Special screening of KING: A FILMED RECORD
- Monday, January 20 at 7:30pm
On Monday, January 20, in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, KING: A FILMED RECORD... MONTGOMERY TO MEMPHIS, an Oscar-nominated epic record of the Civil Rights movement's greatest leader, will screen at 7:30 only.
Taken entirely from news footage of the time, with no wrap-around musical score or omniscient narrator, the great speeches are shown, not as sound bites, but in their entirety, punctuated with literary excerpts read by luminaries including Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Ruby Dee, James Earl Jones, Anthony Quinn, and Charlton Heston in interstitials directed by Sidney Lumet and Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
Originally shown just once — across the country in hundreds of theaters in a single day — this unique record has been restored by the Library of Congress.
