Wheeler sets fall film schedule
Aspen, CO Colorado
ASPEN ” The Wheeler Film Series will present seven films in late September and through October at the Wheeler Opera House.
The calendar opens Monday through Wednesday, Sept. 29-Oct. 1, with an encore engagement of “Bottle Shock.” The story is set around the Judgment of Paris, the 1976 Paris wine-tasting that put California wines on the international map, and features Alan Rickman as a snobbish British wine dealer and Bill Pullman as a Napa Valley winemaker.
“Transsiberian,” a crime drama starring Woody Harrelson and Emily Mortimer as an American couple traveling through Asia by train, is set for Oct. 5-8. The British film “Mister Foe,” a psychological coming-of-age story about a voyeuristic teenager longing for his dead mother, will be screened Oct. 13-14. “Grocer’s Son,” a French movie about the reluctant return of a 30-year-old man to his native village in Provence, shows Oct. 15-16.
“Frozen River,” the Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner about two women in difficult economic circumstances near the Canadian border, is scheduled for Oct. 20-21. French director Claude Chabrol’s black comedy “A Girl Cut in Two,” about a TV weather girl and two men who pursue her, will be screened Oct. 22-23.
The schedule concludes with “In Search of a Midnight Kiss,” a romantic comedy set on New Year’s Eve in Los Angeles and filmed in black-and-white, shows Oct. 26-28.
All Wheeler films show at 7:30 p.m. Films scheduled for Saturday and Sunday will also have additional 4:30 p.m. matinees on those days.

Normalcy will be few and far between this ski season, so Aspen’s Simi Hamilton’s traditional slow start brought a sense of calm to a world that’s mostly in chaos at the moment.
