Please join us for one of four special screenings of FENCES, which was nominated for four 2017 Academy Awards, including Best Picture. FENCES is the story of Troy Maxson, a mid-century Pittsburgh sanitation worker who once dreamed of a baseball career, but was too old when the major leagues began admitting black players. He tries to be a good husband and father, but his lost dream of glory eats at him, and causes him to make a decision that threatens to tear his family apart.
 
AWARDS: 45 Wins & 99 Nominations

ACCOLADES:

“This screen adaptation...stands as an aching, lyrical, performance-driven masterpiece in its own right, a film so intense and engrossing that movie houses really should screen it with an intermission.” – Village Voice
 
“It’s all too seldom that a feature film combines brilliant acting with a spellbinding flow of language.” – Wall Street Journal
 
“Even as it properly foregrounds Wilson’s dialogue — few playwrights have approached his genius for turning workaday vernacular into poetry — Fences is much more than a filmed reading. Mr. Washington has wisely resisted the temptation to force a lot of unnecessary cinema on the play.” – The New York Times
 
 
The Emelin Theatre is conveniently located in Mamaroneck, NY, with easy access to parking. Snacks and beverages are available.
