The Village Podcast from The Bookshelf

Feb 16, 2020

After an extra week apart Steph and Candice had more than usual to catch up on. Movie awards season is all wrapped up and we know what movies are worthy now. And both Steph and Candice started the new year reading books outside their usual niche.


Second run theatres like the Bookshelf struggle to schedule a regular calendar because sometimes first run theatres (like Cineplex) choose to keep playing a film long past their release date. This month Knives Out was pulled from the calendar just a few days from the showings.

Little Women, playing Feb 28 - Mar 7

Parasite, playing Feb 7 - 17
