“City Paradise,” a short about an immigrant, and “Illusion” are two movies that will be screened Friday, June 22, at the Center for Living Compassion, 194 Gold Flat Road (Jacobson Chiropractic complex), Nevada City, 7-9 p.m.

“Illusion” stars Kirk Douglas, playing an ailing film producer who faces his past with a visit from a ghostly colleague. The ghost takes him through the Akashic records, showing him film reels from his unacknowledged son’s life. Can he make a difference at this point in their lives? Affecting and intense, this feature will have you on the edge of your seats! This one is for the adults in the family.

Free admission with donations accepted. Call Terri at (530) 432-7818 to reserve a seat. Visit spiri to find out more about the Spiritual Cinema Circle.
