Event Notes

× Trail & District Arts Council's MONDAY CINEMA presents


at The Royal Theatre, 1597 Bay Avenue, Trail.

Monday, February 13th @ 4 pm

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

In 1950s London, a humorless civil servant decides to take time off work to experience life after receiving a grim diagnosis.

Nominated for Best Actor (Bill Nighy) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Kazuo Ishiguro) at the upcoming 2023 Acadamy Awards.

“LIVING” is the story of an ordinary man, reduced by years of oppressive office routine to a shadow existence, who at the eleventh hour makes a supreme effort to turn his dull life into something wonderful. After trying hedonism at a seaside resort as a solution he returns to the city to create a legacy for the next generation.

An English-language adaptation by Kazuo Ishiguro (“Remains of the Day” and “Never Let Me Go”) of the script of Akira Kurosawa’s "Ikiru" (1952), now set in a London shattered by WWII in the 1950s.

“Really quite something: a rare remake that only augments and enriches the original. For Bill Nighy, meanwhile, it feels in every sense like the role of a lifetime.” - Empire Magazine

“An absolutely gorgeous, heartbreaking piece of work.” Rolling Stone

“A gentle, exquisitely sad film.” - Guardian
