The non-profit Circle Cinema announced that an additional free screening on Thursday May 27, 7pm has been added for “Tulsa Burning: The 1921 Race Massacre in partnership with the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission. The first screening on Saturday May 22 sold out in just days as tickets were made available to Circle Cinema Members and community partners last week. Tickets for Thursday May 27 will be available to the public at no charge starting this Friday May 14 at CircleCinema.org
, with details about special pre- and post-film content soon.
Executive Produced by NBA super star Russell Westbrook for the HISTORY ® Channel and directed by Peabody and Emmy-Award winner Stanley Nelson and duPont-Award winner Marco Williams, the documentary takes an in-depth, sobering look at the tragic events of a century ago and focuses on a specific period, from the birth of Black Wall Street, to its catastrophic downfall over the course of two bloody days, and finally the fallout and reconstruction. The documentary will premiere on the HISTORY ® Channel on Sunday May 30 ahead of a summer Hulu release.
“We are thankful to our partners at the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission in helping create such incredible demand for this film,” said Circle Cinema Programmer Chuck Foxen. “As tickets sold out so fast for May 22, we approached the History Channel about a second screening and they were happy to give more Tulsans a chance to see this important documentary on the big screen.”
As Tulsa continues to commemorate the centennial of the Race Massacre, Circle Cinema is proud to offer additional events through June. Tickets for the following events are still available, many of which are free and open to the public. For more details, visit CircleCinema.org
