The most recent film version of 1984, released in the same year as the title, is going to be screened for one night as part of a special nationwide engagement on April 4th.
The 84' movie release of Orwell's book was originally produced by MGM but it is unclear what company or organization is responsible for the re-release distribution. At least two of the Maine screenings are donating a portion of the money collected to the ACLU of Maine.

Center Theatre (Dover-Foxcroft) - 9:00 p.m.
