The King

Followed by a Q&A with
co-writer/director David Michôd

Hal (Timothée Chalamet), wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape. Now the young king must navigate the palace politics, chaos and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life — including his relationship with his closest friend and mentor, the ageing alcoholic knight, John Falstaff (Joel Edgerton).

RSVP Cancellation Policy & Three Strikes Rule

We understand that unplanned issues can come up and you may need to cancel your attendance at an event. If that happens, you must provide adequate notice of your cancellation or else you will incur a late-cancellation penalty.

For all screenings or events, unless otherwise specified, you must cancel at least 24 hours prior to the beginning of the event to avoid a penalty.

Cancellations must be made by email to; phone cancellations will not be accepted.

After missing three screenings without sending a cancellation notice to within the defined window, you will be notified that you have been placed on a three-month hiatus from attending WGAE events.

Please note that is your responsibility to track your reservations and strikes. You will only be notified upon your third and final strike that you have been placed on hiatus.

Our priority is ensuring that our programming is robustly attended and accessible to all members.

We hope this policy will enable us to better serve the needs of all members.
