Tickets now on sale for “Still Alice” at the Valerie Theatre
Tickets are now on sale for “Still Alice,” which will be shown at the historic Valerie Theatre in Inverness in October to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Family Organization. The highly acclaimed motion picture, starring Julianne Moore and Alec Baldwin, will run twice, at 3 and 7 p.m. on October 21, 2018. It portrays how the bonds of a family are tested when the mother, an accomplished linguistics professor, is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease.
When released in 2014, “Still Alice” did not have a strong box office performance, but by the end of the year it had earned 30 top film awards including a Best Actress Oscar for Moore’s performance. It’s recognition as a significant contribution to both cinema art and the cause of better Alzheimer’s awareness has steadily grown since its release.
One critic wrote, “Julianne Moore is on the top of her game; she delivers an authentic portrayal of a woman trying to come to grips with her terrible diagnosis. As the title suggests, the focus is on Alice and her character is fully developed even when she is at her lowest.”
Following the film, experts on Alzheimer’s and dementia from the Alzheimer’s Family Organization will be available for questions and answers with the audience.
General admission tickets for both the matinee and evening performances are $20 each. Based on the results of last year’s special Alzheimer’s Awareness movie at the Valerie, both showings are expected to sell out. To acquire tickets on line, go to www.valerietheatre.org. Tickets are also available at the Box Office, in person or by phone, Thursday-Saturday, Noon to 4 p.m. and one hour before show times. 207 Courthouse Square, Inverness, FL 34450 (352)341-7850×2.
