The Garde Arts Center is pleased to announce that Connecticut-based novelist Wally Lamb will host screenings of the entire six-episode HBO series, I Know This Much Is True, over three nights from September 21 to 23, 2022 at 7 p.m. on the Garde’s giant movie screen. On Thursday and Friday nights, Director Derek Cianfrance and actor Mark Ruffalo will join Lamb to host post-show discussions.

Tickets to each night range from $24-48 per person and are available at
I Know This Much Is True is an adaptation of the New York Times bestseller and award-winning novel by Norwich, CT, native Wally Lamb. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the premiere screening of the HBO limited series. The Garde is pleased to offer the first theater screening of the entire series, which follows the parallel lives of identical twin brothers played by three-time Oscar nominee Mark Ruffalo, in an epic story of betrayal, sacrifice, and forgiveness. The story is set against the backdrop of 20th-century America, inspired by the communities and characters of eastern Connecticut that have influenced much of Lamb’s work over the years. Ruffalo won an Emmy, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild award for his performance in I Know This Much Is True. The series is rated TV-MA and is intended for adults (Mature Audience; may be unsuitable for children under 17).
Tickets for episodes 1 & 2 on Sept. 21 are $24, and tickets for Sept. 22 and 23 are $48 each. Patrons who purchase tickets to all three nights and use promo code IKTMIT at checkout on will receive a 25% discount.  Each episode runs about an hour, and will be followed by live discussions with our hosts.  Doors open at 6 p.m.
