Judy is the first movie in 2020 for Mariposa Arts Theatre’s popular film series now in its 24th year of presenting outstanding and award-winning films to a large and loyal audience.

Led by a deeply committed performance from Renee Zellweger, JUDY captures the waning days of a beloved performer with clear-eyed compassion. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer”.

Renee Zellweger’s outstanding performance as Judy has already won her a 2020 Golden Globes award as best performance by an actress in a motion picture - drama, a BAFTA nomination as best leading actress, and 11 other wins and 50 nominations.

The series will continue on alternate Wednesdays with more outstanding films: Official Secrets (Feb. 9), The Peanut Butter Falcon (Feb. 19), Parasite (March 4), And the Birds Rained Down (March 18), Sorry We Missed You (April 1), The Woman Who Loves Giraffes (April 15), Military Wives (April 29). The final, yet to be determined movie, will screen on Wednesday May 6.

Tickets for Judy cost $10, cash only. The box office at Orillia Galaxy Cinemas opens at 3 p.m. on Wednesday January 22 for both screenings. Seating is first come, first served.
