While its physical doors are temporarily closed, the Strand Theatre continues to offer a weekly schedule of new release films that viewers can watch through online streaming platforms. By purchasing a “virtual ticket,” movie fans can still see the films that would have shown at the theater. Ticket proceeds are split between the Strand and the movie distribution company, so a viewer’s purchase is a simple and direct way to provide much-needed support for the theater.
Showing on September 11 - 24 is Out Stealing Horses (2019) by Norwegian director Hans Petter Moland.
November 1999: 67-year-old Trond (Stellan Skarsgård) lives in self-imposed isolation and looks forward to welcoming in the new millennium alone. As winter arrives he meets one of his few neighbors, Lars (Bjørn Floberg), and realizes he knew him back in the summer of 1948.
1948 – the year Trond turned 15. The summer Trond grew up.
Out Stealing Horses is based on the bestselling novel by Norwegian author Per Petterson, which received several international awards and was included in The New York Times “10 Best Books of 2007 (Fiction).”
Petterson’s novels have been translated into more than 50 languages.
