WASHINGTON — Senators have been invited to a star-studded screening of the film “Lincoln” at the Capitol, with Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis now slated to attend.

In a letter, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell invited colleagues and their spouses to a screening of “Lincoln” on Dec. 19, which will be held in the Capitol Visitor Center auditorium.

“We believe that viewing this film would provide all senators with a positive opportunity to gather and reflect during this holiday season,” Reid and McConnell wrote.

After the screening, which will include snacks and drinks for lawmakers and their guests, director Steven Spielberg and four of the film’s stars, including Daniel Day-Lewis, will participate in a question-and-answer session.
