Columbus Underground is excited to announce that in partnership with the Gateway Film Center, locals can participate in the political process through the screening of the 2020 Presidential debates. Each free-to-attend event will include not only the screening, but also panel discussions, expert analyses and active conversations.

“Bombarded with information in our 24-hour news cycle, it is important to have spaces where we can slow down and talk to one another about the issues,” stated Gateway Film Center President Chris Hamel. “The cinema has always been a place for political commentary — our public screenings of the presidential debates maintains this important legacy.”

The next screenings take place on Tuesday, July 30 and Wednesday, July 31. Doors open at 7 p.m. for drinks and casual networking with the screening starting at 8 p.m. sharp.

Tuesdays candidates include Marianne Williamson, Tim Ryan, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke, John Hickenlooper, John Delaney and Steve Bullock.

Wednesday’s candidates include Michael Bennet, Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Bill de Blasio, Tulsi Gabbard, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Jay Inslee and Andrew Yang.

Additional debate screening event details will be published on the CU events calendar.
