The press will arrive at 5:30pm, with celebrities arriving at 6:30pm, and the screening begins at 7:30pm.

Celebrity guests include Angie Harmon, Allison Janney, John Malkovich, Jason Sehorn, and others.
Based on the true story of how Charlie Wilson, an alcoholic womanizer and Texas congressman, persuaded the CIA to train and arm resistance fighters in Afghanistan to fend off the Soviet Union.
With the help of rogue CIA agent, Gust Avrakotos, the two men supplied money, training and a team of military experts that turned the ill-equipped Afghan freedom-fighters into a force that brought the Red Army to a stalemate. However, the result also empowered the Taliban and terrorists including Osama bin Laden.
Opening in theaters on Friday, December 21, 2007, it was recently voted the tenth most anticipated upcoming movie in a recent poll by movietickets.com. You can check out the Information Page for the movie for more details.
