Free Bohm screenings of “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” Sept. 19 & 20

Join us at Albion’s Historic Bohm Theatre for a free screening of Everything Everywhere All at Once as part of the 2023 Common Reading Experience.

Screening 1
Tuesday, September 19
6:30 – 9pm with a 7pm start time

Screening 2
Wednesday, September 20
6:30 – 9pm with a 7pm start time

The concession stand will be open for purchases 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 superhero, and is the first Best Picture Oscar winning film depicting the lives of Asian Americans.
