CPA, Greenhills society co-sponsoring world premiere of 'green towns' film this Friday

Cincinnati Preservation Association (CPA) and the Greenhills Historical Society are co-sponsoring the world premiere of "Green Towns USA: A New Deal" on Friday ay 7:30 p.m. at the Sharonville Fine Arts Center, 11165 Reading Road.

Focusing heavily on the community of Greenhills, the 56-minute film explores the three "green towns" built during the Great Depression and how all three are fighting to solve the modern problems of urban sprawl, affordable housing and livable communities.

Chicago filmmaker June Finfer and co-producer Glory Southwind, a Greenhills native, will be in attendance.

Admission is $5, and refreshments will be served.
