Denver legal investigators: Colorado Women's Bar Association screens RBG at Sie in Denver with all-star Colorado legal panel

The only reason I haven't seen "RBG," the documentary about Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsberg a second time is because of how much I enjoyed watching it the firsttime. Wouldn't it be a better idea to rewatch after I've seen her biopic, "On the Basis of Sex" starring Felicity Jones which premieres in December 2018?
Since discovering the Colorado Women's Bar Association (CWBA)'s upcoming "RBG" screening at Sie at the end of August, however, I am reconsidering. If I wait until after I see the biopic to see RBG a second time I will miss the amazing lineup CWBA has slated for their post-screening discussion on Monday, August 27th.
The screening takes place at Denver's Sie Film Center and will include a discussion moderated by Colorado Supreme Court Justice, Melissa Hart. Judge Sandra Rothenberg (Ret.), Senior Judge, Colorado Court of Appeal; Rep. Jessie Danielson (D), Legislator; Speaker Pro Tempore of the House; Colorado General Assembly; Denise Maes, Esq., Public Policy Director of the ACLU of Colorado and Professor Catherine Smith, University of Denver Sturm College of Law will serve as panelists. Whether you've seen the movie once, twice or three times already, it is unlikely you'll find a more dynamic discussion forum this side of the Mississippi than the one the CWBA has organized.
Directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen did a great job of looking at the roles support figures in her personal life play and characters ranging from her husband Marty to her personal trainer make entrances and exits that counterpoint the pivotal cases of her legal career trajectory.
Because of the high ticket price of $75 ($74 for film society members) I will still, most likely, have to skip out on this particular networking event, screening and panel discussion. In the price tag's defense, however, the money will go to support the organization's work in public policy. According to the website, public policy includes includes promoting women "As Lawyers," "On the Bench," "In the Legislature" and "In Our Community." Regardless of the merit's it may keep the program off limits to a lot of the legal industry support staff. If, like me you live on a tight budget and are already a Sie member, RBG plays at Sie through August 2nd and is only $6.00 for member matinees.
If, on the other hand, you find yourself craving pop corn, airco and legalistic edification in late August or you are an ambitious legal investigator, process server or legal admin looking for the vertical or lateral career opportunity, this may be the perfect close to your summer.
The screening takes place August 27th at 7:00 p.m. at 2510 East Colfax Avenue, Denver, CO 80206.
Cocktail reception at Sie Film Center's Henderson's Lounge starts at 5:30 on August 27th. Tickets are here.
