The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to partner with Theatrikos Theatre Company to bring movies to Downtown Flagstaff!

This special series continues on Monday, May 29 with “Keeping Mum” at 7:30 p.m. at Theatrikos Theatre Company to celebrate ArtX weekend.

“Keeping Mum” stars Dame Maggie Smith, Kristin Scott Thomas, Rowan Atkinson and the late Patrick Swayze.

Some family secrets are best kept buried.

“Keeping Mum” stars Atkinson as Walter Goodfellow, an absent-minded vicar of a rural parish who is so distracted by the pressures of his job that he fails to notice his wife’s (Thomas) dalliance with her brash golf instructor (Swayze), his daughter’s parade of new boyfriends, and his young son’s regular trouncing by the school’s bullies.

Enter their charming new housekeeper, Grace (Smith), the answer to the family’s prayers: a sweet, grey-haired old lady with her own distinctive definition of cleaning house.

One by one, the family members find that Grace is able to solve their problems, but they don’t realize that her means are leading to a lot of ends and the population of their sleepy hamlet is rapidly diminishing.

“British comedy at its very best!” — Daily Mirror

“Witty, sly, devilishly-funny, with bravura performances!” — Jeffrey Lyons, NBC’s Reel Talk

Theatrikos Theatre Company is located at 11 W. Cherry Ave. in Downtown Flagstaff.

This partnership and collaboration is made possible by a generous grant from Creative Flagstaff.
