See ‘Bedlam’ at Alamo Drafthouse on March 31 and April 5

Join Alamo Drafthouse Phoenix and Arizona PBS for an advanced screening of the documentary “Bedlam.”

The screenings will take place at Alamo Drafthouse’s Tempe location on Tuesday, March 31 and at their Chandler location on Sunday, April 5. Reserve your seats here.

“Bedlam” filmmaker and practicing psychiatrist Kenneth Paul Rosenberg M.D. visits ERs, jails, and homeless camps to examine our national mental health crisis. Dr. Rosenberg follows the poignant stories of people grappling with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and other chronic psychiatric conditions, whose silence and shame often worsen the suffering.

Following the film, audience members will be invited to share their insights and provide feedback about the documentary directly to the filmmakers and “Bedlam” distributor ITVS via mobile survey.
