Tonight: Indiewire's Free Screening of the 'Margaret' Extended Cut With Kenneth Lonergan and Cast

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.

What: “Margaret” extended cut screening

Sorry to hear that Ash. The token "thank you" doesn't make things better, but not saying it is kind of like a "f— off and go home." Theaters really should start this practice of turning people away when there's clearly no more room, and letting like 10-15 people with slim prospects know what their odds are. I always have to ask employees who are doing a head-count, "Is it worth waiting?" and usually they'll oblige with a reasonable answer.


This was a bit of a bummer. Waited for 90 minutes and didn't get in. That's not a big deal, I know it was a free event, but there was no communication from the event staff or theater to those in line. They left 50 or 60 people hanging until 7:30, and after no updates about capacity or chances of getting in, they didn't even bother to give a "Thank you so much for coming, we're sorry it didn't work out." Knowing the history of this movie, it's not surprising, but it was a pretty crummy way for Fox to treat fans.


I'd love to see this Q&A, was it recorded at all?

Also – what format was the film screened in? Since the Extended version is only on the DVD I was kind of assuming this is what would be screened, but it would be interesting to know if there's a film or HD version out there…


It sucks you didn't do the live stream or post that it wasn't going to happen. Some of us wanted to see it.


The stream hasn't come up in the last 45 minutes….if you actually managed to tape it, how about putting it up on YouTube?


Also attending tonight: John Gallagher Jr., J. Smith-Cameron, Jeannie Berlin

There is also going to be a screening in Los Angeles next week at LACMA:


Edit: i LOVE new york


I live new york


I agree, bring this to LA. I saw the shorter cut at the Cinefamily here and although brilliant, I could still feel places where it felt truncated. One of the best movies of the last few years.


yes, please please please do this in LA!!!

Will screening be a projected Blu-ray or is it a 35mm/DCP print?
