While there are multiple showtimes to choose from, the film is playing this weekend only, so be sure to purchase your tickets now!  The plot centers around an unassuming  girl from a rural village, but whose identity in the virtual world “U” (think Metaverse)  is that of a famous popstar! When one of her concerts gets crashed, Belle has to find out who’s behind it. This film is eerily relevant today and combines the concept of Jem/Hannah Montanna with the not-so-virtual realities teenagers face growing up in the age of social media.
