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

This series continues on Wednesday, April 10 with the Flagstaff premiere of “Driving Madeleine” at 7:00 p.m. at Theatrikos Theatre Company.

“Driving Madeleine” was the top award-winning film at the recent Sedona International Film Festival, garnering both the Best International Feature Film Award and Audience Choice Best of Fest Award.

In "Driving Madeleine", a seemingly simple taxi ride evolves into a heartfelt meditation on the lives of the driver and his passenger.

Charles (Dany Boon) is a taxi driver in Paris, and he is having a very bad day. Enter Madeleine (Line Renaud), an immaculately groomed nonagenarian, who informs Charles that the trip today will not be a direct one. She is moving into a nursing home and would like to make some stops along the way, predicting that this might be her last car ride through the city.

Their ride takes them through the momentous locations of her life, and their brief friendship deepens as Madeleine listens to Charles confess his own worries.


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.
