PVCC Fine Arts and Performance Season to Feature Free Screening of Jojo Rabbit - canceled

Charlottesville, Va. – March 5, 2020 – The Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) Fine Arts and Performance season will continue with “Free Movie Friday” on March 20, at 7:30 p.m., featuring a screening of the 2019 Oscar-winning satirical dark comedy “Jojo Rabbit.” The film will be shown in the Main Stage Theatre in the V. Earl Dickinson Building on the PVCC main campus in Charlottesville.

The film follows “Jojo,” a 10-year-old German boy growing up under the Third Reich. Beneath his dreams of becoming an Aryan war hero, Jojo is really a frightened boy who has lost everyone but his mother, who has a secret: she’s a covert anti-fascist who is hiding a Jewish girl in the attic. As it becomes clear that Jojo’s innate sensitivity will thwart his dreams of becoming a Nazi and as he strikes up a complicated relationship with the girl in the attic, Jojo starts to rethink his blind nationalism.

Jojo Rabbit is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for mature thematic content, some disturbing images, violence and language. Tickets to the film will be handed out, one per person, as the doors to the theatre open at 6 p.m. No advance tickets are available.

The PVCC Student Art Club sponsors the Free Movie Friday series on the third Friday of the month. Popular and critically acclaimed movies are shown free of charge on the big screen. For more information, contact Beryl Solla at bsolla@pvcc.edu or call 434.961.5362.

The V. Earl Dickinson Building is located at the south end of College Drive. Ample, free parking is available and the building is wheelchair accessible.
