More Information

As part of our Community Picks Series, The Historic Grandin Theatre in partnership with Lugar Law, Blue Ridge Land Conservancy, Virginia Western, and Slovensky Law wants to invite you to a one-time screening of the film "LITTLE PINK HOUSE" on Tuesday, June 26 at 7:15 pm. This collaboration presents a relevant event in an effort to inform the community and to cultivate conversation about current events in the Roanoke Valley and New River Valley related to the use of eminent domain and pipelines. "Little Pink House" is based on the famous case of Kelo vs. the city of New London, Connecticut; a case decided by the Supreme Court of the United States involving the use of eminent domain to transfer land from one private owner to another private owner to further economic development. The film screening will be followed by a Q&A discussion from Justin Lugar, Gentry Locke Attorneys, and Diana Christopulos, Blue Ridge Land Conservancy. The film tells the story of a small-town nurse named Susette Kelo who emerges as the reluctant leader of her working-class neighbors in their struggle to save their homes from political and corporate interests bent on seizing the land and handing it over to Pfizer Corporation.
