‘Priscilla’, a biographical film written, directed and produced by Sofia Coppola, was almost entirely shot in Toronto.
Priscilla Beaulieu (played by Cailee Spaeny) was only 14-years-old when she met 24-year-old Elvis Presley (Jacob Elorbi) in Germany where Priscilla’s father was stationed in the U.S. Military and Elvis, at the peak of his career, was also stationed. This was 1959. They met at a house party and began casually dating.
They reconnected three years later in the U.S. and their courtship continued. The film is based on the 1985 memoir ‘Elvis and Me’ by Priscilla and details her complicated love story with a rock-and-roll superstar who becomes someone entirely unexpected in private moments: a thrilling crush, an ally in loneliness and a vulnerable friend.
Perfectly timed for date night during the holiday season! ‘Priscilla’ plays for one night only on Thursday, December 7th at 7:30 pm at the Park Theatre in Goderich. Doors open at 7:00.
