‘Lost in Paris’ opens at Cinema Art Theater Oct. 6

October 5, 2017

Starting Friday, Oct. 6, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society's Cinema Art Theater will present “Lost in Paris,” a comedy that will surely make everyone laugh.

“Lost in Paris” is filmed in the signature whimsical style of filmmakers Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon. They also star in the film with Abel portraying Dom, a strangely seductive, oddly egotistical vagabond, and Gordon a small-town Canadian librarian named Fiona. Fiona's orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 88-year-old Aunt Martha (delightfully portrayed by Academy Award nominee Emmanuelle Riva) who is living in Paris. Fiona hops on the first plane she can and arrives only to discover that Martha has disappeared. In an avalanche of spectacular disasters, she encounters Dom, an affable but annoying vagrant who just won't leave her alone. Replete with the amazing antics and intricately choreographed slapstick that have come to define Abel and Gordon's work, “Lost in Paris” is a wondrously fun and hectic tale of peculiar people finding love while lost in the City of Light.

Screening times are 4 and 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 6, 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 7, 4 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 8, 1 and 4 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 11, and 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 12. Tickets can be purchased at the Cinema Art Theater starting 30 minutes prior to each screening. Admission for a screening is $8 for RBFS members and $10 for nonmembers. All screenings are held at the Cinema Art Theater located at 17701 Dartmouth Drive in Dartmouth Plaza, behind the Lewes Wawa.
