KINGSTON, N.Y. >> A free screening of the documentary “Newtown,” which focuses on the Connecticut community in the aftermath of the school shooting, will take place on Friday, March 16, at 7 p.m. at the Ulster Performing Arts Center, 601 Broadway, Kingston. 

The event will also offer an opportunity for attendees to further the conversation about gun safety reform during a post-screening panel discussion and question-and-answer session with the film’s director, Kim Snyder and panelists. 

The free event is hosted by Stockade Works in association with the Bardavon.

“Stockade Works is proud to be hosting this platform for the community through this thought-provoking documentary,” said Beth Davenport, Executive Director of Stockade Works, in a prepared statement.

“It is critical we do what we can to bring our community, and communities everywhere, to the table for an open discussion on gun safety,” said Mary Stuart Masterson, Stockade Works’ co-founder, in a prepared statement.
