Gatton’s Schnatter Institute Hosts Film Showing April 26

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 24, 2018) — The Schnatter Institute for the Study of Free Enterprise at the University of Kentucky’s Gatton College of Business and Economics is hosting the showing of the movie, "The Little Pink House," 7 p.m. Thursday, April 26, at the Lyric Theatre and Cultural Arts Center in downtown Lexington.

"The Little Pink House" is the real-life story of Susette Kelo, who fought the condemnation and seizure of her home by the city of New London, Connecticut, all the way to the Supreme Court. Kelo contended that the condemnation and seizure of her home to provide additional land for a commercial development was unconstitutional.

Catherine Keener and Jeanne Tripplehorn star in the film. Tickets are $10 for the general public, with discounted price tickets available to student groups by contacting the Lyric.

A Q&A session will be held following the movie with the producers, Courtney and Ted Balaker, along with Kelo. The session will be moderated by John Kramer, vice president for communications for the Institute for Justice, based in Arlington, Virginia. The institute is a pro bono legal firm with the goal of defending Constitutional freedoms.
