Upcoming Dates & Times


October 15, 2017 at 2:00pm

Sunday, October 15th, BFS is proud to host two screenings of Missoula-based Montana Film Festival’s five-day Roadshow Tour of 'Walking Out.' In this anticipated new feature by Missoula brothers Alex and Andrew J. Smith (based on acclaimed writer David Quammen’s masterful 1980 short story), a teenager travels to rural Montana for his yearly visit with his reclusive father. A hunting trip meant to help them bond becomes a fight for life and death after a series of extreme events leaves them dependent on each other to survive. Shot against strikingly beautiful and dramatic Montana mountains, the film is harrowing and emotionally raw. Starring Matt Bomer, Josh Wiggins, Bill Pullman, Lily Gladstone and Alex Neuestadter, Walking Out is a primal tale of connection, survival and the true path to manhood.

Time Out New York names 'Walking Out' one of the best films of the year, while Salt Lake Tribune film critic Sean P. Means states; “The bonds between father and son are tested to the breaking point in Walking Out, a nail-biter of a survival drama.” Screenwriter/directors Alex & Andrew J. Smith, cinematographer Todd McMullan and writer David Quammen will attend both screenings.  A reception follows the evening presentation. Screenings are at 2:00 pm & 6:30 pm at the Ellen Theatre. Reserved seats: $15/General; $13.75/Seniors & Students (plus fees). Rated PG-13, the film runs 95 minutes.
