Join KCTS 9 and Community Cinema Seattle for a free, exclusive pre-screening of For Once in My Life at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma.

For Once in My Life is the story of a unique band of singers and musicians, and their journey to show the world the greatness – and killer soundtrack – within each of them. The 28 band members have a wide range of mental and physical disabilities, as well as musical abilities that extend into ranges of pure genius. In a cinema vérite style, the film explores the struggles and triumphs, and the healing power of music, as the band members' unique talents are nurtured to challenge the world's perceptions.

This Community Cinema screening will be close captioned for the hearing impaired, and our panel discussion will be ASL interpreted.

For Once in My Life will air Tuesday, 2/1, at 10:00 p.m. on the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens on KCTS 9.
