Actor Daniel Day-Lewis paid a visit to the Bantam Cinema on Saturday to discuss his role as Abraham Lincoln in the new Steven Spielberg film "Lincoln."

Movie-goers took in a showing of the film and afterwards participated in a question and answer session with Day-Lewis, who lives in Roxbury and was invited to the cinema by its owners, Sidney Koch, David Koch, Sheila Nevins and Betty Merz.

Day-Lewis arrived on a motorcycle. Before entering the cinema, he stopped at Woods Pit BBQ for a bite to eat with Sidney Koch, Nevins and Merz.

Inside the cinema, employees Sierra Markelon and Chelsea Hayward, both students at Litchfield High School, and Elizabeth McKenna of Morris got to meet Day-Lewis, who was friendly and accommodating to everyone he met.
