GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The Triplex Cinema and Great Barrington Public Theater announced a special
screening of the recent film "Freud's Last Session" based on the Mark St. Germain play that originally premiered in 2009 at the Barrington Stage Company. 
The filmed version of "Freud's Last Session" is written by St. German and Matthew Brown, who also directed the film. The St. Germain play was based on a famous series of Harvard University lectures by professor of
psychiatry Armand Nicholi, which Nicholi later turned into a book.
This event is the first collaboration and fundraising event between the Triplex and GB Public. The event includes a screening of the film, a talkback with Mark St. Germain and a food and drink reception to follow in the Triplex lobby. Party food will be prepared by Guidos, wine will be donated by Domaney's and desserts provided by Great Barrington Bagel. 
Tickets are $100 and can be purchased via the Triplex website (
According to a press release: 
Set in 1939 on the eve of the outbreak of World War Two in England, the film tells the story of a fictional meeting between Sigmund Freud and famed author and Christian theologian C.S. Lewis, who debate the existence of God, among other issues. The conversation imagines a spiritual coming together between the father of psychoanalysis, an atheist and man of science, and the theological Lewis, who later wrote The Chronicles of Narnia, among other works. Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins stars as Freud, alongside Matthew Goode, who plays Lewis.
