Sidekick! Movie Coming to Town

There’s a one-night-only screening of Sidekick at Tinseltown on Monday night, 7:30. I’m going, hope to see you there.

Update: Keith says they might not be selling tickets at the door — see the comments for more details.

Sidekick’s a Canadian film, eh — it was the Opening Night Gala show at the 2006 Canadian Filmmakers Festival in Toronto (where it won the People’s Pick For Best Flick award).

It’s about a fellow who discovers his co-worker has a bit of a superpower, and tries to get his to be a do-gooder. The crew of this film have been schlepping (yes, that’s the technical term) the film across Canada for a month on a promotion tour and Vancouver is the last stop.

I heard about it from Drexoll Games in Kits. Tanks, guys!

    Warning: at time of writing, the news I’ve heard is that tickets may not be sold at the door. The event is being hosted by Moving Pictures and tickets are available at Biz Books, 302 West Cordova.

    Although (as far as I know) Moving Pictures will be setting up an event table at the theatre, it’s not clear if tickets will be available at the door. Try your luck, as I’ll be doing.

    Update: They did sell tickets at the door after all. The film was pretty good, definitely worth seeing. While light on special effects and sets and big, showy scenes (limited by their $35,000 budget), the script was good, and in the end, that’s what counts. (How many big-money Hollywood films do you know of that were stuffed full of special effects & big name actors but had a mediocre to awful script? This movie was better than them all.)

    The filmmakers hope to be able to continue arranging screenings of the film and do plan to return to Vancouver some time. If you didn’t see it Monday evening, keep an eye out for the film when it returns; it deserves to be watched.
