Fahrenheit 11/9 is being shown by the Okanagan Screen Arts Society at Vernon Towne Cinema Jan. 21.

This film is produced by renowned filmmaker Michael Moore who examines the current state of American politics, particularly the Donald Trump presidency with regard to gun violence. In a comedic and provocative way this entertaining, informative, and motivating documentary gives Moore’s view on what has happened in the United States after Sept. 11.

This movie is deeply moving and emotionally captivating as it is the inspired work of a true American purist giving a cautionary warning about the need to end a dictatorship in a world currently ruled with amazing apathy and return America to the dream of patriotism before it is too late.

Showtimes are 5:15 and 7:45 p.m. A cash wine bar is on site. Enjoy a pre-show intro by resident filmmaker Matt McDowell and live music in the lobby before the early show courtesy of Les Copeland. Advance tickets are available at Towne Cinema box office and Expressions of Time.

The Okanagan Screen Arts’ annual Night at The Oscars Feb. 24 streamed live from Hollywood at the Vernon Towne Cinema.
