On April 4, 2017, nearly 200 art house cinemeas in 185 cities and in 44 states, plus five locations in Canada, one in England, one in Sweden, one in Holland, and one in Croatia, will be participating collectively in a one-day screening of the 80s movie 1984. This date was chosen because it's the day George Orwell's protagonist, Winston Smith, begins rebelling against his oppressive government by keeping a forbidden diary.

Reviews
A scary reminder of how easily totalitarian ideas and ideals crop up in societies and take fierce hold.
Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
What is remarkable about the movie is how completely it satisfied my feelings about the book; the movie looks, feels, and almost tastes and smells like Orwell’s bleak and angry vision.
