— Director Tom Hooper brings the stage musical sensation Les Miserables to the big screen.
Based on Victor Hugo's monumental 1862 novel about a decades-long manhunt, social inequality, injustice and redemption, the film stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, and a large ensemble cast, all of whom were recorded singing live on camera.
Hathaway’s role as the wretched single mother-turned-prostitute Fantine, and her rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream,” captured in a single take, earned her a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress (and an Oscar nomination for the same).
Les Miserables is rated PG-13 and will screen Friday, Jan. 25; Thursday, Jan. 31, 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, N.Y. Admission is $9.50 ($8 admission on Mondays and matinees. $7 for children under 12 at all shows).
CineArt is a partnership between Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and the Callicoon Theater that promotes and screens independent, foreign, and art films.
A percentage of the profits and $1 per person from ticket sales benefit the programs and services of the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance, the Arts Council for Sullivan County.
