To commemorate Veterans Day in Santa Barbara, The Jurkowitz Center for Community Engagement is pleased to partner with the Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation to screen Thank You For Your Service, the second installment of the “Movies That Matter with Hal Conklin” Film Series, on Friday, November 10, 2017 at 7:00pm.

The Granada Theatre is pleased to welcome any veteran or active military personnel attending in uniform free admission to the film.

Thank You For Your Service is an American documentary that focuses on the real life stories of U.S. soldiers’ struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as they adjust to everyday life away from conflict. The documentary features, among others, William Rodriguez, a Santa Barbara native, who shares his struggles in returning from war.  

Tickets are $10 or $20 and are available through The Granada Theatre’s Box Office – please click here to purchase or call the Box Office at (805) 899-2222. Admission is free for any active or veteran military personnel attending in uniform. 

The Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation is committed to honoring the men and women who have served in U.S. military efforts. PCVF does this by supporting veterans and active duty members, families, and related partner organizations, in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties as well as preserving military history and legacy. The Foundation works to uphold Pierre Claeyssen’s vision that those who have served are “Never Forgotten.”  PCVF is funded entirely by private donations. To volunteer, donate and find out more about PCVF, visit or call (805) 259-4394. 

A Jurkowitz Center for Community Engagement initiative, this season’s “Movies That Matter” further develops and spotlights community collaboration by featuring a local partner organization paired with each film.  Representatives from these partner organizations will participate in a Q & A discussion, moderated by Conklin, about important themes from each film. Each film in the “Movies That Matter” Film Series has been carefully selected by Hal Conklin for their ability to touch the soul and draw out the best in humanity. These stories teach about forgiveness, loving others, and loving ourselves, and provide a renewed enthusiasm for living life with compassion and grace.
