7:30 pm – Spotlight (2015 Rated R), at The Grand Theatre, 308 St. Clair St. Tickets/$8. 352-7469

The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core, and resulting in the downfall of Cardinal Bernard Law. When the Boston Globe’s tenacious “Spotlight” team of reporters delves into allegations of abuse in the Catholic Church, their year-long investigation uncovers a decades-long cover-up at the highest levels of Boston’s religious, legal, and government establishment, touching off a wave of revelations around the world.
The New York Times called Spotlight a better account of tenacious journalism than All the President’s Men.

Nominated for 6 Academy Awards.  Spotlight stars Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber and many more.  Spotlight was also nominated for a SAG  Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.
