Plimouth Cinema to kick off fund-raiser

Academy Award-winning actor and Kingston boy Chris Cooper will be at Plimoth Plantation on April 5 for a screening of last year’s Oscar-nominated film “August: Osage County.” Afterward, Cooper will participate in an exclusive meet-and-greet and question-and-answer session to raise money for projection equipment at the Plimoth Cinema in Plymouth. Cooper, who won the Oscar for best supporting actor in 2003 for “Adaptation,” plays the role of Charlie Aiken in “August.” The film stars Meryl Streep and Julia
. At Plimoth, WGBH’s Jared Bowen will emcee the event, which
begins a 30-day Kickstarter campaign aimed at raising $48,000 for a digital projection system. Plimoth Cinema plays foreign films, documentaries, and films produced outside of Hollywood.
