The Kamloops Film Series returns Thursday with its winter season lineup and a new film on at Paramount Theatre every week at 7 p.m.
First up this Thursday is The Bookshop, a U.K. drama telling the story of Florence Green opening up a bookshop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough in Suffolk — and the unexpected opposition she faces.
On Jan. 24, catch Tea with the Dames, a documentary featuring legendary British actors Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Joan Plowright and Eileen Atkins. The four reflect on decades of memories from their time on screen and stage.
American film Beautiful Boy will play Jan. 31. Director Felix Van Groeningen tells the story of teenager Nicholas Sheff, a model student and son who falls prey to the power of addiction as his father tries to save him.
Oscar Wilde is the subject of a film that will play on Feb. 7. The Happy Prince tells the untold story of the last days of the famous poet and playwright.
Border tells the story of Tina, a customs officer with the ability to literally sniff out the guilt on anyone — except Vore, a man she’s just met and finds herself attracted to as she tries to understand their bond. This English-subtitled Swedish fantasy/romance/thriller film plays on Feb. 14.
Rounding out the series is A Private War starring Rosamund Pike, who portrays American journalist Marie Colvin, who worked as a foreign affairs correspondent on the front lines of conflict. The film, playing Feb. 21, tells the story of her and photographer Paul Conroy, played by Jamie Dornan, on their most dangerous assignment.
Tickets are $11 for adults, $10 for seniors and $5 for students and children, available online at kamloopsfilmseries.ca/tickets. Season passes are also available, for six films ($48) and for three films ($27).
