Crowning achievement for Shot in the Dark

Next independent film night feature is The King's Speech

The next film presented by Shot in the Dark will be The King's Speech

Theatre-goers who didn’t manage to see  this year’s Best Picture before last Sunday’s ceremony will get a chance to watch Colin Firth in his Academy award-winning turn as Britain’s King Charles VI, when Shot in the Dark, Langley Film Nights presents The King’s Speech on Wednesday, March 9.

The striking period drama tells he true story of a shy prince’s unlikely journey to become the king of England as the nation teeters on the brink of war.

As second to the throne, living in the shadow of his older brother Edward the prince universally known as Bertie seemed destined to lead a quiet life. 

But when his brother shockingly announces his resignation from the throne in a move that will allow him to marry an American divorcée, Bertie reluctantly assumes the role and is thrust into the spotlight. 

Plagued by a dreaded nervous stammer and generally considered unfit to be king, he engages the help of a quirky speech therapist. 

Through a set of unexpected techniques, and as a result of an unlikely friendship, Bertie is able to find his voice and gain the confidence to help boldly lead the country into the Second World War.

All films are screened at Colossus theatres at 200 Street and 88 Avenue. Start time is 7:30 p.m A list of all previous films screened is now available on both Facebook and on the organization’s website at  www.shotinthedark.ca.  Tickets $10 at the door.
