‘1984’ National Screening – United State of Cinema

Join the Capital City Film Festival alongside 100+ art house movie theaters across the country in the United State of Cinema – a special screening of the film 1984 (trailer) based on the 1949 novel by George Orwell.

The protagonist Winston Smith (played by John Hurt who passed away in January 2017), begins keeping a forbidden diary on April 4th, thus the chosen date for the National Screening Day. Participating theaters and organizations believe that the proposed elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts is an attack on creative expression and free speech.

WHEN: Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 7pm, the evening before the seventh annual Capital City Film Festival begins

WHERE: Lansing Public Media Center, 2500 S. Washington Ave, Lansing MI

TICKETS: $10 (buy here), or included in the 2017 CCFF all-access pass (buy here). Spread the word on Facebook (here).

Drinks and snacks will be available for purchase.

Proceeds from this special screening will benefit Creative Many and the Refugee Development Center.

Co-hosted by Renegade Theatre Festival, Williamston Theatre, Arts Council of Greater Lansing, Lansing Art Gallery, and Creative Many
