We’re on a roll to bring you some great screenings in the weeks ahead!

Join us NEXT THURSDAY for the last in our series of films presented to you in partnership with Lowell’s Green Building Commission.

Curitiba, Brazil, is a model city of the future. It is known internationally for its progressive transportation system, social services, and environmental practices. Our next film screening, A Convenient Truth: Urban Solutions from Curitiba, Brazil, will showcase first-hand the planning, the progress, and the politicians behind one of the world’s most admired urban sprawls.

We’ll close out our Green Building Series by screening this documentary at none other than Tabocas Brazilian Steakhouse, Lowell’s newest mealtime hotspot. Savor the flavors of Rodizio-style service (all-you-can-eat comes right to your table) featuring traditional Brazilian cuisine. It’s truly one of our favorite Lowell dinnertime gems!

Visit Tabocas Steakhouse at www.tabocassteakhouse.com.
Learn about Rodizio.
And come join us on Thursday, June 18 at 7PM at Tabocas for a green, green, Brazilian-themed, dinner-and-a-movie event. We’ll continue to pass along more info about this very special screening as next week approaches!
