Into The Wild

The 1996 Jon Krakauer non-fiction work based on the true story of Christopher McCandless is finally coming to the big screen after 10 years in the making. Adapted and directed by Sean Penn, the film has received great reviews after initial screenings in Toronto and should easily be one of the best movies this fall.

The guest list does not guarantee seating, just admission if there is still seating available, so arrive early!

"Into the Wild" tells the true story of Chris McCandless (Emile Hirsch), a graduate of Emory University who drops law school plans, gives his savings to charity, rids himself of his possessions, and spends 2 years wandering the continent, rebelling against society's draws of fame and fortune to experience life and search for himself on his way to Alaska. He arrived in Alaska in April 1992, and spent 113 days in the Alaskan wilderness, living in a bus, before succumbing to the elements. His story and journey were recreated by Jon Krakauer in 1996 in the book of the same name. Into The Wild stars Emile Hirsch, Marcia Gay Harden, William Hurt, Jena Malone, Catherine Keener, Brian Dierker, Vince Vaughn, Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Stewart, and Hal Holbrook.
