There will be a post show discussion with Mathematics professor Les Reid (MSU) the math behind code breaking then and now.

"Hidden codes, secret meanings and mixed messages pulse through the reliable, old-fashioned, buzzing copper wires of this true-life British period drama."
- Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"Strong, stirring, triumphant and tragic, The Imitation Game may be about a man who changed the world, but it's also about the world that destroyed a man."
- James Rocchi,
"So innately compelling is Turing’s story — to say nothing of Benedict Cumberbatch’s masterful performance — it’s hard not to get caught up in this well-told tale and its skillful manipulations."
- Scott Foundas, Variety
