Theaters Plan To Show ‘1984’ Film Because…You Know…Trump, Or Something

In this age where everything is a protest against Trump, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that about 200 theaters across the country and in other nations plan to show the film version of George Orwell’s 1984 as – you guessed it – a global protest against the Trump presidency.

The “Global Screening Day” protest involved cinemas not only here in the States, but in Canada, Croatia, Sweden, and the UK, according to The Hill – who, interestingly enough sourced Al Jazeera for their report. Dylan Skolnick, co-director of the Cinema Arts Centre on Long Island, and Adam Birnbaum, director of film programing at Connecticut’s Avon Theatre Film Centre are the organizers of this brave protest.
