Network (Digital) @ 5th Avenue Cinema | Free Popcorn, 1976 Satiric Look at Television News, Free Admission for Portland State University Students

Network (Digital)
All Ages
More info: 5thavecinema.com

Network (Digital)
Dir. Sidney Lumet (1976); USA, 121m
Starring: Faye Dunaway, William Holden, Peter Finch

FRIDAY, APRIL 26TH AT 7:00PM & 9:30PM
SATURDAY, APRIL 27TH AT 7:00PM & 9:30PM
SUNDAY, APRIL 28TH AT 3:00PM

Conceived, written, produced and released during the ongoing Watergate crisis, Network was Chayefsky’s meticulously researched, highly articulate attack on the demoralisation and dehumanisation of American life as exemplified by the crude commercialisation of television news. (The Guardian, 2015) Network centres on a once celebrated network anchor, the unhinged Howard Beale (Peter Finch), who, once struck with his notice, announces his plans to commit suicide in protest the following week. Instead, Beale’s increasingly wild performances on air make him a nationwide hero, a spokesman for inarticulate rage and a visionary, who encourages his frustrated audience to shout his slogan (and collective truth) from their windows: “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!”
