Big Brother Is Watching At Garden Theatre With 1984
1984 presents a harrowing future in which a totalitarian government uses propaganda, brainwashing, constant surveillance, and torture to control its subjects. One of the most widely referenced and best-known fiction titles of all time, 1984 makes the dark implications of out-of-control state power feel urgent and real.
Winston remembers life before- before the wars and before Big Brother began watching. He has a simple yet deadly idea: to write a journal. In a world where every movement is monitored by the authoritarian government and the secret Thoughtpolice, writing is forbidden. Winston's act of recording the abuses of the government is met with fatal consequences.

Garden Theatre of Winter Garden celebrates its 11th anniversary during the 2018-2019 performance season. Originally built in 1935 as a single-screen cinema, the theatre was the first in Central Florida built for talkies and was a gathering place for locals to watch the latest newsreels and films of the day. The building was restored to its former glory in 2008, and the 295-seat Garden Theatre, with a current annual budget of $1.5 million, has grown to a performing arts center with extensive programming that includes professional live theatre, concerts, dance, special events, movies and a thriving year-round arts education program.
