Manchester by the Sea
Friday - Sunday, March 10 & 12
Starring Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams & Kyle Chandler


An uncle is shocked to learn that he is obliged to return home to care for his nephew after his brother dies. This loss and revelation causes him relive his past, and the memories that caused him to leave his home town to begin with.

Manchester by the Sea is a real town on the north shore of Massachesetts. It was called Manchester until 1989, when resident Edward Corley led a highly controversial campaign to formally change its name to Manchester-by-the-Sea. The action was passed by the state legislature that year.

The screenplay for this film was featured in the 2014 Blacklist; a list of the "most liked" unmade scripts of the year.

According to an interview with Writer-Director, Kenneth Lonergan, the idea for the film didn't originate with him - the main core of a character going back home to take care of a family member after a death was pitched to Lonergan by Matt Damon and John Krasinski as a script that Lonergan would write and for Damon to direct. But due to scheduling conflicts with The Martian (2015), Damon couldn't direct the film or star in it (he was considered for the role of Lee that Casey Affleck was cast in.) Lonergan was then given free rein as a writer-director for the project, with Damon as producer.
