Across the Universe (2007) 

March 10, 2019 @ 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm

Tickets $5

Across The Universe is a fictional love story set in the 1960s amid the turbulent years of anti-war protest, the struggle for free speech and civil rights, mind exploration and rock and roll. At once gritty, whimsical and highly theatrical, the story moves from high schools and universities in Massachusetts, Princeton and Ohio to the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Detroit riots, Vietnam and the dockyards of Liverpool. A combination of live action and animation, the film is paired with many songs by The Beatles that defined the time.

Directed by Julie Taymor

Written by Dick Clement

Stars Evan Rachel Wood, Jim Sturgess and Joe Anderson
