WHALLONSBURG — Several of the most critically-acclaimed movies of 2013 will be coming to Essex County this winter courtesy of The Champlain Valley Film Society.

The slate includes a mix of dramatic films, documentaries and award nominees presented through an HD projector with a theater-quality sound system.

All films will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Saturdays at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall, 1610 Route 22. Except for the Oscar Shorts screening and refreshments, tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for those under 18. For the most up-to-date schedule, visit the CVFS website at www.cvfilms.org.

The season begins Saturday, Jan. 18, with “20 Feet from Stardom,” a documentary that shines a spotlight on the backup singers behind some of the 20th-century’s biggest musical performers including The Rolling Stones, Sting, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Wonder. The Chicago Tribune called it “pure satisfaction.”
