According to the IFC website, Moore is expected to attend the screening.
“See the film Ohio Republicans tried to shut down,” the website explains. “Oscar-winner Michael Moore dives right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show, deep in the heart of TrumpLand in the weeks before the 2016 election.”
The film’s theatrical run will open on Oct. 19.
