Downtown Voices Coalition, Modified Arts and No Festival Required present “Malls R Us,” a documentary film by Helene Klodawsky.

“Malls R Us” examines North American’s most popular and profitable suburban destination – the enclosed shopping center – and how for consumers they function as a communal, even ceremonial experience and, for retailers, sites where their idealism, passion and greed merge.

The film will be shown on Tuesday, June 30 at 8pm at Modified Arts, 407 E. Roosevelt St. Admission is $6 but students with a valid I.D. receive $1 off.

  • Why are things like this not free?

    • Khamis, don’t you want to support artists like documentary film makers? Or local places like the Modified? They need the money.

  • Um, everything costs money. It’s $5. That’s not very expensive.
