Livingston Dems hosting film on Ruth Bader Ginsburg at Howell Theater
The life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, only the second woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, will be the subject of a movie being released in select theaters nationally this month. Livingston County Democrats are sponsoring a week-long run of the film in Howell.
RBG, by Magnolia Pictures, tells the life story of the justice who has developed a large following of fans based on her life-long record of fighting against sex discrimination. Despite her popularity, few know of the hardships Ginsburg met and conquered throughout her legal career, including having difficulty finding a job despite graduating tied for first in her class at Columbia Law School.
The film will be shown at the Historic Howell Theater, 315 E. Grand River Ave., Howell, from May 25-May 31, with showtimes at 4:15 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Tickets are $8 and may be purchased in advance from the party to help defray the cost of the sponsorship. The office will be open from noon to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Tickets may also be purchased at the theater before each showing.
