We’re happy to offer our DC readers the chance to attend a free early screening of Sam Mendes’ latest film, Empire of Light, starring Olivia Colman and Micheal Ward.
SYNOPSIS: From Academy Award®-winning director and writer Sam Mendes, EMPIRE OF LIGHT is a moving drama about the power of human connection during turbulent times. Set in and around a faded old cinema in an English coastal town in the early 1980s, it follows Hilary (Olivia Colman) a cinema manager struggling with her mental health, and Stephen (Micheal Ward), a new employee who longs to escape this provincial town in which he faces daily adversity. Both Hilary and Stephen find a sense of belonging through their unlikely and tender relationship and come to experience the healing power of music, cinema, and community.
The screening takes place on Monday, December 5th at 7:00pm at Landmark E Street. If you’d like to attend, RSVP at the Searchlight Pictures ticketing site here. Please remember all screenings are first come first served and you’ll need to arrive early to ensure seating. Enjoy the show!
