Please join the Fort St. John Film Society this Monday April 4th for “The Legend of Barney Thomson” 7:00 pm at the Aurora Cinema Centre. Please bring cash as the theatre’s ATM is not always working. Society volunteers love to see the beginning of the films so ticket sales will close at 6:55 pm.
Synopsis: Barney Thomson is an awkward barber who inadvertently stumbles into serial murder, with both absurd and macabre consequences. When a series of accidental events causes Barney’s dark fantasies to become reality, his uninteresting life suddenly gets very complicated, as he enters the grotesque and comically absurd world of the serial killer. Complicating matters further, Barney’s mother Cemolina has a secret of her own, causing a bloody and comedic chain of events. While Barney clumsily tries to cover his and his mother’s tracks, the police inspector Holdall fights his own battles within his inept homicide department as he tries to solve the crime of the century. A black comedy of errors unfolds as the police try to capture the murderer at large.
