The Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot,” a life-affirming dramatic comedy based on the memoir of the same name by John Callahan. Screening times are 4 p.m., Friday, Aug. 10; 4 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 11; 4 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 12; 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 14; 4 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 15; and 7 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 16.

John Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix) has a lust for life, a talent for off-color jokes, and a drinking problem. When an all-night bender ends in a catastrophic car accident, the last thing he intends to do is give up drinking. But when he reluctantly enters treatment – with encouragement from his girlfriend (Rooney Mara) and a charismatic sponsor (Jonah Hill) – Callahan discovers a gift for drawing edgy, irreverent newspaper cartoons that develop an international following and grant him a new lease on life. Based on a true story, this poignant, insightful and often funny drama about the healing power of art is adapted from Callahan's autobiography and directed by two-time Oscar nominee Gus Van Sant. Jack Black, Carrie Brownstein, Beth Ditto and Kim Gordon also star.

Admission is $8 for members and $11 for nonmembers. Customers are encouraged to purchase tickets online. If seats are available, tickets can be purchased at the theater starting 30 minutes prior to each screening.
