Cinema Capitol will present the documentary SOME KIND OF HEAVEN from Friday, January 15 through Monday, January 18.
SOME KIND OF HEAVEN explores life inside the palm-tree-lined streets of The Villages, America’s largest retirement community in Florida. Referred to as the “Disneyland for Retirees,” this planned community is home to over 130,000 seniors. It offers residents a utopian version of the American yesteryear: wide, safe streets, perfectly manicured lawns, and countless activities all in service of enjoying their golden years.
While most residents have bought into its packaged positivity, we meet four residents living on the margins, striving to find happiness. They try to come to terms with dementia, seek romance, and even suffer from homelessness.
VARIETY writes “Those nostalgic for the fond portraits of eccentric Americana in Errol Morris’ early work – and pretty much everyone else – will be delighted by “Some Kind of Heaven.” THE WASHINGTON POST also expresses “The film deepens and grows more thoughtful – and, yes, sad – as its spotlight on the need for human connection – at any age – comes into focus.”
The documentary will play on Friday and Saturday at 4:15 and 7:15, Sunday at 1:15 and 4:15, and Monday at 7:15. Friday’s 4:15 and Sunday’s 1:15 shows will include captions for the hearing-impaired.
All patrons are required to wear masks for the duration of the movie, unless eating and/or drinking. Parties will be socially-distanced at least 6 feet apart.
