The Cutting Hall Film Series brings movies to the big screen in Palatine at historic Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center, 150 E. Wood Street. A special Palatine Hometown Fest Presentation of the film "1776" will be shown on Thursday, July 4 at 7:00pm.

"1776" is the 1972 film version of the Broadway musical comedy of the same name. In the days leading up to July 4, 1776, Continental Congressmen John Adams and Benjamin Franklin try to coerce Thomas Jefferson into writing the Declaration of Independence as they attempt to persuade the American colonies to support a resolution on independence. As George Washing sends depressing messages describing one military disaster after another, the men in Congress all stand in the way of the Declaration, and a single "nay" vote will forever end the question of Independence.
