The Digital Gym Cinema may be closed for the time being due to COVID-19 concerns, but we are working with key distributors and studios to bring you DGC @ HOME, a “virtual theater” experience  featuring films we would normally program at our venue under normal circumstances. All you have to do is click on the purchase links below to have temporary access to our film programming. You can enjoy films from the comfort of your own home using your browser or the distributor’s app. This temporary solution ensures the sustainability of our beloved micro-cinema as a significant percentage of each purchase is passed on to us. Enjoy these amazing independent films and we hope to see you at the movies very soon!

 

John Lewis: Good Trouble

Using interviews and rare archival footage, JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE chronicles Lewis’ 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform and immigration. Using present-day interviews with Lewis, now 80 years old, Porter explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family, and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. In addition to her interviews with Lewis and his family, Porter’s primarily cinéma verité film also includes interviews with political leaders, Congressional colleagues, and other people who figure prominently in his life.

Immediately following the feature, there will be a pre-recorded discussion between Representative Lewis and Oprah Winfrey, filmed last month and being made available exclusively for virtual cinema and in-theater engagements of the film. This is a wide-ranging, informal, 16-minute conversation that’s a perfect follow-up to the documentary, and could not be more relevant.
