Event Notes

× Trail & District Arts Council's MONDAY CINEMA

Phantom of the Open

at The Royal Theatre, 1597 Bay Avenue, Trail.

Monday, October 17th @ 4 pm

$12/person - No assigned seating. Only 143 seats available.

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN follows Maurice Flitcroft (Mark Rylance), a dreamer and unrelenting optimist who managed to gain entry to The British Open Golf Championship Qualifying in 1976 and subsequently shot the worst round in Open history, becoming a folk hero in the process.

What follows is a story about eternal optimism, pursuing your dreams, and the unflinching support families give to one another. Sally Hawkins gives a heartrending performance as Maurice’s wife and biggest supporter.

“Despite its light subject matter, [Phantom of the Open] is about something more than an obscure British folk hero … It’s a story about following your passion, not because of the heights this path will take you to, but because it makes you happy.” - Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post

Director: Craig Roberts / Cast: Mark Rylance, Sally Hawkins, Rhys Ifans, Jake Davies / Country: UK / Length: 1h 46 mins / Language: English / Genre: Drama, Comedy, True Story / Rating: PG
