“Urbanology” film series explores the design of cities

OKCMOA Newsroom

Attention loyal NoLandGrab readers in Oklahoma City: here's the perfect way to kick off your weekend.

The Oklahoma City Museum of Art, in collaboration with the Urban Land Institute of Oklahoma, presents five new films that explore the effects of urbanization on modern life. The film series runs June 21-24, 2012, and will conclude with a panel discussion about Oklahoma City’s urban development. All screenings will take place in the Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s Noble Theater.

Battle for Brooklyn provides an intimate look at the very public and passionate fight waged by the residents and business owners of Brooklyn’s historic Prospect Heights neighborhood, who are facing condemnation of their property to make way for the polarizing Atlantic Yards project, a massive plan to build 16 skyscrapers and a basketball arena for the New Jersey Nets. Battle for Brooklyn screens Friday, June 22 at 8pm followed by a Skype Q&A with director Michael Galinsky.
