Sun Valley Museum of Art (SVMoA) is pleased to jump back into presenting films with the reopening of the Magic Lantern Cinemas. New this fall, The Museum will screen films weekly, starting Thursday, Sept. 24, and continuing through December.
Finally, from North Macedonia comes Honeyland. This film won multiple awards at festivals around the world, including the Grand Prize at Sundance, and was named by journalist and film critic A.O. Scott as his selection for best film of 2019. The film explores a poor beekeeper in an isolated village whose golden rule is to leave half the honey for the bees. When a new neighbor and his unruly family move in, they disrupt the beekeeper’s quiet way of life and threaten her only means of income. Honeyland will play on Thursday, Oct. 15, at the Magic Lantern Cinemas at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
In the interest of community health and safety, SVMoA has adhered to CDC guidelines and the Governor of Idaho’s orders as it invites people back to its museum, classes, and film screenings. Attendees are required to wear face masks upon entry to the Magic Lantern, and seating will be adjusted to comply with physical distancing requirements. Anyone who feels ill or lives with someone who is ill should stay at home. A limited number of tickets will be sold in advance through the SVMoA website; tickets may not be available at the door. For those uncomfortable with an in-person experience, The Museum will post on its website how these films may be viewed from home (with the exception of MANHATTAN SHORT).
Tickets for all films are $10 for SVMoA members and $12 for nonmembers. For more information and to reserve tickets (limited seating), please visit www.svmoa.org or call 208.726.9491. There will also be further information about physical distancing on SVMoA’s website.
