Free advance screening of Martha Marcy May Marlene

The University of Toronto's Cinema Studies Student Union (CINSSU) continues its generous practice of occasionally offering free advance screenings of upcoming movies. They will be screening the Sean Durkin film Martha Marcy May Marlene which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year before going on to Cannes, TIFF and other major festivals.

It was announced earlier today that the 22-year-old star Elizabeth Olsen (younger sister to the Olsen twins Mary-Kate and Ashley) was named winner of the Best Actress award at the 38th Ghent Film Festival in Belgium.

To attend, you can pick up a pass from the CINSSU office at Innis College during office hours between 12-4pm on weekdays. Those without passes can still attend by joining a rush line on the evening of the screening. The rush line will then be let in after all the passholders have been seated.

The screening will take place this Sunday, October 23 at 7pm at Innis Town Hall, 2 Sussex Ave which is located at St. George St. between Bloor and Harbord.

You do not have to be a student to attend.
