On Monday February 11, the Ancaster Film Fest will screen A Late Quartet at 1:00 and 7:15 p.m. only and The Perks of Being a Wallflower at 4:00 p.m. only at Ancaster Silver City.   Non members pay $9 at the matinees and $10 at the evening screening.  Box Office opens at 12:15, 3:15 and 6:15 p.m. respectively.

These films replace the previously scheduled Quartet which was cancelled by Cineplex because it is already playing at the East Mountain Silver City.

When the beloved cellist of a famous string quartet receives a disconcerting medical diagnosis, the group’s future is placed in jeopardy further fueled by  suppressed emotions, competing egos, and uncontrollable passions. As they prepare to play their 25th anniversary concert, quite possibly their last, can their past bonds and the power of music preserve their legacy. Inspired by and structured around Beethoven’s Opus 131 String Quartet in C-sharp minor, A Late Quartet pays homage to chamber music and the cultural world of New York.  It was directed and co-written by Yaron Zilberman and features tour-de-force performances from Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener.

Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a modern classic that captures the dizzying highs and crushing lows of growing up. Starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a moving tale of love, loss, fear and hope-and the unforgettable friends that help us through life.  Emma Watson won a People’s Choice Award as Best Dramatic Actress and the film won a People’s Choice Award as Best Dramatic Film.

Proceeds from the screenings will be donated to Hamilton Out of the Cold and the Ancaster Food Drive.
