Coolidge Corner Theatre to Honor Jane Fonda
Acclaimed actress Jane Fonda will be coming to town next month to receive an honor from the Coolidge Corner Theatre.
The former Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe winner will be the latest recipient of the Coolidge Award which, according to the theatre’s website, is “a celebration honoring a film artist whose body of work is recognized as consistently original and challenging.” Former winners include Meryl Streep, Viggo Mortensen, and director Jonathan Demme.
The ceremony will take place at the Coolidge Corner Theatre on Sunday, January 31. In addition to accepting the award, Fonda will be participating in two special events during her big day.
The festivities kick off at 12 p.m. with a screening of her latest film, Youth, followed by a Q&A session with the audience. At 8 p.m., Fonda will take part in an in-depth discussion about her historic, on-screen career.
Leading up to the ceremony, the theatre will also be holding screenings of some of the actress’ top films.
Tickets to the events go on-sale Thursday, January 14 and are available at coolidge.org.
