“The Majestic” pay-what-you-can film screening
May 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
In celebration of May’s National Preservation Month, the historic Franklin Theatre presents “Pay What You Can” showings of the 2001 movie about “The Majestic” – a historic movie palace that gets restored and helps return joy to a small town. Before the screening, discover the fascinating history of the success, decline and rebirth of The Franklin Theatre from the Heritage Foundation of Williamson County team.
(Synopsis) In this Frank Capra-esque drama set during the 1950s blacklist, a young, ambitious Hollywood screenwriter (Jim Carrey) loses his job and his identity, only to find new courage, love and the power of conviction in the heart of a small town. Carrey’s character suffers amnesia and is mistaken for a soldier presumed dead in the war. Directed by Academy Award nominee Frank Darabont (The Green Mile; The Shawshank Redemption).
