Fantastic Summer Lineup
Throughout the months of December to January, the Avoca Beach Picture Theatre is holding the Summer Moments event with a huge lineup of great films to please audiences of every age and taste.
There’s Melancholia, the European Film Awards 2011 Best Film. The beautiful film is by Lars von Triers. So if you’re up for a good time watching an artsy award winning film, then this is the one for you.
For the young ones and old ones alike, there’s Dolphin Tale, starring Winter, played by herself. The movie is about an injured dolphin and the people who come together to save the dolphin’s life. This is a good watch for the whole family.
Another popular one is Eye of the Storm. If you want some edge of your seat entertainment, the Eye of the Storm is going to be your cup of tea.
Satyagraha , produced by the New York Met Opera, is an opera by Philip Glass about the unforgettable Gandhi. The film tells Gandhi’s story when he developed his stance on non-violence during his early years in South Africa.
Ides of March, on the other hand, is an immensely relevant and completely timely movie which stars George Clooney, Phillip Seymour-Hoffman, Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti and Evan Rachel Wood, just to name a few from this all-star cast.
