'RBG' Documentary at Uptown Theatre

Join us for a viewing of 'RBG,' the new documentary exploring the amazing life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who lost her mother at the age of 17.

Storyline: At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans - until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg's exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.

$12 per person. Tickets have been pre-purchased and will be available at the theater prior to the show on Friday, May 4th.

Reserve/purchase a ticket!
