“Films on My Mind” is the title of this mural. Zach Abney the lead artist, and Nancy Kuchta his assistant completed painting the mural in September. The unveiling of this mural included live music and free food where we encouraged citizens of Kamloops to attend. The event helped commemorate another successful addition to our growing number of murals in the downtown area. Located on the Paramount Theatre (at 503 Victoria Street), this mural brings life to various films.
“Films on my Mind” features a number of scenes from five different films that have played at the Paramount. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is one of the films features in this mural and it was the first film known to play in the Paramount theatre. Abney suggests that this piece of art portrays individuals recollecting the scenes from the depicted films. These films stick with us. Therefore this represented with the painting fading from the silhouette of a face to a specific movie scene.
