We are thrilled to be providing this opportunity for audiences to see it again, or for the first time, on the big screen; and to share the experience with their community,” said The Tree of Life producer Sarah Green. The Tree of Life is one of the most critically acclaimed movies of 2011, having received 14 awards from critics groups across the country and appearing on over 100 Top 10 lists, the most of any film released last year.
