CALLICOON, NY — Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and the Callicoon Theater present the Oscar-nominated film “Philomena” starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan starting Friday, February 7.

Philomena Lee (Dench) is an elderly Irish woman searching for her long-lost son. Having given birth as a teenager, Philomena was forced by Catholic nuns to give up her baby for adoption. Decades later, with the help of a BBC political journalist (Coogan), she is ready to know the truth about what happened to her boy.

Philomena is rated PG-13 and will screen Friday, February 7 to Thursday, February 13, nightly at 7:30 p.m., with matinees at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $10 ($8 admission on Mondays and matinees) and $7 for children under 12 at all shows.
