‘Borat’ coming to the Smith

GENEVA — “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan,” Sacha Baron Cohen's film that won the Golden Globe Award for best actor in a comedy, will be screened at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3, Monday the 5th, Tuesday the 6th, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 4 at the Smith Opera House, 82 Seneca St.

The comedy, which also received an Academy Award nomination for the Best Original Screenplay, brings to the big screen Borat, an outrageous, gray-suited mustachioed television reporter from Kazakhstan.

Cohen as Borat cheerfully and inadvertently portrays his country as a backward, anti-Semitic tribal society while parodying our own ignorance and prejudices.

With a running time of 1:22 minutes, this shockingly hilarious satire that knows no bounds is rated R. Tickets are $5 general admission and $3 for students and senior citizens. For details, call (315) 781-LIVE or toll-free (866) 355-LIVE.
