Synopsis

Straight from the Broadway stage, Fathom Events (Cineplex Events in Canada) and Disney Theatrical Productions are thrilled to bring the Tony Award-winning musical NEWSIES to US cinemas nationwide in an exclusive three-day event on February 16, 18 and 22 (February 19 & 23 in Canada). Filmed live on stage, this high energy show stars original Broadway cast members Jeremy Jordan as "Jack Kelly," Kara Lindsay as "Katherine," Ben Fankhauser as "Davey" and Andrew Keenan-Bolger as "Crutchie." They're joined by members of both the Broadway and North American Tour ensembles, filling the stage with more "newsies" and more dancing than ever before.

Set in New York City at the turn of the century and based on a true story, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged "newsies," who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike and take a stand for what's right.
