Reg Lenna To Show ‘Peter Rabbit’ And Political Satire ‘The Death Of Stalin’
James Corden voices the title character in “Peter Rabbit,” showing Friday at 7 p.m. and again as a sensory friendly showing Saturday, May 19 at 2 p.m. “The Death of Stalin” — from the creator of HBO’s sitcom Veep — shows Wednesday, May 23, at 7 p.m.
Admission to each film is $5. Both will be screened at the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts.
Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail. “Peter Rabbit” is rated PG and is 95 minutes long. During sensory friendly screenings, the sound will be lower and lights kept up higher to help patrons with sensitivity issues. Also, patrons may move around in the seats and talk during the screening without stigma.
The internal political landscape of 1950s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in “The Death of Stalin,” a new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci (HBO’s Veep). In the days following Stalin’s collapse, his core team of ministers tussle for control; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive. The film stars Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Monty Python’s Micheal Palin and Andrea Riseborough (Battle of the Sexes). The Death of Stalin is rated R and is 107 minutes long.
