Free Screening of “Bully” scheduled at Colusa Theatre

Community Advocates for Parents and Children (CAPC) and the Colusa Theater will sponsor a ‘free’ showing of the film “Bully” at 7 p.m. on  Friday, Aug. 17 at the Colusa Theater.

This is a totally free event including viewing the film, and snacks. “We are suggesting people arrive early,” said theater manager Dave Bishop. “We expect to fill to capacity, which is about 380 people.”

Bishop said he and theater owner Mike Wilkerson are very excited about being a part of this event, and giving back to the community. “This is an exceptional film that everyone should see,” he added.

In the powerful new film Bully, director Lee Hirsch takes an intimate look at how bullying impacts the lives of five kids and their families. Lee and his team spent one year filming and were given permission to be “flies on the wall” to capture what was happening in our schools.

Organizers of the event commented that the film is rated PG-13 for thematic violent interaction and strong language from kids.

It is a film intended for parents, youth, school personnel, sports coaches and youth mentors.
