Darkest Hour at the Missouri Theatre Dec. 21

November 26, 2017

We're opening the WWII film Darkest Hour, starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill, at the Missouri Theatre on Thursday, December 21.

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice, Atonement), DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill's courage to lead changed the course of world history.

"Gary Oldman hasn't done a deep dive into a character for years, but he makes up for lost time with a spectacular performance as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, rousing the country to fight the Nazis against all odds at the start of World War II."--Sara Stewart, New York Post
