KCRW Partner Screening: ‘Empire of Light’
December 6, 2022 • 7:30 pm PST
KCRW and Searchlight Pictures invite you to a special advance screening of Empire of Light.
Set in and around a faded old cinema in an English coastal town in the early 1980s, Empire of Light follows Hilary (Olivia Colman) a cinema manager struggling with her mental health, and Stephen (Micheal Ward), a new employee who longs to escape this provincial town in which he faces daily adversity. Both Hilary and Stephen find a sense of belonging through their unlikely and tender relationship and come to experience the healing power of music, cinema, and community.
