Here are the US movie theaters screening '1984' in anti-Trump protest on Tuesday


On Tuesday, April 4, independent cinemas around the country will stand against Trump by screening 1984, the film adaptation of George Orwell's 1949 novel starring John Hurt and Richard Burton.

The iconic dystopian tale centers on Winston Smith, a government worker tasked with distorting history and facts — sound familiar? — who rebels against the tyrannical government by committing the crime of starting a diary. The April 4 screenings will mark the day Winston's diary entries began.

"Orwell's portrait of a government that manufactures their own facts, demands total obedience and demonizes foreign enemies has never been timelier," participating theaters said in a joint statement

"The endeavor encourages theaters to take a stand for our most basic values: freedom of speech, respect for our fellow human beings and the simple truth that there are no such things as 'alternative facts.'"

The April 4 screenings will also include a filmed introduction and post-screening interview with director Michael Radford, who will relay stories about the movie's creation and discuss how Orwell's novel remains relevant today, according to Variety.

A portion of the proceeds from each screening will go towards local charities and causes, the cinemas' statement notes.

Here are the independent theaters that will be screening the film throughout the United States. A listing of participating international cinemas can be found here.
