Moving Places: Streetcar City

Film Screening- Moving Places: Streetcar City

Cleveland once boasted one of the largest electric street rail networks in the country. But the streetcars that once graced Public Square largely disappeared from the city by the 1950s. What happened? Follow a violent uprising in the Streetcar Strikes of 1899, the transformation of Tom Johnson from streetcar magnate to progressive mayor, and see the relics of the city’s streetcar system still around us.

The free screening will be followed by a discussion with the film’s director, Brad Masi.
