Presented as a tribute to recently departed actor John Hurt (Alien, V for Vendetta, Hellboy), this screening of the 1984 adaptation of George Orwell’s seminal foray into science fiction has absolutely nothing to do with the nationwide protest of President Trump’s administration. That protest, specifically targeting Trump’s plan to cut the National Endowment for the Arts from the 2018 budget, as well as his administration’s Orwellian disregard for objective truth, also takes place at theaters across the country on Tuesday, April 4, but this screening at the Enzian is in honor of the acclaimed actor’s work – like the time he hooked Harry Potter up with a wand in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Ahem. Big Brother is watching you. Practice your doublethink.

6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 4 | Enzian Theater, 1300 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland | 407-629-0054 | enzian.org | $11
