Today (June 28th) marks the 41st anniversary of the Stonewall riots, a series of demonstrations held after an early morning police raid at the Stonewall Inn, a New York City gay bar. The uprising is often regarded as the kick-off to the modern-day gay rights movement. It's the reason most cities hold their gay pride events in late June.

A new documentary — Stonewall Uprising — chronicles the 1969 raid and subsequent demonstrations as told by Stonewall patrons, journalists, and a cop who led the raid. The film opened in limited release to select cities, like New Orleans and Atlanta, this past weekend.

Memphis wasn't chosen for the limited release kick-off, but a Malco representative informed us that Memphis may get the film when it becomes available to other cities. Currently, there are no scheduled screenings here for Stonewall Uprising.
