'The Post' plays in Callicoon
CALLICOON, NY — The Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA) and Callicoon Theater will present Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” for two long weekends in February. The film is nominated for Best Picture and Best Actress Oscars.
“The Post” is a drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers—and their very freedom—to help bring long-buried truths to light.
Stephanie Zacharek of TIME magazine called it “a superhero movie for real grownups.”
“The Post” is rated PG-13 and will screen Friday, February 16 through Monday, February 19 and Friday, February 23 through Monday, February 26, nightly at 7:30 p.m., with matinees at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
The Callicoon Theater is located at 30 Upper Main St, Callicoon, NY. Admission costs $11 ($9 admission on Mondays and matinees) and $8 for children under 12 at all shows.
