Hysteria

This event is SOLD-OUT.  There may be a limited number of tickets released to the rush-line the day of the screening, 15 minutes before showtime.

Set in London in the 1880’s, at the height of Victorian prudishness, Hysteria turns the true story of inventing the vibrator into a cheeky romantic comedy. The terrific cast (Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hugh Dancy, Jonathan Pryce, Felicity Jones and Rupert Everett) brings a subversive air to the costume drama. “Hysteria” was the catchall diagnosis for inexplicable women’s issues. When a doctor develops an electric treatment, it sends sparks flying over questions of sex, medicine, class and conformity. Courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics.
