LUCKY
Apr 17 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presents

LUCKY

USA, 2017
English
88 minutes
Comedy, drama

Having outdrank, outsmoked, and outlived all of his contemporaries in his off-the-map desert town, fiercely independent 90-year-old atheist Lucky (the late Harry Dean Stanton in his final role) finds himself unexpectedly thrust into a late-in-life journey of self exploration. Living alone in the blistering Arizona heat, he slopes along through life, occupying his time by walking around the dusty streets of his speck of a southwestern town. Lucky whiles away his time in a fixed routine that starts with yoga at home and breakfast at a diner, moves on to crossword puzzles and TV shows, and ends in a bar among life-worn regulars. (One of them, played by David Lynch, is grieving over the loss of his pet tortoise.) It’s never clear what Lucky has done with his life, but, with the first sign of failing health, he grows reminiscent, dredging up old regrets in gruffly sentimental monologues. Lucky makes for an incredible showcase for Stanton’s unique mastery of the wry, cantankerous wisdom that became his trademark. The film is a cinematic love letter to its legendary leading man, as well as a deeply felt meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.

“The late, great Stanton gets the perfect send-off playing an atheist loner kicking his own mortality down the road like a tin can that got in his way. His character may not believe in God. But what kind of fool doesn’t believe in Harry Dean Stanton?”
Rolling Stone

CARRY THE LOST
Apr 20 @ 7:30 pm

http://carrythelost.com/musichttp://

Carry The Lost is the epitome of the do-it-yourself work ethic. By fusing technical
know-how with artistic skill and several years of unassisted endeavours, the Halifax,
Nova Scotia based hard rock five-some—vocalist/guitarist Colin Tye, bassist Aidan
Zann-Roland, drummer Ken Ross, guitarist/vocalist Ave Trefry and acoustic
guitarist/vocalist Dana Perry—has built an established name, refined its sound and
accrued a loyal fan-base with nothing more than some time, touring miles and a few
excellent releases.

Yet, after a number of years as a self-backed entity, Carry The Lost is finally getting
its long awaited due. Carry The Lost is recording its full-length debut, “Alive Again”
with ECMA nominated Producer of the Year, Erien Eady-Ward at Codapop Studios.
Comprised of material written over the course of 2016-17, and influenced by the
likes of Black Stone Cherry, Seether, Stone Sour, Marshall Tucker Band, Brantley
Gilbert… Carry The Lost has been writing melodic hard rock that appeals to a broad
range of audiences.

 

Carry The Lost is continuing to take their music directly to the people with
consistent high-energy live shows. “We’ve been running parallel to everyone else,”
says Tye. “We’ve been doing our own thing, but it’s cool, because the fan-base that
we connect with is really our own fan-base. The people that are coming to our
shows are really coming to see us.”

When Jacqueline announces she is off for to visit her mother, an ideal opportunity presents itself for her husband Bernard to inveigle his chic, Parisian mistress Suzanne into their country cottage for the weekend.

FILM STARS DON’T DIE IN LIVERPOOL
May 8 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presents

FILM STARS DON’T DIE IN LIVERPOOL

UNITED KINGDOM, 2017
English
105 minutes

The sultry Gloria Grahame won a best supporting actress Oscar for her performance in 1952’s The Bad and the Beautiful. She appeared in films alongside Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum, Lana Turner, Kirk Douglas, and a bevy of other icons. Her star blazed brightly then faded quickly, but she did not disappear. How Grahame spent her later years is the subject of this beautiful — and rare — ode to life after fame. Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool features Annette Bening as Grahame and Jamie Bell (Nicholas Nicholby, Billy Elliot), as her lover Peter Turner, a working-class English actor. Drawing on Turner’s memoir of the same name, director Paul McGuigan fashions a moving narrative that embraces the high and lows of the erstwhile Hollywood star’s time spent living in Liverpool in the 1970s.
As the two embark on their romance, we follow them from England to Los Angeles, from stage to hospital, and from laughter to tears. Unorthodox and sincere, the film is the kind of showbiz love story seldom depicted onscreen.

“There is no denying the emotional force that this film develops, and for that, we can credit talented filmmakers and two stars working at the height of their powers.”
–The Hollywood Reporter

“What an astounding actress Annette Bening is. And she’s at her very best playing Gloria Grahame, a screen siren of the 1940s and 1950s, who faced a health crisis in her final days with the help of a new love (a terrific Jamie Bell).”
– Rolling Stone

WALK WITH ME – Doc about Zen Buddhism
May 11 @ 7:00 pm
‘Walk With Me’ is meditative film about a community of Zen Buddhist monks and nuns who have dedicated their lives to mastering the art of mindfulness with their world-famous teacher Thich Nhat Hanh.

