1984: Special One-Day Screening
April 4th, 2017 – 8:00PM – Tickets here!

After The Atomic War the world is divided into three states. London is a city in Oceania, ruled by a party who has total control over all its citizens. Winston Smith is one of the bureaucrats, rewriting history in one of the departments. One day he commits the crime of falling in love with Julia. They try to escape Big Brother’s listening and viewing devices, but, of course, nobody can really escape…

The Hollywood Theater joins over 90 other movie theaters across the country in screening this relevant film classic on the same day that Winston Smith began his journal: April 4th.

A portion of all ticket sales from this special screening will be donated to the Dormont Public Library, who will also have a table in the lobby.
