thursday, Mar 5, 2020 - Thursday, Mar 5, 20206:30 pmDixie Center for the Arts, 212 N Vienna St, Ruston, LA 71270http://bit.ly/2Hd61VY

Mossville, Louisiana is a shadow of its former self--a community rich in natural resources and history, founded by formerly enslaved people and free people of color--where neighbors lived in harmony, insulated from the horrors of Jim Crow. Today, however, Mossville no longer resembles the town it once was. The community struggles to let go of their ancestral home--and at the center of it all is a man named Stacey Ryan. Ryan is 49 years old and a lifelong resident of Mossville. In the past ten years, Stacey has lost much of his family to cancer and has seen the neighborhood he grew up in demolished to make way for Sasol's new multi-billion dollar project. He experiences these changes from the view of his parents' home, a FEMA trailer smack in the middle of where the new Sasol facility is being built.--and he refuses to leave. Come to the movie and find out for yourself Stacey Ryan, and indeed the town of Mossville's fate! 


Each film begins at 7pm.

Buy your tickets at the Dixie Center for the Arts before the show - 212 N. Vienna St. in Ruston. Doors open at 6:30PM.
