On April 4, George Orwell’s protagonist Winston Smith begins rebelling against his oppressive government by keeping a forbidden diary. In remembrance of John Hurt, who died this past January, and in unison with over 140 other independent movie theaters across the country, the 1984 film adaptation of 1984 will be presented on the big screen. In 1984, the world is divided into three vast states, whose inhabitants are dominated by all powerful governments. Winston (John Hurt), a government bureaucrat whose job is rewriting history and erasing people from existence, starts an illegal love affair with Julia, and becomes the target of a brain-washing campaign to force him to conform.
