The Emelin Theatre FILM CLUB Series Begins February 1

The Emelin Theatre continues its eminent FILM CLUB series beginning Feb 1 with a slate of five critically acclaimed, pre-release films.

One of the Emelin's signature programs, Film Club provides members with an early look at some of the most distinctive and exciting films of 2023 and takes them "behind the scenes" in post-film interviews with directors, writers, actors, producers, critics and other guests. The series is curated and moderated by film industry executive Sarah Lash.

Emelin's Film Club members are among the first to see highly anticipated films that have premiered at exclusive festivals like Cannes and Sundance, but are not yet available to the public. Recent highlights include screenings of the film Living, where "Bill Nighy elevates Kurosawa remake to a level of cinematic immortality" (The Globe & Mail), Corsage, for which Vicky Krieps won Best Actress at Cannes; and this year's Oscar nominated Nuisance Bear. Members got a look behind the scenes with exclusive interviews conducted by Emelin programmer Sarah Lash with those closest to the films, including Living producer Stephen Woolley, Corsage director Marie Kreutzer and Nuisance Bear co-directors Gabriela Oslo Vanden and Jack Weisman, to name a few.

Film Club meets on select Wednesdays this winter at 7:30 pm, at the Emelin Theatre. Limited reserved seating is available and refreshments, beer and wine are offered at the Emelin's bar. A Member Only reception will be held on March 29.
