The Harris Theater is a landmark building at 809 Liberty Avenue in Downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's Cultural District. The 200-seat theater is owned and operated by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. Built as Art Cinema, it was the first Pittsburgh venue to show only "art movies." Currently closed due to the Coronavirus, we are now presenting "The Harris Theater @ Home," where we offer curated new films for sale online that we would have otherwise been bringing you exclusively at the cinema. By purchasing Mossville, you are supporting the Harris and the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust when we need you the most. Thank you, stay safe, and we'll see you at the Harris as soon as we can!

Mossville, Louisiana: A once-thriving community founded by formerly enslaved and free people of color, and an economically flourishing safe haven for generations of African American families. Today it’s a breeding ground for petrochemical plants and their toxic black clouds. Many residents are forced from their homes, and those that stay suffer from prolonged exposure to contamination and pollution. Amid this chaos and injustice stands one man who refuses to abandon his family’s land - and his community. Twitter: @MossvilleDoc // Instagram: @MossvilleFilm // Facebook: @MossvilleProject
