The Port Moody Film Society wasn’t able to roll Pain and Glory, a movie by Spanish director Pedro Almodovar and starring Antonio Banderas, due to COVID-19 restrictions earlier this year; however, it will screen the rated-R movie tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Inlet Theatre (at Port Moody city hall, 100 Newport Dr.). Entry is $5 per person plus a $5 annual membership to the society. The theatre capacity is limited to 50 per cent, or 80 ticket-holders. Face masks and proof of vaccination are required for admission.
