V For Vendetta (Final Screening)
9:10pm - Sunday, Nov 8, 2020
"Remember, remember, the fifth of November..."
In 2006, Alan Moore's cult-classic and politically-minded, subversive graphic novel 'V for Vendetta' hit the big screen with an electrifying script courtesy of THE MATRIX's Lana and Lilly Wachowski and a memorable turn from a freshly-shorn Natalie Portman. It goes without saying that director James McTeigue's highly-stylized, dystopian sci-fi thriller is best viewed on our big screen.
**Please note: This screening includes an extra featurette with 13 minutes of bonus materials.
Set in London, England in the aftermath of a world war, the city has turned into a police state occupied by a fascist government. A masked, caped, and highly articulate vigilante known only as V (Hugo Weaving) uses terrorist tactics (hence the Guy Fawkes mask, a direct nod to one of Britain's own rebels) to fight the oppressors of the world in which he now lives. When V saves an unassuming young woman named Evey (Portman) from the secret police, he discovers an ally in his fight against England's oppressors. With John Hurt, Stephen Fry, Stephen Rea, and Rupert Graves.
"Just when we were ready to give up mainstream movies as brain-dead,along comes the controversial and gleefully subversive V FOR VENDETTA, a piece of corporate-sponsored art that will have audiences rooting for a bomb-throwing anarchist." (New York Post)
"Whether you're mindless or Mensa, you'll find stuff here to challenge and trouble you, the way a good piece of speculative fiction should." (TIME Magazine)
