McDonald at the Movies: Gregory’s Girl
Wed, Aug 7 / 7 pm
Kids in the Hall co-founder Kevin McDonald introduces a new 2K restoration of the early comic gem from the director of Local Hero, Bill Forsyth. Sixteen year old Gregory is an awkward, gangly Scottish lad who is in the midst of the throes of puberty. The object of his affection is Dorothy, despite or in part because she is a talented striker who took his place on the school's boys' football team. He is now demoted to distracted goalkeeper. When Gregory finally gets the nerve to ask Dorothy out on a date, the result is not quite what he expects.

Ten years ago, artist and vinyl fanatic Chris Flanagan unearthed a mysterious thrift store record that changed his whole life. Haunted by the voice of a woman listed only as 'Shella Record' he dropped everything and began a quest to find out who she was and what happened to her. Like Searching for Sugarman, Chris is determined to find the elusive artist and embarks on a pilgrimage to Kingston Jamaica to search out the music community. He soon travels to America following in her footsteps from New York to Los Angeles, enlisting the help of psychics, private investigators and ghost hunters in an increasingly desperate search. What he discovers may surprise you.
