Now Playing: British Comedy Wicked Little Letters starring Olivia Colman!

Easter Sunday March 31 @ 7pm

This a “screening only” of Jesus Christ Superstar on Easter Sunday, presented by the Cinema Society of Kingston. To see the film accompanied by a talk & discussion, check out Jesus Christ Superstar (1975) + Talk with Dr. Richard Ascough on Saturday March 30 at 3:30pm.

Adapted from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Broadway rock opera, “Jesus Christ Superstar” recounts the last days of Jesus Christ (Ted Neeley) from the perspective of Judas Iscariot (Carl Anderson), his betrayer. As Jesus’ following increases, Judas begins to worry that Jesus is falling for his own hype, forgetting the principles of his teachings and growing too close to the prostitute Mary Magdalene (Yvonne Elliman). After Jesus has an outburst in a temple, Judas turns on him.
