The Jersey City Free Public Library and Friends of the Loew’s are very proud to announce that we will host a joint screening of the film “1984” on Tues., April 4, 2017, 7:30 P.M., at the Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre in Jersey City, New Jersey.
The screening is part of a nationwide event taking place on April 4, with over 180 independent and art house cinemas presenting “1984” in support of the National Endowment for the Arts and other federally funded arts and cultural programs, such as the Institute for Museum and Library Services. In light of the threats posed by the Trump Administration’s recently published budget priorities to these and other essential programs, the JCFPL and FOL invite everyone to come and show support for our critical cultural institutions.
Tickets are $10 ($5 for students and seniors). The first 100 attendees will receive a copy of George Orwell’s “1984,” compliments of the Jersey City Free Public Library Foundation. Tickets may be purchased at Eventbrite (https://1984loews.eventbrite.com). All proceeds will benefit equally the JCFPL and FOL.
Immediately following the screening, we will host a panel discussion featuring local arts and community leaders, who will explore the challenges and possibilities for the arts in the coming years. Full details of the panelists will be confirmed and released soon.
