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.
Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, Whose Streets? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the national guard descends on Ferguson with military-grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance. Filmmakers Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis know this story because they are the story. Whose Streets? is a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting, not for their civil rights, but for the right to live.
