Screening of `Admission’ March 21 Will Benefit Housing Initiatives of Princeton

admissionPrinceton area movie goers can see the film “Admission” the night before its national release, join in a discussion with the producer after the screening, and support a good cause at the same time.

The Princeton Garden Theatre will be screening the film at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 21. Tickets can be purchased online for $30. The event benefits Housing Initiatives of Princeton, a local organization providing transitional housing and supportive services to families in the Princeton area community who are either homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Jean Hanff Korelitz, author of the 2009 novel the film is based on, will attend the screening and participate in a question and answer session with film producer Caroline Baron, actor Travaris Spears, and other special guests.

The movie stars Tina Fey, Paul Rudd, Michael Sheen, Lily Tomlin and Sonya Walger. Some scenes for the film were shot in Princeton in July.

In the movie, Fey is portraying the character Portia Nathan, an admissions officer at Princeton who visits an experimental high school in New Hampshire and is caught off guard when co-founder John Halsey, played by Paul Rudd, turns out to have attended college with her.
