Great, something happy to watch at this time in history. For those of you who want to feel what it's like to have no joy in your life. Relentlessly sad but important film. The feel good movie of 1984.
Less than one month into the new presidential administration, theater owners collectively believe the clock is already striking thirteen. Orwell's portrait of a government that manufactures their own facts, demands total obedience, and demonizes foreign enemies, has never been timelier. The endeavor encourages theaters to take a stand for our most basic values: freedom of speech, respect for our fellow human beings, and the simple truth that there are no such things as 'alternative facts.'
