The Cook County Whole Foods Co-op is hosting another family movie night beginning at the What’s Upstairs Theater in Grand Marais.
Featured movies in this series will cover many topics such as the environment, globalization, sustainability, climate change, developing world, indigenous peoples, earth science, and children’s films. Admission is free for Co-op owners, $5 for others. Bring your own snacks.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the movie starts at 7 p.m. The theater is located at 301 First Ave. W.
What’s On Your Plate? is the next Co-op offering, set for June 26. It’s a witty and provocative documentary about kids and food politics. Over the course of one year, the film follows two 11-year-old multiracial city kids as they explore their place in the food chain. Sadie and Safiyah talk to food activists, farmers and storekeepers, as they address questions regarding the origin of the food they eat, how it’s cultivated and how many miles it travels from farm to fork. Running time is 76 minutes.
