Central Cinema Cinesthesia presents Being There (1979)

Meeting Room 302
12/06/2018 - 6:30pm to 8:45pm

Directed by Hal Ashby (Harold and Maude, The Last Detail), this satire of American society features Peter Sellers as gardener Chance, who has been employed by the wealthy owner of a Washington D.C. townhouse his entire life, and educated only by what he has seen on television. When his employer dies, Chance wanders the streets and encounters a powerful businessman who mistakes him for a high-society gentleman, whose knowledge of gardening is mistaken for clever political acumen.
