‘Summerland’ opens at Cinema Art Theater July 31

July 29, 2020

Starting Friday, July 31, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present “Summerland,” a British war drama that follows the story of a fiercely independent folklore investigative writer.

Alice is a reclusive writer, resigned to a solitary life on the seaside cliffs of Southern England while World War II rages across the channel. Consumed by her work, but also profoundly lonely, she is haunted by a love affair from her past. When she opens her front door one day to find she's to adopt a young London evacuee named Frank, she's resistant. It's not long, however, before the two realize they have more in common in their pasts than Alice had assumed. Gemma Arterton, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Tom Courtenay star in this intensely emotional story of love's endurance in trying times. 

Screening times are 3 and 6 p.m., Friday, July 31; 6 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 1; 3 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 2; 5 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 5; and 2 p.m., Thursday, Aug 6. Admission is $8 for members and $11 for future members. 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.
