Six films on tap for new Beach Flicks season in Parksville

The season opens with The Lunchbox on Friday night

Beach Flicks will proudly kick off its fourth season this Friday.

“It’s true, time flies when you’re having fun. It’s hard for us to believe we are celebrating season four,” said Beach Flicks publicist Luba Plotnikoff. “It’s so much fun for us and such a great opportunity to provide entertainment and an inexpensive night out for our community.” According to the event’s chair, Karen Roberts, Beach Flicks started when a group of film lovers decided to bring the cinema to the community instead of having the local audience drive to the city to watch a movie. “People are just so appreciative,” said Plotnikoff.

Today, the event is run by nine volunteers who review each film and try to match them with the “community and Beach Flick movie lovers.” There are six films slated for this year’s season.

“We are all very excited to be back showcasing another fantastic line-up of Toronto International Films this season,” said Plotnikoff.

Beach Flicks will open with The Lunchbox on Friday night. It’s a story about a middle class housewife, Ila, who attempts to spice up her marriage by preparing amazing lunches for her neglectful husband. The other films in this season include The Grand Seduction (Nov. 14), Ida (Jan. 16, 2015), Chef (Feb. 13), Wadjda (Mar. 6), Tracks (Apr. 17). All films will be shown at Eaglecrest Golf Course. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and films begin at 7 p.m. sharp. Tickets are sold at the door for $6. A concession and bar will be available through the golf course. For more information on the event or upcoming films, please visit beachflicks.ca
