Film to premiere at Tillicum Twin Theatres

Monkey Beach is set in Kitamaat Village, based on book by B.C. author

Tillicum Twin Theatres is set to host the world premiere of a film on Sept. 24.

The film, Monkey Beach, is based on a novel of the same name written by B.C. author Eden Robinson, who is also known for her Trickster series of novels (which have been developed into a TV series that will air on CBC this fall). Monkey Beach is a supernatural mystery about a Haisla woman who returns home to Kitamaat Village to save her brother.

Although the premiere is Sept. 24, public screenings will run afternoons and evenings from Sept. 25 to Sept. 30. Screening times have yet to be announced. Tickets will be available for presale on Tuesday, Sept. 15 and will cost $10. Contact tillicumtheatres@gmail.com for more info.

There will be a limit of 50 patrons per screening, and all will be required to wear masks.

The film is premiering as part of this year’s Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF), which is operating in a modified format this year due to the pandemic. VIFF has unveiled a new streaming service that will feature over 100 films. Meanwhile, there will be a very small number of physical screenings, including a handful in Vancouver and Monkey Beach in Terrace.

Tillicum Twin Theatres has been open to the public since June 20th, after closing down on March 16 due to the pandemic.
