Live from Traverse City, director Larry Charles will join us for a special screening of “The Dictator.” In Charles’ latest outing, Sacha Baron Cohen plays everyone’s friendly neighborhood dictator, Admiral General Hafez Aladeen, who finds himself working in a New York vegan co-op and wooing its eco-activist manager (Anna Faris) after falling victim to a kidnapping plot. Needless to say, hijinks and cultural misunderstandings ensue in this outrageous and off-color comedy. Leave your political correctness at the door for an evening that pushes the boundaries of comedy.


In Person: Director Larry Charles and actor Kevin Corrigan.
