In case you didn’t know, Some Kind of Heaven, about The Villages, Florida is coming to town. The 2020 American documentary is a unique look into the world’s largest retirement community. Soon the film will be hitting the screen at Ocala’s Marion Theater. The film was produced by Darren Aronofsky, The New York Times, and Los Angeles Media Fund and directed by Lance Oppenheim.
After becoming an official selection of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, the film gained national attention. Some Kind of Heaven is the first feature from Lance Oppenheim, who takes a look inside the manicured facade of The Villages, America’s largest retirement community. The documentary takes a look at the dreams and desires of a small group of Villages residents.
The film explores folks who are unable to find happiness within the community’s pre-packaged paradise. The documentary offers a tender and surreal look at finding the meaning of life and love. You can check out the full trailer for the documentary below.
Some Kind Of Heaven will be shown at the Marion Theater on January 28th at 2:30 PM, January 30th at 8 PM, and January 31st at 4:30 PM. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased online at www.mariontheatre.org. Tickets can also be purchased at the door.
Remember, the theatre continues to operate at a reduced capacity and requires guests to wear masks when not in their seats. Keep it locked with The Culture Curators for much more happening in #OurOcala!
