The community is invited to join the Astoria International Film Festival, the Lower Columbia Diversity Project and Indivisible North Coast Oregon for a special showing of the movie “Selma” at 2 p.m. Sunday, at the Liberty Theatre, in celebration of Martin Luther King’s birthday on Monday.

Following the movie, all are welcome to take part in a candlelight walk, starting at 4:30 p.m. Sunday at the corner of 12th and Commercial streets, just outside the Liberty Theatre.

The walk ends at the Blue Scorcher Baker and Café, where there is an informal discussion about the film and related issues. In addition, information is available about helping at a work party from 9 a.m. to noon Monday at the Astoria Warming Center.

For information, contact Janet Weidman at
