Francees McDormand stars as Mildred Hayes in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" where she puts up a controversial message directed at the town's chief of police, played by Woody Harrelson.

Cinema at the State Theatre in Auburn presents "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" is a darkly comedic drama starring Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell.

After months pass without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (McDormand) commissions three billboards leading into her town with a controversial message directed at the town's revered chief of police (Harrelson).

When his second-in-command (Rockwell), an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement is only exacerbated.

The film took home the 2018 Golden Globes for Best Screenplay — Motion Picture, Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama, and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture.

Tickets are $8 and can be purchased at the box office, by calling 530-885-0156, or visit the website at http://www.livefromauburn.com.
