OUR 2019/2020 FILM SERIES


SCREENINGS POSTPONED
Film Night International has decided, with regret, to postpone the screenings of our two remaining films in the 2019/2020 season (BY THE GRACE OF GOD and THE FAREWELL) until at least early fall, depending on how the COVID-19 pandemic progresses.
When further updates are available, they will be posted on this blog.
Please keep your series passes so that they can be honored when alternate dates have been selected.
Any passholder who wishes to request a refund of $20 for these two films may contact either filmnightperth@gmail.com (for Perth attendees) or smithsfallslibrary@vianet.ca (for Smiths Falls attendees). Please forward your mailing address to us and we will mail a cheque to you.

Billi's family returns to China under the guise of a fake wedding to stealthily say goodbye to their beloved matriarch - the only person who doesn't know she only has a few weeks to live.




New this year, pass holders may attend either the matinee or the evening screening depending on their schedules. They should, however, keep in mind that seating is limited. We recommend that they arrive at least 30 minutes before a screening to avoid finding their seating choices limited.


Single tickets, if available, will go on sale at the box office ten minutes before screening time for $12 each.


Please be advised that passes are not interchangeable between the Perth and Smiths Falls screenings.
 

All profits, after expenses, from the Full Circle Theatre screenings will be donated to the Perth and District Union Public Library. Profits from the Station Theatre screenings will be donated to the Smiths Falls Public Library.
