Added screenings of Snowpiercer, Walking the Camino
If you missed Snowpiercer, we won't blame you.
It was initially playing only at the Landmark Cinemas Abbotsford Towne theatre, and then had a three-day run at Vancity Theatre, which had some sold-out screenings so it was a tough one to catch.
Thankfully, due to popular demand, you've got some additional shots at seeing it.
The long-awaited adaptation of a French graphic novel by South Korean director Bong Joon-Ho (who shot the South Korean monster box-office hit The Host as well as Mother) and starring an international cast that boasts Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Song Kang-Ho, Octavia Spencer, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, and more.
It'll play again on August 22 (10:30 p.m.) and 29 (10:45 p.m.).
Here's an interview I conducted with the director when he was a Dragons and Tigers juror for the 2010 Vancouver International Film Festival and was working on Snowpiercer. In it, he talked about how he was considering Canada as a possible shooting location for the film.
Meanwhile, those interested in seeing the documentary Walking the Camino are also in luck.
The film documents several people taking the 800-kilometre journey from the French border to Spain's western edge.
In addition the screenings on August 16 (5 p.m.) and 23 (5 p.m.), two more screenings have been added at Vancity Theatre, on August 23 (2:30 p.m.) and 30 (3:45 p.m.).
