Next week, Avondale Towne Cinema will host a pre-election screening, featuring films about voting and politics.

The theater is located at  106 N Avondale Rd, Avondale Estates, GA 30002.

The screenings will take place Monday, Nov. 5 from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. Two of the films that will play are short indie documentaries that “go behind the scenes to show how college students are handling today’s polarized politics in the South,” an event press release said.

The first of those two, “Come and Take It,” co-directed by Austin filmmakers PJ Raval and Ellen Spiro, follows a young University of Texas graduate behind a controversial protest against guns on campus. Targeting Texas’ “campus carry” law (which allows loaded handguns in public university classrooms), the protest called for demonstrators to brandish sex toys, which are illegal on campus.

Another film, “Fight for the First” directed by Sharon Liese, begins as fledgling reporters at the “Columbia Missourian” rush to report unprecedented student protests on campus, showing how journalists fight for their rights to report the truth on both local and national levels.

Additionally, the event will also feature a few other documentaries that look at political matters. The screening is free and open to the public, although there is limited seating available.
