Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, May 5th at 7p for Secret Mall Apartment at the Somerville Theatre. Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.

Note: This is part of the Independent Film Festival Boston and is a local film, so it will likely be well attended. You may wish to buy tickets in advance.

In 2003, eight Rhode Islanders created a secret apartment inside the busy Providence Place Mall and lived in it for four years, filming everything along the way. They snuck in furniture, tapped into the mall's electricity, and even constructed a wall, smuggling in over 2 tons of cinderblock. Far more than just a wild prank, the secret apartment became a deeply meaningful place for its inhabitants--a personal expression of defiance against local gentrification, a clubhouse to coordinate artistic charity, and finally, a 750 square foot "F you" to The Man.
