Film festival starts with Hitchcock

Penticton Public Library is celebrating summer with a film festival

The Penticton Public Library’s Tuesday Night Movies have proved so popular, they’ve decided a mini film festival is in order for the summer.

Since September 2016, the library has shown different films, for an adult audience, on the first Tuesday of the month. Continuing the theme, their summer film festival takes place on the first two Tuesday and Thursday evenings in July, with a different film each night in the auditorium. The films were selected in May, with the community voting for which film they would most like to see.

Each night celebrates a different genre and element of cinema. The first film was Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, on July 4. Other films in the series include A Separation (international) on July 6, One Week (Canadian) on July 11 and Manchester by the Sea (blockbuster) on July 13.

All films start at 6 p.m. and are free, and open to everyone 18 and older. Popcorn is provided, but you will need to bring your own bowl.

Tuesday Night Movies return on Sept. 5.
