Film has received high praise in many reviews

YARMOUTH, N.S. —

Tickets for a much-anticipated movie filmed on the craggy tip of Cape Forchu are now available at the Yarmouth Cineplex for Oct. 24. The Lighthouse, starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, has received a legion of rave reviews from film critics. Municipality of Yarmouth councilor Patti Durkee has been a strong advocate of the project from the start. On Oct. 3 she received news she was hoping for from Chris Cameron, the general manager of Cineplex Cinemas Yarmouth. “I have great news,” Cameron said. “We’re playing an advance screening of the Lighthouse on Thursday, Oct 24. This will likely be followed by a full week run after but I won’t know that for sure until Monday (Oct. 21).”

Durkee says she was told that essentially the film is being shown in the large urban centres right now and the only small place is Yarmouth.

Another source in the movie industry says a week-long showing of the film will happen in Yarmouth, and that if demand for tickets is high, the movie could run over several weeks in Yarmouth.
 

Excerpts from some of the reviews:

The astonishing Dafoe crushes the role of Thomas Wake, a pipe-chewing old salt who makes life hell for Ephraim Winslow (Pattinson), the apprentice who learns that a few weeks alone with Thomas is a recipe for madness. ~ Rolling Stone

Every scene includes another shocking discovery, another potentially crippling accident, another suspicious and possibly magical occurrence, so the viewer seems to be getting more and more pieces of an increasingly surreal puzzle, even if that puzzle is never quite complete. ~ BBC

Right from the start, Eggers pulls us into an outpost of otherworldly solitude as the suffused beam of the lighthouse pierces the soupy white fog. Mark Korven's nerve-jangling atonal score of brass, woodwinds and percussion mixes with the intricately layered soundscape of crashing waves and stinging wind, and foghorn blasts that might be mistaken for the cries of whales or the roars of sea monsters. ~ Hollywood Reporter
