9500 Liberty and Annabel Park at Harkins Valley Art This Weekend


The ground-breaking immigration documentary 9500 Liberty enjoyed a sold-out premiere at the Harkins Valley Art last week.

You missed it? Good news. Special screenings will be held today, Saturday and Sunday (May 7-9) at the Valley Art, 509 S. Mill Avenue in Tempe, hosted by director Annabel Park.

Tickets and showtimes are available here. The movie will screen at additional Harkins locations this weekend, with Q&As from the movie's producer and Eric Baylor, Park's co-director.
