Last Monday at the Movies is returning to New Westminster this month — and it's on the move to a new location.

The Arts Council of New Westminster's film series is kicking off its 20th season on Sept. 26 with a screening of I Love My Dad

This season, the movie series — which brings Canadian and international films to local audiences — moves from its traditional home at Massey Theatre to the Anvil Centre Theatre downtown (777 Columbia St.).

Laura Grady, executive director of the arts council, said the group is excited to make the move.

"This venue offers the perfect movie viewing experience, and the downtown location makes it accessible to a wider audience," she said in a press release. "We are looking forward to a great series of films in this new space and creating a welcoming community event in the Anvil Centre."

I Love My Dad is a comedy inspired by writer-director-star James Morosini's true-life experience. The story follows chuck (Patton Oswalt), a hopelessly estranged father who wants to reconnect with his troubled son, Franklin (Morosini). Blocked on social media, Chuck impersonates a waitress online and starts checking in with Franklin — but things begin to spiral when Franklin falls for the imaginary girl.

All Last Monday movies will show on the last Monday of each month, from September to June, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and the film starting at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $10 general admission, or $9 for students and seniors; season passes for all the films are $70 general, or $65 for students and seniors.
