The Colonial Theatere in Belfast is offering films for streaming from its website. Those who buy virtual tickets will have several days to watch the films. Ticket prices vary; half of ticket revenue is earmarked for the theater’s future full-scale operation. Recently (or soon-to-be) movies added to the lineup are:

“Days of the Bagnold Summer” (2019, 86 minutes), directed by Simon Bird. Based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel, the film is a funny, sweet coming-of-age story. Daniel was supposed to spend the summer with his dad and his dad’s new wife in Florida, but when his dad cancels the trip Daniel and his mom suddenly face the prospect of six long weeks together. An epic war of wills ensues in their suburban home as Daniel just wants to listen to heavy metal and start a band, while his mom hopes to rekindle the fun times they used to have together. Featuring original songs by Belle and Sebastian.

“A Shape of Things to Come,” directed by Lisa Marie Malloy and J.P. Sniadecki. Sundog lives as an eccentric recluse in the Sonoran desert on the Mexican border. He lives on what he finds, be it a wild boar or the psychedelic poison of a toad. “A Shape of Things to Come” puts precedence on the sensory materiality of the desert over explanations and dialogue, and moves beyond the human scale and down to animal perspectives. It creates a world that stretches from a distant past in the ecological movements of the 1960s to a possible future in the aftermath of the apocalypse. But border patrol agents are threatening the peace in Sundog’s desert kingdom, which the armed recluse is prepared to defend.
