Welcome to the new season or Sylvan Lake Film Society!

Welcome to the new season or Sylvan Lake Film Society!

Our fall line-up starts on Monday (Sept. 24th), with “Hysteria”, a Victorian-era film directed by Tanya Wexler.

A summary of the film on IMDb states, “In Victorian London, Dr. Mortimer Granville, a young doctor struggles to establish himself. He is hired by a doctor to investigate treatments for women diagnosed with female hysteria using ‘pelvic massage’. The doctor’s two daughters develop an interest in the young Dr. Granville, each attempting to woo him.”

This charming, witty look at an invention that changed the lives of women everywhere will be sure to entertain all who attend.

Tickets are available for pre-sale at the library, or may be purchased at the theatre opening night. Tickets are $8, season passes are $40 — you get one movie free!

The movie starts at 7 p.m. — be there early to get a good seat.
