The Braumart has partnered with Magnolia Pictures to bring you new movies with a virtual screening series that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home! 50% of the revenue from your online rental goes directly to help support The Braumart, and helps cover operating costs while we are closed.
Magnolia is offering three documentaries exclusively to virtual cinema partners that speak strongly to systemic inequity – I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO, WHOSE STREETS?, and TONI MORRISON: THE PIECES I AM. These particular films are perennial tools for engaging and educating. Therefore, instead of the standard 72-hour transactional VOD rental period, you can own these films in perpetuity when you click the “BUY TICKETS” button. Again, once purchased, the files never expire. Magnolia is also offering a bundle of all three titles for $15, exclusive to virtual cinema. Click "BUY 3-MOVIE BUNDLE" to learn more. This pricing is good through June 30.
Virtual cinema offerings can be enjoyed on your computer or tablet, but you can also connect your computer to your TV for a larger screen experience! Not sure how to do that? Here's a video walkthrough of the process, and a trouble-shooting page that can show you how: click here.
In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends-Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript. Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin's original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.
