CALLICOON, NY — Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and the Callicoon Theater present “Belle,” inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mabatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a British Royal Navy admiral. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the color of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing.
“Belle,” directed by Amma Asante, will screen Friday, June 6 to Thursday, June 12, at 7:30 p.m., with matinees at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission costs $10 ($8 admission on Mondays and matinees) and $7 for children under 12 at all shows.
A percentage of the profits and $1 per person from ticket sales benefit the programs and services of the DVAA. For more information, call 845/887-4460 or visit www.ArtsAllianceSite.org .
