This coming Saturday, March 23rd, 2013, the 10th anniversary of 'Bowling for Columbine' winning an Oscar, Michael Moore is hosting thousands of nationwide house parties to watch it – and asking all Americans concerned about gun violence to join him and a panel of activists online afterward for a discussion from New York City about where we go from here, and concrete steps to force Congress to stop taking orders from the NRA and start listening to us. For more, see his post 'Join Me to Kick Off a Mass Movement Against Gun Violence From Your Living Room'.
The New York screening of 'Bowling for Columbine' will start at 7:00 PM ET with the panel kicking off at 9:00 PM ET, but if you're in a different time zone you can watch the movie earlier or later; if you can't watch the panel live, video will also be available online immediately after it finishes.
Please join in! Setting up a party is easy:
STEP ONE: GET 'BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE'
'Bowling for Columbine' is available on DVD:

STEP TWO: INVITE YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS
The shooting in Newtown has affected and energized many of us, including some who haven't thought much about this issue before. Take a chance and invite family and friends who haven't always been political.
And if you're a member of MoveOn, USAction, Democracy for America, Progressive Democrats of America, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Progressives United, Moms Rising, Roots Action or other organizations working on gun violence, consider posting your event to the Facebook page of the local chapter of your group.
STEP THREE: GET TOGETHER AND WATCH THE MOVIE!
The screening of 'Bowling for Columbine' begins at 7:00 PM ET in New York City and runs 119 minutes. You may want to start watching it a little earlier, so that if you pause it at any point you'll finish at the same time as in New York.
STEP FOUR: JOIN THE DISCUSSION IN NEW YORK
After the movie, go to MoveOn.org at 9:00 PM ET and watch live video of the discussion with Michael and a panel of activists. To submit questions for the panel, tweet them during or after the film with the hashtag #BFCquestion.
