The much-anticipated film Darkest Hour starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill will be officially released to theatres on 22 November 2017. Attendees of the 34th International Churchill Conference will be treated to an exclusive preview screening during the conference on 10-12 October 2017 in New York City.

Darkest Hour portrays the early first premiership of Winston Churchill in the spring of 1940. France and the low countries were collapsing and the British Empire was left on its own to face the Nazi threat. This exclusive screening will take place on the evening of the first day of the conference following a reception at the Essex House Hotel.
