The Tall Man finally returns to Nelson

It has been over two years since The Tall Man crew visited the Nelson and Ymir area and now the Canadian premiere has been announced.

It has been over two years since The Tall Man crew visited the Nelson and Ymir area, and now — after some delays — the Canadian premiere has been announced for the Capitol Theatre.

The official release of the film is September 25 with screenings in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago and the Nelson debut will be held on September 29.

“I’ve talked to some people who have seen it and they were really intrigued by all of the twists and turns,” said Darcy Hula, who is co-producing the premiere with the Capitol Theatre.

“It’s not really a horror movie per se, more of a Twilight Zone-ish experience.”

Reviews have appeared online and in the Nelson Starthanks to reporter Greg Nesteroff — but Hula said he had “no idea” what was going on with Netflix and other Internet availability.

The film showcases a lot of sights from around the area including Ymir and the CP train coming through Nelson.

“It’s really cool,” said Hula. “We have quite a bit of Nelson in the movie, which will be quite obvious to the folks from here.

“There is a lot of Ymir as well. The right side of Nelson facing south is in the movie and the left side is all computer generated for the most part. It’s kind of interesting seeing that. The train that we captured rumbling through Nelson actually appears in Ymir in the film.”

Hula estimated nearly $20,000 was generated for the local economy throughout the filming.

The proceeds of the Nelson premiere will be divided between the Capitol Theatre and a children’s charity selected by Kevin DeWalt of Minds Eye Entertainment.

“Whatever is left over from my end of things will be donated at the request of DeWalt to a children’s charity because in essence the film is about children,” said Hula.

“The director, Pascal Laugier, did a great job of the visuals. It’s really a beautiful, beautiful film. His whole [motivation] for doing this movie is his experience in Africa, seeing the challenges and troubles that children go through on a daily basis.”

Tickets are available now through the Capitol Theatre and are $12 per person.
