Bringing Independent Films to the North Okanagan
Every second Monday (and every Monday in the summer !), we host a special movie night at Vernon's wonderfully classic Towne Cinema. The film is often from a new director operating outside the Hollywood studio system but we also screen classics featuring iconic directors or actors.
Tickets: regular price $8; members $6 debit/credit card accepted

New Dehli in March 1947. The huge and stately Viceroy's Palace is like a beehive. Its five hundred employees are busy preparing for the arrival of Lord Louis Mountbatten, who has just been appointed new (and last) viceroy of India by prime minister Clement Attlee. Mountbatten, whose difficult task consists of overseeing the transition of British India to independence, arrives at the Palace, accompanied by Edwina, his liberal-minded wife and Pamela, his eighteen-year-old daughter. Meanwhile, in the staff quarters, a love story is born between Jeet, a Hindu, and Aalia, a Muslim beauty. Things will prove difficult, to say the least, on the personal and the geopolitical level.
