Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in “The Post,” a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks). The pair race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets about the futility of the Vietnam War that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. However, the Post's plans to publish their findings are put in jeopardy with a Federal restraining order that could get them indicted for contempt. Now, Graham must decide whether to back down for the safety of her paper or publish to bring long-buried truths to light and fight for the Freedom of the Press.

Featuring an acclaimed ensemble cast including Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, and Zach Woods, “The Post” is rated PG-13 for language and brief war violence and runs 1 hour, 56 minutes.

Admission prices are $4 for all ages and $2 for current 2017-2018 PCAA members presenting a valid membership card.
