From Carnegie Award-winning author Patrick Ness comes a bold cinematic experience beyond imagination. Todd Hewitt lives on the distant planet of New World--a new hope for humanity until struck by 'The Noise,' a virus which inflicts immersive visions of ones' every thought. The cacophony drives many mad until Todd makes a hidden, silent discovery: there is a girl named Viola, who may be the key to unlocking New World's many layered secrets. Together, the two unlikely companions are forced on a white-knuckle adventure into an unexplored planet -- trying to escape and hide in an environment where all thought is heard, all movement seen --as they both discover the truth about the lives they left behind and the spectacular world they've learned to call home.

LIBERTY THEATER'S ANNUAL APPEAL UPDATE 3/26
Thanks to All-in-WA, all their donors and the Seattle Foundation, for $31,320 in matching funds for the donations our donors made through Blue Mountain Community Foundation in December!
We are financially stable, thanks to donations, grants, and CARES funds, despite facing extra COVID costs and prolonged theater closure. We still expect reduced audience sizes, probably for many months, even after we reopen. We expect to depend more heavily on donations this coming year because our ticket income and concessions income will be much reduced.
Annual Appeal donations are considered unrestricted and will usually all be used for Operations.
