Although ProgressNow Colorado's Michael Huttner lived through a grilling by Fox News' Neil Cavuto, he likely made few converts among the cable net's mondo-conservative viewership. The Colorado branch of the American Civil Liberties Union is hoping for a friendlier audience for "Gitmo Revealed: An Evening of Film and Discussion," which takes place at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Starz FilmCenter, in the Tivoli. In addition to a screening of The Response, an offering described as "a courtroom drama based on the actual transcripts of the Guantanamo Bay military tribunals," two local attorneys who represent Gitmo detainees will talk about their experiences and the issue in general. Although there's no charge to watch the film, tickets ranging from $6 to $9.50 are required to attend the panel discussion -- but brews are included, thanks to a donation by Flying Dog Brewery. That should help the heavy subject matter go down much more smoothly. Learn more by visiting the "Gitmo" page on the Starz FilmCenter website or by calling 303-595-3456.
