Box office be damned: After its long-delayed theatrical release, Kenneth Lonergan’s “Margaret,” has found a loyal, if not rabid, fanbase. That’s why the Blu-ray package includes a DVD that features an 186-minute extended cut, which is due for release tomorrow, July 10. Thanks to Indiewire and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, New York “Margaret” fans can see it on the big screen today, a day before it hits shelves. The best part? The screening’s free.
Here’s the details. The film starts at 7pm July 9 at the Sunshine Theater (143 Houston Street). Lonergan will introduce the film; following the screening, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner (“Angels in America”) will moderate a Q&A with Lonergan and select members of the cast. UPDATE: Mark Ruffalo and Matthew Broderick have been confirmed to take part.
In case you can’t make it and/or don’t live in New York, you can watch a live streaming of the Q&A below, starting at around 10pm.
Tickets are first-come-first-serve; get there plenty early to guarantee a seat.
