St. Pete For Peace Finds Landing Spot at L Train

In conjunction with efforts to offer peace promoting services to the Tampa Bay area, the non-profit organization has announced a location, in downtown St. Pete, for its upcoming movie series.

Earlier this month, the St. Pete for Peace weekly movie series after new owners of the cafe thought the movies were offensive. 

Looking for a new home, St. Pete for Peace thought it had found a home in the outdoor courtyard at T and Me Tea Company in Gulfport, but that show never got started. 

Finally, starting next month, the weekly movie series found its final destination at L Train, 900 Central Ave. 

According to an email from the organization, the weekly films will be shown to “raise social consciousness.” Past films include, American: The Bill Hicks Story and Krisis. 

During the month of August the film series will be held at 7 p.m on Thursdays at L Train and starting in September every Wednesday. 

Since the L-Train is booked through the month of July, the films will begin the first week of August. Some movies on the agenda are, The Party’s Over and Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields. Dates and times for the films are to be announced on the organization’s website.

The L-Train is complete with a 43-seat theater and a bar for beer and wine. Food is not available, but guests are encouraged to bring their own, if desired. 

Right now, the group is looking to the public to decide when, on a weekly basis, to show the movies.

That looks like a cool place to show movies.

The L Train is the perfect spot for movies! The theater is great and the owner, Laura, is very cool.
