In an ongoing partnership with Facets Multimedia, we are thrilled to bring you an intimate screening of the 1984 award-winning drama telling the riveting story of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

About the Film: Winner of 8 Academy Awards and 4 Golden Globes, Amadeus tells the story of one of the greatest composers of all time. The film is directed by Czech film director, actor, and screenwriter MiloŇ° Forman, written by Peter Shaffer, and adapted from Shaffer's stage play Amadeus (1979). Starring Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham as Antonio Salieri and Tom Hulce as Mozart this pair creates a moving and dramatic piece of envy, conflict and the glorious gift of music. Salieri, Mozart's peer and rival, brings to life some of the greatest moments of Mozart's career through memories and confessions. Featuring intricate sets, costumes and of course Mozart's music this film is critically acclaimed as one of the best movies of all time.
