FREE and Fabulous!
It is not often that those two terms can coalesce around anything. So, when they do, I want to shout it from the rooftop. FREE and FABULOUS!! Cost-free and Compelling.
I hope to see you there, at our wonderful local CinemaSalem. In the Museum Place Mall at the intersections of Church St., St. Peter's St., Brown St. and New Liberty St. There is even validated parking in the Museum Place Parking Garage.
Just think, you could come to the Hawthorne Hotel before this event and have a wonderful breakfast in Nathaniel's OR you could come over to the Tavern on the Green afterwards for an excellent lunch in the Tavern OR you could stop by PEM and enjoy a lovely lunch in the Garden Restaurant.
Life is good!
FREE SCREENING - THE HUMAN SCALE
Sat. June 21, 10am at Cinema Salem.
THE HUMAN SCALE created a sensation during the Salem Film Fest 2014, and many in the audience commented we should bring back the Documentary for another screening to give people involved in Salem’s city government, and many of the volunteer boards involved in planning and development in the City, a chance to see the exciting and positive transformations of cities and spaces worldwide into sustainable and livable people spaces.
Sponsored by Cinema Salem & Salem Film Fest 2015
Cities have become the primary human habitat. In fact, fifty percent of the world’s population lives in urban areas. By 2050, it will be eighty percent. According to revolutionary Danish architect and urban planner Jan Gehl, if we are to make cities sustainable and livable for people we must re-imagine the very foundations of modern urban planning. Rather than examining buildings and urban structures themselves, Gehl and his team meticulously studies the in-between spaces of urban life – to the places where people meet, interact, live, and behave. Stunningly photographed, THE HUMAN SCALE travels around the world to explore how Gehl and other like-minded designers, city planners, and urban activists have begun to transform such cities as diverse as New York, Beijing, and London.
