December 6 - Codebreaker DC Showing

The docudrama Codebreaker is set to play in Washington the on Thursday, December 6, 2012 7:30 PM at the AMC Loews Georgetown 14.  Tickets can be purchased on-line.                            

CODEBREAKER tells the story of one of the most important people of the 20th century.  Alan Turing set in motion the computer age and his World War II codebreaking helped save two million lives.  Yet few people have heard his name, know his tragic story, or understand his legacy.  In 1954, Turing committed suicide at age 41 after being forced to undergo chemical castration to “fix” his sexual orientation.  He left behind a lasting legacy and lingering questions about what else he might have accomplished if society had embraced his unique genius instead of rejecting it.

The US film showings are with TODpix that follows a "theatrical on demand" strategy where when 50 requests are made for a film they attempt to arrange it.  It is unclear if tickets can also be purchased at the box office.  The film will be available on DVD in 2013.
