Cinematique Presents: “Dark Waters” w/Special Event

Join Us for a Special Event following Wednesday’s 7pm screening

WHQR Reporter Vince Winkel moderates a Q&A with Emily Donavan, co-founder of Clean Cape Fear, an alliance formed to protect water quality in the region.  Donavan has testified before Congress twice regarding DuPont/Chemours poisoning the drinking water supply for those downstream of the Fayetteville, NC Chemours facility. She recently participated in a Washington Post Live panel discussion with actor Mark Ruffalo and lawyer Rob Bilott. 
Please join us after the screening. No additional ticket/fee required.

Inspired by a shocking true story, a tenacious attorney (Mark Ruffalo) struggles to punish the DuPont chemical corporation for dumping toxic waste in West Virginia water where a dark secret connects a growing number of unexplained deaths. In the process, he risks everything – his future, his wife (Anne Hathaway), and his own life - to expose the truth.


“Issue-oriented movies aren't uncommon, but this essential drama feels starker and truer than most; it's patient, unafraid, and stripped of any kind of hollow self-congratulations.” Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
“Bilott's story is a serious one and demands a responsible retelling. Fortunately, Haynes finds a way to do so without mistaking such a weighty task as an excuse to be plodding or bone-dry procedural.” Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail

For ticket information, call the Thalian Box Office, Monday - Saturday, 2PM-6PM, 910-632-2285 or visit at 310 Chestnut Street. Advance ticket purchase available – no extra charge to purchase in advance by phone or in person at the Thalian Box Office. Tickets are also available at the Thalian Hall Website.
