It will be equality -- and free admission -- for all at a Monday showing of "Inequality for All" on the Carnegie Mellon University campus.

The documentary features Robert Reich, professor, author and Clinton Cabinet member, demonstrating how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. "Inequality" makes a passionate argument on behalf of the middle class through facts, infographics and family profiles.

Mr. Reich will be available after the screening by Skype to field questions from the Pittsburgh audience.

A reception, with pizza, will start at 5:15 p.m. in the adjacent lobby outside McConomy Auditorium where the documentary will play at 6:15 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Kathy Newman, a film and media studies professor in the English department at CMU, spearheaded the event being sponsored by a handful of organizations including CMU and the Make It Our UPMC campaign. Ms. Newman calls "Inequality" a funny, engaging and hard-driving film that addresses a problem that hits home in Pennsylvania.

"Inequality for All," rated PG for thematic elements, some violence, language and smoking images, runs 85 minutes.

New Date: "50 Shades of Grey" will now be released on Feb. 13, 2015, instead of Aug. 1, 2014, as originally announced. Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson will star in the adaptation of the best-selling novel.
