This winter, George Orwell’s 1984 once again made the best sellers list, 68 years after its initial publication. On April 4th, movie theaters across the country — including Upstate Films — will be participating in a NATIONAL EVENT DAY screening of the ‘80s adaptation, starring John Hurt. On April 9th, Upstate will also partner with Oblong Books to present the film followed by a book group discussion. Both screenings will include a recorded introduction and post-screening discussion with director Michael Radford.
