Please join us for our next Mount Baker Meaningful Movie event at the Mt. Baker Community Club on Thursday, March 31st. Doors open at 6PM and the movies will start at 6:30. This is a FREE event and all are welcome. Worried about dinner? Mioposto is right next door and the community club allows food to be brought in. Still feeling hungry? We will have snacks.

We will be screening MOMENTA and BOMB TRAINS. These beautifully filmed, award winning movies explore the risks of fossil fuel transportation by rail in the Pacific Northwest. Did you know that rail cars filled with explosive crude oil pass by our sports stadiums and under our city every day? People around the country are standing up and speaking up about the risks posed to our children and our communities by the dangerous transport of fossil fuels. Please join us for an hour long movie presentation followed by a speaker from 350.org and time for discussion.
