‘Wild Rose’ opening at the Cinema Art Theater July 12

July 11, 2019

Starting Friday, July 12, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present “Wild Rose,” a musical drama about a rebellious country singer, Rose-Lynn Harlan (played by Jessie Buckley), who dreams of trading the working-class streets of Glasgow for the Grand Ole Opry of Nashville.

Fresh out of prison, Rose-Lynn juggles her menial job, two children and a committed mother, expertly portrayed by Oscar-nominee Julie Walters, as she pursues her bold ambition of a one-way ticket to musical stardom. With the support of her boss (Sophie Okonedo), Rose-Lynn embarks on a life-changing journey that challenges her sense of self, and helps her discover her true voice.

Complete with an electrifying soundtrack performed by Buckley, “Wild Rose” is a joyous human story steeped in music, courage, family, and achieving dreams - no matter how far away they may appear. After all, all one needs are three chords and the truth. 

Screening times are 3 and 6 p.m., Friday, July 12;  3 p.m., Saturday, July 13; 3 p.m, Sunday, July 14; 1 p.m., Monday, July 15; 6 p.m., and Wednesday, July 17. 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.
