The Center Stage Theater will host a free advance screening of "Napoleon" on Sunday, Nov. 19 at 2 p.m.
Doors will open at 1 p.m., and tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
"Napoleon," which is rated R and has a running time of 158 minutes, takes a personal look at Napoleon Bonaparte's origins, and his swift, ruthless climb to emperor viewed through the prism of his addictive, and often volatile, relationship with his wife and one true love, Josephine. The cast features Vanessa Kirby, Joaquin Phoenix, Ludivine Sagnier, Rupert Everett and Mark Bonnar.
The film has a release date of Nov. 22, so this is a great opportunity to see a first-run movie before it hits theaters.
Because this is an advance screening, cell phones will not be allowed inside the theater. The use of any recording device in the theater is strictly prohibited, and the unauthorized recording of copyrighted material is illegal.
"Napoleon" is not the only showing at the Center Stage over the weekend. The theater will also show "Killers of the Flower Moon" on Friday, Nov. 17 at 6:30 p.m. The movie is rated R and has a running time of 206 minutes.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Lily Gladstone, Jesse Plemons and Tantoo Cardinal, the film is set in 1920s Oklahoma. When oil is discovered under Osage Nation land, the Osage people are murdered one by one until the FBI steps in to unravel the mystery.
Tickets for "Killers of the Flower Moon" are free for Liberty Card holders, $5 for adults and $4 for children.
Concessions will be available for purchase at both movies, and are sold at a significant discount compared to other theaters.
