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


This series continues on Wednesday, Nov. 29 with the Flagstaff premiere of “Railway Children” at 7:00 p.m. at Theatrikos Theatre Company.


Inspired by one of the most beloved British family films of all time, “Railway Children” is an enchanting, moving, and heart-warming adventure for a new generation.


“Railway Children” is set in 1944 in rural England against the backdrop of WW2 when children are flooding into the countryside to escape the bombing of industrial cities.


As life in Britain's cities becomes increasingly perilous, three evacuee children are sent by their mother from Salford to the Yorkshire village of Oakworth. With the help of Bobbie Waterbury (Jenny Agutter), a group of young evacuees are taken into her rural home and begin to settle into their new life in the countryside.


When the children discover injured American soldier Abe (KJ Aikens), hiding out in the railyard at Oakworth Station, they are thrust into a dangerous quest to assist their new friend who, like them, is a long way from home. Then, a true adventure ensues.


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.
