Anna Paquin in "Margaret." Fox Searchlight.
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.
