Citizen Jane Film Screening

***Please note - the date of this event has changed to Wednesday June 26th due to unfavorable weather***

The City of Somerville Historic Preservation Commission and Union Square Main Streets have teamed up to host a screening of Citizen Jane: Battle Cry for the City.

This historic documentary depicts the life of Jane Jacobs, the woman widely celebrated for reshaping the way we as Americans look at, live in and experience cities. Her contributions carry so vibrantly that the entire world honors her with Jane’s Walks - an annual festival of citizen-led walking conversations the first week of May each year.

The City will host this year’s Jane’s Walk in Winter Hill and Gilman Square area: “Past, Present and Future” on Sunday May 5th. To learn more & sign up visit:

This is a free event and attendees of all ages are welcome. RSVP here and share the Facebook event page with friends and neighbors.

This screening will be hosted in the courtyard of Remnant Brewing. It may be chilly, but Jane would urge us to bundle up, gather together, and screen on!
