Remembering the work of John Hurt.

On April 4th, 2017, movie theatres across the country will be participating collectively in a NATIONAL EVENT DAY screening of the film 1984 (starring John Hurt who, sadly, just passed away). This date has been chosen because it’s the day George Orwell’s protagonist Winston Smith begins rebelling against his oppressive government by keeping a forbidden diary. We hope that through nationwide participation and strength in numbers, these screenings will galvanize people to come together at the crossroads of cinema and community to foster communication and resistance against current efforts that undermine the most basic tenets of our society.
John Hurt and Suzanna Hamilton are lovers trapped in an oppressive police state who heroically fight against the all-powerful "Big Brother." Director Michael Radford's adaptation of George Orwell's classic novel perfectly captures the book's deep sense of unease, and Richard Burton gives a great late-career performance as an evil but human government official.
