King’s Film Society Special Presentation
A powerful historic drama about the world’s oldest golf tournament
Tuesday, Sept. 5, 7:30 pm
Set against the early days of the sport and stunning landscape of Scotland, Tommy’s Honour is based on the intimate and powerfully moving true story of the relationship between “Old” Tom Morris and “Young” Tommy Morris, the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf.
As their fame grew, Tom and Tommy, Scotland’s Golf Royalty, were touched by drama and personal tragedy. At first matching his father’s success, Tommy’s talent and fame grew to outshine his father’s accomplishments as founder of the Open Championship in 1860, his stellar playing record, and his reputation as the local caddie master, greenskeeper and club & ball maker. In contrast to his public persona, Tommy’s inner turmoil ultimately led him to rebel against the aristocracy led by The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, and the parents who shunned his passionate relationship with his girlfriend-then-wife Meg Drinnen.
Historic Drama/102 min.
Director: Jason Connery
Cast: Peter Mullan, Jack Lowden, Ophelia Lovibond, Sam Neill
“Tommy’s Honour is a beautiful tribute to the game. I felt like we were dropped out of a time machine and given the chance ‘to feel’ what golf was like over a century and an half ago. It’s a film that takes you into the soul of the game. Remarkably well done and enjoyable on every level!”
— Bill Macatee, CBS Sports
“An engrossing and accessible celebration of the game’s modern origins, enhanced by striking locations and a standout cast, led by Scottish actors Peter Mullan and Jack Lowden.”

Multiple JUNO and ECMA Award-winning artist JOEL PLASKETT returns to King’s Theatre to open the 9th Annual Tournament of King’s!
This celebrated Canadian musician has built a successful career on his own terms, whether as a rocker with his band The Emergency, or a singer-songwriter playing solo gigs. He’s built a career on touring Canada, singing unique, original tunes. And he’s a King’s Theatre audience favourite.
SOLIDARITY: The debut album from BILL AND JOEL PLASKETT
While Canadian music fans know Joel Plaskett. Multiple JUNO Award winning songwriter. Multiple times on the Polaris Music Prize Short List. Sold out clubs and concert halls from one side of the country to the other.
But in 2017 he’ll be sharing the spotlight with his earliest musical influence- his father, Bill.
The album is a powerful collection of original and traditional songs, reflecting the duo’s individual journeys and personal politics.
From the introspective opening track, Dragonfly, a song about a paranormal experience that Joel had, to On Down the River, Bill’s closing track about leaving his home in England, the album is grounded in folk music but informed by rock and roll history.
Solidarity is a surprising and unique album, full of strong guitar playing and thoughtful, accessible songs. An excellent addition to the Plaskett catalogue and hopefully the first of many for the Plasketts.
TICKETS GO ON SALE JULY 25 (July 18 for King’s Theatre Members).
