World-Premiere of Arena Stage’s Film “The 51st State”

On Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 7pm ET, screen the world-premiere of Arena Stage’s The 51st State. The film is inspired by the protests and the drive for the creation of a movement after the murder of George Floyd and the quest for the creation of the 51st state and sovereignty in Washington, D.C.  It is Arena Stage’s third film in four months.

For viewers in Washington, DC, watch the exclusive premiere of the film, while enjoying delicious fare from local restaurants and caterers, including Ben’s Chili Bowl and Hank’s Oyster Bar. Arena Stage’s Supper Club and films bring the communities together (virtually) to engage with artists and their original work.

With restaurants and catering partners in D.C., Maryland and Virginia, enjoy delicious fare delivered to your door prior to the start of the film. Each of our Supper Club Partners has carefully crafted select menu options for these events. A Supper Club purchase is not necessary to view the film. Learn more on the theater’s website.
