3rd Street: Best Seats in the House tells the stories of African-American patrons of The Paramount Theater and their personal experience of the formerly segregated 3rd Street Entrance and Box Office prior to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. A light is shined on the previously untold stories and experiences of local Charlottesville residents, who were made to use the segregated Entrance and Box Office in accordance with the law. The film will share a personal reflection on topics such as structural racism, the implementation and execution of Jim Crow Laws, and racial segregation through the experiences of Charlottesville community members.
