New home for St. Pete for Peace film series

Posted By on Wed, Jul 18, 2012 at 11:08 AM

One week ago, a screening of American: The Bill Hicks Story got St. Pete for Peace's longtime film series canned at its former location, Cafe Bohemia. The story raised concernsin the local community over the future of the film series and the downtown area as a whole. St. Petersburg has a gap, yet to be filled, for a funky coffee shop allowing late-night meetings of the minds.

St. Pete for Peace's film series has secured a new location at the L Train in St. Petersburg starting the first week of August. Originally, T & Me Tea Company asked to host the series on their outdoor patio. But the owners at the Art Village Courtyard, a part of T & Me, reviewed some films and stated the films weren't "appropriate".

The L Train is located at 900 Central Avenue in Suite 25 B. St. Pete for Peace sent an email to members about the ups and downs of securing a location.

"The good news is that there were plenty of other places that enthusiastically offered to host our films, so we had many other great locations from which to choose," the email said.

The L Train has a 43-seat indoor theater lounge that serves beer and wine. There is no food available but patrons are welcome to bring their own.

"Laura, the owner, is very warm and friendly and fully approves of our message!" St.Pete for Peace stated.

The day of the week and time could possibly change but nothing has been confirmed yet.

"It’s been a bit of a bumpy road, but The L Train is an outstanding and fun space, and we’re very excited to team up with Laura every week. "
