Main St., at 5:30 p.m., followed by a panel discussion with producer Susan Saladoff, Concord attorney Chuck Douglas and Manchester attorney Maureen Manning, according to a news release from the New Hampshire Association for Justice.

Tomorrow's event is free; tickets can be reserved at or The movie opened at Red River on Saturday and will be shown through Thursday in paid screenings.
