The 2023 Common Reading Experience is offering two free screenings of “Everything Everywhere All at Once” at Albion’s Historic Bohm Theatre. The first screening will be Tuesday, Sept. 19 from 6:30-9 p.m. The second screening will be Wednesday, Sept. 20 from 6:30-9 p.m. The film begins at 7 p.m. The concession stand will be open during these free public screenings.
The 2023 Common Reading Experience selection is a curated collection of easily digestible works centered on the theme of belonging, identity and self discovery. “Everything Everywhere All At Once” beautifully and chaotically wrestles with themes of immigration, mental health, parent-child dynamics, generational trauma and the impulse many of us have to question what our lives might look like if we had made different choices. This film is notable for casting a middle-aged Asian American woman in the role of a superhero. It was the first film depicting the lives of Asian Americans to win the Oscar for Best Picture.
