This Saturday, February 20, at 6pm, the Lincoln Theatre will host a FREE, one-time screening of Marching Band, a documentary that captures the spirit of the 2008 Presidential election through the young and talented students of the University of Virginia and Virginia State marching bands.

While the film centers around the Obama campaign, politics is not the focal point. The film really tells the story of these two collegiate marching bands, the kids who love playing music and marching, and their experiences of the change facing their country and themselves.

After the screening, there will be a reception featuring some of the best organizations in D.C., where attendees can learn how to make change in their own neighborhoods and get further involved in the D.C. community. There will also be a Q&A with co-directors and producers Annie Miller and Helena Cotinier.

This is a ticketed event and seats are limited, so visit to get your complimentary ticket and if you’ve got some extra $, donate it to the Lincoln Theatre, so other local community members can attend the screening.

Below, get a sneak peak of the documentary by watching the Marching Band trailer.
