Sneak preview of Never Saw it Coming

County residents and visitors are invited to view the movie Never Saw it Coming at an exclusive sneak preview Saturday, Aug. 11 at The Regent Theatre, Picton.

The movie is based on the novel by best-selling author Linwood Barclay, who also wrote the screenplay, and is directed by award-winning director Gail Harvey.

Barclay and Harvey have homes in the County and, along with producer Marina Cordoni, have
offered the preview as a fundraiser for 99.3 County
FM and The Regent Theatre.

Harvey describes it as “a chilling story of double-dealing, violence and murder that will keep you on the edge of your seat with a roller coaster ride of the unexpected.”

The movie had its world premiere at the Whistler Film Festival, and was praised as “a very dark
comedy, perfectly orchestrated… Hitchcock would be proud.”

At the SOHO International Film Festival NYC in June, it was nominated for Best World Showcase Feature Film. Never Saw it Coming will begin its theatrical release in Toronto’s Cineplex Cinemas Yonge-Dundas on Aug. 17.

In Picton, the writer and director will host a reception for 50 patrons at 6 p.m. in the upstairs lounge of the Regent ($40 per ticket-plus tax & fees) as well as a question and answer session following the 7:30 p.m. showing ($20 per ticket-plus tax & fees).

Deb Simpson, General Manager of 99.3 County FM, said the station is thrilled and thankful that Linwood and Gail offered to host the special evening.

“As County residents, I know they recognize the contribution both 99.3 County FM and The Regent Theatre make to the community.” As not-for-profit organizations, both the radio station and the theatre rely on donors, sponsors and fund-raising events to sustain their programming.

“This year marks the 100th anniversary of The Regent and this will be the launch of our year of special events that go from this summer to next,” said Neil Shorthouse, general manager at The Regent. “We’re very pleased, particularly, to have local content and this one-of-a-kind event; a sneak preview of a major film.”
