Watch a Movie: Looking for an activity to celebrate Earth Day, Monday, April 22nd? Attend a FREE screening of the movie BIDDER 70 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Silver Spring (UUCSS).
6:30 p.m. – Doors Open
7:00 p.m. – Screening Begins
Discussion immediately following the film

BIDDER 70 is an inspiring film about how one person can really make a difference. In 2008, then college student Tim DeChristopher stood up to the federal government when it tried to illegally auction off scenic Utah wilderness for oil and gas interests. It will make you angry, make you laugh, but most of all, it will inspire you. And did we mention the stunning cinematography featuring those scenic Utah landmarks that Tim protected? For more information about the movie and to watch its trailer, visit We hope you’ll join us!
