Eminent Domain Film Extends Its Run In Rome
The Downtown Hospital project has caused a lot of controversy and debate. Now, the threat of eminent domain looms for a few properties in the proposed hospital footprint.
Because of the controversy surrounding this project, a film being shown at the Captiol Theater has extended its run. The film titled, 'Little Pink House,' is about a resident of New London, Connecticut, whose property, as well as that of her many neighbors, was taken from her by the city in an eminent domain case.
The run of this film was slated to end on May 10th, but due to the significance of this film and the attention it has gained by the "No Hospital Downtown" group, they're adding two more showings.
'Little Pink House,' starring two-time Academy Award-nominee Catherine Keener, is rated R for occasional strong language, will be screening at Cinema Capitol (230 W. Dominick St. in downtown Rome) on Tuesday through Thursday, May 8 through 10, at 7:15 each evening. The added dates are May 11th and May 12th and will be shown at 1:00 p.m. The run time for the film is 98 minutes.
