We’re happy to offer our DC readers the chance to attend a free early screening of Three Thousand Years of Longing. The romantic fantasy by director George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road) stars Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba.
SYNOPSIS: Dr Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) is an academic – content with life and a creature of reason. While in Istanbul attending a conference, she happens to encounter a Djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom. This presents two problems. First, she doubts that he is real and second, because she is a scholar of story and mythology, she knows all the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong. The Djinn pleads his case by telling her fantastical stories of his past. Eventually she is beguiled and makes a wish that surprises them both.
The screening takes place on Tuesday, August 23rd at 7:00pm at Regal Gallery Place. If you’d like to attend, simply RSVP at the United Artists ticket site here. Please remember all screenings are first come first served and you’ll need to arrive early to ensure seating. Enjoy the show!
Three Thousand Years of Longing opens on August 26th.
