The Chytirio Theater in the down­town Athens district of Ker­ameikos is host­ing a free screen­ing of Michael Rad­ford’s “1984,” based on Ge­orge Or­well’s clas­sic novel about a dystopian fu­ture un­der an op­pres­sive regime and re­leased in the same year. John Hurt and Richard Bur­ton lead the cast in the story of a govern­ment em­ployee who loses his iden­tity in the process of rewrit­ing his­tory in a mat­ter that casts his coun­try’s lead­ers in a fa­vor­able light. His tra­vails re­veal how, in such a closely mon­i­tored so­ci­ety, there is no es­cape from “big brother.” Show­time is 8.30 p.m. and the film is in English with Greek sub­ti­tles.
