The Human Scale made it’s debut at this past Salem Film Festival and now it is back for an encore. This Saturday we will be having a FREE screening at 10am. You can get your pass at our box office now!

If you didn’t get a chance to see what the movie or see read what it was all about here is a synopsis:

50 % of the world’s population lives in urban areas. By 2050 this will increase to 80%. Life in a mega city is both enchanting and problematic. Today we face peak oil, climate change, loneliness and severe health issues due to our way of life. But why? The Danish architect and professor Jan Gehl has studied human behavior in cities through 40 years. He has documented how modern cities repel human interaction, and argues that we can build cities in a way, which takes human needs for inclusion and intimacy into account.
