Chorley Empire Community Cinema presents a classic tale of friendship and turmoil with a special theatre screening in the run-up to Christmas.
Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee James Franco (127 Hours, Milk) and Tony Award nominee Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids, Girls) star in the hit Broadway production Of Mice And Men, filmed on stage by National Theatre Live.
This landmark revival of Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck’s play is a powerful portrait of the American spirit and a heartbreaking testament to the bonds of friendship.
Of Mice and Men is directed by Tony Award, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circles award winner Anna D. Shapiro (Broadway’s August: Osage County) and features Leighton Meester (Country Strong, Gossip Girl) and Tony Award winner Jim Norton (The Seafarer).
The production was nominated for two Tony Awards, including ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play’ for Chris O’Dowd.
The Wednesday, December 23, showing is a delayed screening at the cinema, based at Chorley Little Theatre.
It starts at 7pm and the running time is two hours and 25mins including 25-minute interval (which includes a backstage feature).
Tickets are £12 (£10 for concessions, or £8 for cinema season ticket holders and CADOS members or season ticket holders).
Tickets can be bought on the door or in advance from Malcolm’s Musicland on 01257 264362.
