The Coolidge Corner Theatre was chosen by Sundance Film Festival USA to present the world premier of "The Company Men" Thursday, January 28 at 7 pm. Director and screenwriter John Wells will screen his drama - filmed on location in Boston - about three company men attempting to survive a round of corporate downsizing while trying to fend off its effects on their families and their identities. The stellar cast includes homeboy Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Maria Bello, Harvard grad Tommy Lee Jones, Massachusetts resident Chris Cooper, and Rosemarie DeWitt.
Tickets will be available online at www.coolidge.org and at the Coolidge box office, located at 290 Harvard Street in Brookline, beginning January 4 for Coolidge members and January 6 for the general public.
About Sundance Film Festival USA
The Coolidge is delighted to be one of only eight theaters selected nationwide to take part in Sundance Film Festival USA, a groundbreaking initiative designed to take the Festival experience to local art house audiences who support independent film throughout the year, and to stimulate conversation about the art of filmmaking. Sundance Film Festival U.S.A is designed to both entertain audiences and to highlight the ability of art, specifically film, to introduce new concepts, challenge ideals and spur debate.
On January 28, eight filmmakers and their films will be dispatched from Park City to cities across America, for the first time providing audiences the opportunity to experience screenings direct from the Festival in their home town art houses and to engage in live conversation with Festival artists. An introduction video featuring Robert Redford and highlights from the Festival will precede the screenings. Selections for films and filmmakers traveling to the eight cities will take place shortly after the programming announcement in December. All films will be selected from the official Sundance Film Festival program.
