FULTON, NY – The community is invited to watch a newly released movie at First United Church of Fulton, 33 S. Third St., on April 27 at 2 p.m.
Admission is free.
Popcorn and soda will also be served free of charge.
The community is welcome.
Due to copyright limitations we are unable to publish the name of this movie or the names of the actors.
One review covering this Oscar award winning movie states: “This movie isn’t the first movie about slavery in the United States — but it may be the one that finally makes it impossible for American cinema to continue to sell the ugly lies it’s been hawking for more than a century.”
It tells the story of an African American freeman, who in 1841 was snatched off the street in Washington, D.C., and sold as a slave.
It all adds up to a gripping portrayal of 19th century slave culture, a cruelty endured for 12 years by a man who was born free.
The rating is R for slave-trade violence.
The community is also invited to share in one evening Wills and Trusts Seminar led by Jerome Mirabito, executive vice president and secretary of Fulton Savings Bank, to be held at First United Church on May 1 at 7 p.m.
Basic information about wills and trusts will be discussed.
Refreshments will be served.
This seminar is free and open to the community.
No reservation is needed.
Both events are sponsored by the Older Adults Team of The Open Doors Neighborhood Center of the First United Church.
First United is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches, USA and the Presbyterian Church (USA).
The congregation is active in the greater Fulton community through the Greater Fulton Area Council of Christian Churches and other avenues of sharing.
The facility offers hearing assistance, and it is accessible to those who are physically handicapped.
Sunday worship takes place each week at 11 a.m.
