So remember that great little film that I raved about a bit back that focuses on all of the health benefits that can accompany a plant-based diet? At that time it was only showing in Seattle, but since then it’s come to the City of Destiny as a result of the hard work and dedication of a few residents who really wanted other Tacomans to have the chance to see it.
The Grand Cinema opened “Forks Over Knives” last Friday, and I attended that evening with a few friends, lots of members of the South Sound Vegan Meetup Group and others and we practically filled the theater. Like last time, I heard many audible reactions to the film and saw people clap at the end after coming to so many new realizations about their current or past diets and eating habits.
I’ve already reviewed the film so I won’t say much about it again here, but I do recommend that if you didn’t get out to see it while it played in Seattle (or even if you did!) that you see it this week with friends, family and loved ones. Really, take anyone you care about. You will be achieving a win-win by doing so: learning some things to possibly benefit your health in addition to supporting your local independent movie theater.
For full schedule through June 23 and show times, check out the Grand Cinema’s website here.
If you’ve seen the film, did anything you learn strike you as particularly surprising or interesting?
