The February 2018 movie listings include:
Call Me By Your Name
February 2nd – 4th
In Northern Italy in 1983, seventeen-year-old Elio begins a relationship with visiting Oliver, his father’s research assistant, with whom he bonds over his emerging sexuality, their Jewish heritage, and the beguiling Italian landscape.
The Florida Project *
February 9th – 11th
The Florida Project is a deeply moving and unforgettably poignant look a childhood. Set on a stretch of highway just outside the imagined utopia of Disney World, the film follows 6-year-old Moonee and her rebellious mother Halley over a single summer. The two live week at a budget motel, but despite these surroundings, the precocious and ebullient Moonee is filled with joy, her endless afternoons overflowing with mischief and adventure as she and her ragtag playmates fearlessly explore the unique world into which they’ve been thrown. The Florida Project demonstrates that anywhere can be a Magic Kingdom, it just depends on how you see it.
So, come out and show your support to your local theatre, with these great films. I’ve added a star beside the titles of the films I’d recommend watching. I’m also looking forward to seeing The Florida Project! If you find yourself bored on the weekends you may enjoy volunteering at Evans Theatre too! Thanks for reading.
