Theatrical Premiere for BIG SONIA

Oct 11   •   9:00 am - 9:00 pm
  •   Cost: $9.90

Grandma. Diva. Survivor. See award-winning documentary Big Sonia on the BIG screen at the Chase Park Plaza Cinemas!

 

The official St. Louis Theatrical Premiere is on October 5 and directors will attend opening weekend. They will be available for Q&A sessions after the 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. showings on October 5 and 6.

 

In the last store in a defunct shopping mall, 91-year-old Sonia Warshawski—great-grandmother, businesswoman, and Holocaust survivor—runs the tailor shop she’s owned for more than thirty years. But when she’s served an eviction notice, the specter of retirement prompts Sonia to revisit her harrowing past as a refugee and witness to genocide. A poignant story of generational trauma and healing, BIG SONIA also offers a laugh-out-loud-funny portrait of the power of love to triumph over bigotry, and the power of truth-telling to heal us all.
