Screening Room: ‘1984’ Tonight

George Orwell started off Nineteen Eighty-Four this way:

It was a bright, cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.

That day was April 4.

So in a backhanded compliment to Orwell’s ability to portend, shall we say, certain aspects of the modern political climate, theaters around the country are screening Michael Radford’s movie adaptation tonight. Check out the participating theaters here.
