A black comedy starring Peter Dinklage and directed by Frank Oz is our next SPRINGfilm offering as we witness a “Death at a Funeral”. This “rousing British farce” follows a family trying to bury their patriarch while an unexpected guest (Game of Throne’s Peter Dinklage) and the accidental dosing of a mourner with a hallucinogen leads to chaos for all involved. This 2007 British production inspired not only an American remake starring Chris Rock but also two films in Hindi and Kannada. Enjoy this free showing at 6:30 p.m., Thursday April 7, 2022 in the Wildish Community Theater. Masks are not required to attend this showing but are welcome.
