Downtown Phoenix’s Civic Space Park is re-launching Community Cinema on the second Saturdays of every month!
On October 9th, the Civic Space Park will be collaborating with the local organizations to present Community Cinema. The park, at Central and Van Buren, will hold a free screening of the new film Reel Injun: On the Trail of the Hollywood Indian at 5:30 p.m. This premiere will mark the re-launch of Community Cinema in the park, taking place every Second Saturday of the month.
Following the film, viewers are invited to a Coffee Talk inside Fair Trade Café to discuss topics and ideas explored in the movie. On the Fair Trade patio, music will be provided by Ethan 103. With all band members reigning from Native backgrounds, this musical group breaks the traditional mold by providing a modern punk rock sound.
Who: Civic Space Park Collaboration
Where: Civic Space Park – 424 N. Central Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85004
When: Saturday, October 9, 2010 5:30p.m.-7:30p.m.
A downtown Phoenix street was shut down for several hours Monday night as police investigated a suspicious package found in the area.
Officers responded to the scene near 1st Avenue and Van Buren Street around 8:30 p.m. after reports that a large box was found sitting on Van Buren. Officials say the box raised suspicions after it was discovered to have some type of wires coming from inside.
Video from Air15 showed police vehicles blocking Van Buren from 1st to 3rd Avenue. Police reportedly evacuated surrounding businesses as a precaution.
Officials say a bomb squad unit at the scene investigated and detonated the device late Monday.
No injuries were reported.
The box was reportedly found in an alleyway behind Valley Metro headquarters. Phoenix police confirm they are looking into the possibility the scare may be connected to a current transit dispute.
