Monday Night Movies at the Old Theatre

The Kootenay Gallery is once again offering the popular fundraiser. Monday Night at the Movies and happy to announce the showings will be in the Old Theatre, Castlegar.
Mark your calendars for MAUDIE Sept 25th at 7pm, the first in a monthly series of 8 movies. Series tickets $8 each ( $64) available at the gallery and single tickets $9, gallery and at the door.
Starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke, Maudie is the film biography of Nova Scotia folk artist Maud Lewis who became one of Canada’s most beloved naive painters. Crippled by rheumatoid arthritis as a young girl, Maud  is desperate to escape her over protective family and gain independence. She applies as housekeeper to the grumpy reclusive fishmonger, Everett Lewis, and while cleaning his cottage starts painting flowers on shelves. Against his best inclinations, Everett finds he is falling for this bright eyed, funny woman. In love with him herself, Maud persuades him to marry her while the sales of her work and her reputation grow.
This unlikely love story and peek into a fascinating life and talent, is played out against the gorgeous backdrop of Newfoundland scenery and critics rave about the sensitivity of the acting and filming.
