Set for Tuesday, August 21, the screening will be followed by a Q&A with Olivier Award-winning director and choreographer Drew McOnie, Helpmann Award-winning set and projection designer Peter England, Helpmann Award-winning creature designer Sonny Tilders, and Global Creatures CEO Carmen Pavlovic, who are currently working on the upcoming Broadway production of King Kong.

The Q&A will be moderated by producer Dori Berinstein, who will lead the conversation about the property's fascinating transition from screen to technical marvel onstage.
