THE BARRIE FILM FESTIVAL WILL SCREEN PROGRAMMING AT SUNSET DRIVE IN THROUGH THE SUMMER
The show must go on…even if you need to bring your car.
Like other venues, the Barrie Film Festival have had to close their doors at the Uptown theatre due to Covid-19, unfortunately yelling “cut” on their usual run of programming.
But now that Sunset Drive In is open, the BFF is presenting a couple of first run, independent gems on the REALLY big screen this week.
On Wednesday, the festival is showing a double feature at Sunset.
