2011, 124 mins. Dolby Digital 3-D courtesy Paramount Pictures. Dir. Martin Scorsese. With Asa Butterfield, Ben Kingsley, Chloe Grace Moretz, Sacha Baron Cohen. Martin Scorsese’s new film Hugo is a vivid, cinematically breathtaking adaptation of Brian Selznick’s beloved graphic novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret, the story of a young boy who lives in a clocktower at a Paris train station and develops an unlikely friendship with film pioneer Georges Méliès. The film and the book are loving and enchanting tributes to early cinema. This very special evening begins at 6:00 p.m. with a book signing by Brian Selznick. In addition to The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Selznick’s acclaimed new graphic novel Wonderstruck will be available, along with his new book The Hugo Movie Companion, an intimate tour of the making of Scorsese’s film. Ages 12+
In the theater at 7:00 p.m., Selznick will make a presentation about The Invention of Hugo Cabret and the making of the movie, and then will participate in a discussion with screenwriter John Logan about the adaptation. Then there will be an exclusive advance screening of Hugo, presented in Dolby Digital 3-D.
