Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Power House Movie screening of "Takeover" on Wednesday, March 2, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. The film is shortlisted for inclusion in the 2022 Academy Awards in the Documentary Short Subject category.
In 1970, a group of young Puerto Rican activists took over a decrepit hospital in New York City, launching a battle for their lives, their community, and healthcare for all.
"Takeover" explores the twelve historic hours on July 14, 1970, in which fifty members of the Young Lords Party stormed the dilapidated Lincoln Hospital in the South Bronx, drove out their administrative staff, barricaded entrances and windows, and made their cries for decent healthcare known to the world.
Reserved seating tickets ($15 adults, $10 students) are available online at www.phtww.org or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. This event will have a total runtime of about an hour.
