clockworkorangebookmans2_1previewBookmans Entertainment Exchange spends each September raising awareness of the dangers of censorship, taking a stand for the idea that silencing a work just because it is controversial is wrong. To celebrate the campaign this year, the chain of used media stores — with locations in Phoenix and Mesa as well as Flagstaff and Tucson — is hosting a free screening of the controversial cult classic A Clockwork Orange, 8 and 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25, at MADCAP Theaters in Tempe.

The 1971 film by Stanley Kubrick and starring Malcolm McDowell is an adaptation of a 1960s dystopian novel by Anthony Burgess. It will be shown in its original 35mm format.
