Movies: Selma  Details:This film is the story of a movement. It chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. This film tells the real story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history. – Showtimes: 12:00 pm, 3:15pm, 7:30pm, 9:30pm- Where: Ark Lodge Cinemas 4816 Rainier Avenue South South Seattle, WA 98118  – More Info:
