Don't Miss "Of Mice and Men" on April 30th!

On Thursday, April 30th at 6:30pm in ECU's Estep Multimedia Center, ECUScreens will present the Broadway recorded-live production of “Of Mice and Men,” a play based on John Steinbeck's Nobel Prize winning story.

"Of Mice and Men" tells the tragic tale of two migrant workers, George (James Franco) and Lennie (Chris O'Dowd), who have dreams of buying their own farm during the Great Depression in California. This Broadway production, which was nominated for two Tony Awards®, also features the talents of Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) and Tony Award® winner Jim Norton (The Seafarer).

The Daily Telegraph states, "James Franco crackles with intensity. Chris O'Dowd is a revelation."

Independent calls it "A riveting, powerful production."

Tickets are available at the door prior to the screening. 
Free for ECU students (with ID). $5 for students. $10 for general admission.

Get Behind the Beautiful Forevers April 13th at 4:00pm

ECUScreens will be screening Behind the Beautiful Forevers, its next National Royal Theatre production, on Monday, April 13th at 4:00pm in ECU's Estep Multimedia Center.

Based on the book By Katherine Boo,  Behind the Beautiful Forevers tells the story of the people living in the Mumbai slums and their larger than life plans while the global recession and accusations within the slums threaten their ways of life.

Before and after the screening, ECU Rotaract Club will be selling snacks and telling about their 2015 International Project: raising funds to help the World Toilet Organization build restrooms in rural communities in India and Cambodia.

Come see the production that The Guardian refers to as "a triumph for David Hare and Meera Syal" and Time Out calls, "a brilliant, horrible and heart-breaking story. A window into the lives of India’s poorest."

Tickets will be available at the door prior to the screening: $10/General Admission, $5/Students, FREE for ECU Students (with ID).