Directors & Writers: Marc J. Francis, Max Pugh

Stars: Benedict Cumberbatch, Thich Nhát Hanh, Brother Pháp De

 

 

“Slow down and breathe. This contemplative journey follows in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and is a rare insight into life within a monastic community. The sun rises. Everything is calm and still. Life is beautifully serene as Benedict Cumberbatch’s composed, meditative voice reads an extract from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. So begins Max Pugh and Marc J Francis’ (Black Gold, LFF2006) fascinating and immersive exploration of what it means to devote one’s life to mindfulness. With unprecedented access to the famous secluded monastery of Plum Village in the South West of France, Walk With Me captures the daily routine and rituals of monks and nuns on a quest to develop a deep sense of presence. It is an insightful rumination on the pursuit of happiness, living in the present and our attachment to material things – a welcome remedy to the stresses of city life and a world in turmoil.” — Laure Bonville, London Film Festival

 —————————————-

GARDEN OF THE GODS: The Flora and Ecology of Namaqualand

Namaqualand is the semi-arid to arid region in the northwest corner of South Africa, comprising an area roughly the size of New Brunswick. Although Namaqualand has no defined political boundaries, it falls primarily within the province of Northern Cape. What makes it so remarkable botanically and striking visually is that it is the home of approximately 4000 plant species, most of which bloom within the same period of approximately one to two months (late July through early September), following the spring rains that normally begin in late April or May. (By comparison, the great spring floral displays of West Australia are comprised of far fewer species.) Although the spring rains can be very sporadic, most years they are sufficient to bring forth good to incredible floral displays, which may be apparent along the main north-south highway commencing around Vanrhysndorp and continuing north almost to the border with Namibia. However, the greatest discoveries are invariably made by persons who go slowly, wander along unpaved secondary routes and farm roads, then get out of their vehicles and walk in search of plant specimens in the highly varied, often rocky landscape.

Freeman first travelled to Namaqualand in 1980 and returned in 2018 for his 40th extended visit. For 25 years, beginning in 1982 he conducted four annual wild-flower workshops at the Kamieskroon Hotel in the little village of the same name. During this period he amassed what is unquestionably the world’s largest collection of photographs of Namaqualand in bloom, although the University of Stellenbosch has the largest picture collection of individual species. Also, through his educational efforts in conservation and preservation, he helped to initiate land purchases that eventually led to the creation of Namaqualand National Park, which begins across the road from the Kamieskroon Hotel and now extends 70km to the coast and outward from there to include 100km. of the ocean floor.

Beginning in 2007 and continuing to the present, Freeman has led a two-week wilderness camping tour in March (autumn), the first week from a base camp on the Atlantic coast in Namaqualand National Park, the second week in the Richtersveld National Park, the spectacular mountain desert in the far north of Namaqualand along the Orange River, the border with Namibia. Some years this trip also provides the opportunity to see and photograph varieties of March lilies, a few striking species that bloom in autumn, but send forth leaves only after the spring rains.

Namaqualand, the small village of Kamieskroon, and the little Kamieskroon Hotel have become Freeman’s second home. In this program he invites you to visit him there.

REBECCA PERRY’S Confessions of a Redheaded Coffee Shop Girl
May 13 @ 2:00 pm

Anthropology graduate Joanie Little is stuck working as a barista. Rather than let this get her down, she decides to make the most of her “underemployment”. So, much like Jane Goodall did with chimpanzees, this upbeat Miss studies her only available subjects: the eccentric customers of her coffee shop ‘jungle’. Hilarity ensues, with jazzy tunes, co-worker showdowns, life lessons and even a bit of romance. Created and developed by Toronto’s critically acclaimed solo performer, Rebecca Perry, Joanie Little brews up a comedic storm that you won’t want to miss! Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl is the internationally successful show for anyone who has ever had a job they didn’t like.

  • “Impeccable comic timing and faultless delivery. Perry is an animated and engaging performer.” – ★★★★★ – The Nouse UK
  • “Clever, amusing and wonderfully executed… I would highly recommend you see it.” – Arts Award Voice
  • “Her comedic timing is spot on, her acting is superb as she slips in and out of characters, and her singing is pitch perfect. The description for the show says that it’s suitable for ages 9-99 and I think that’s true.” – Mooney on Theatre
  • “Loved every minute of Rebecca Perry’s “Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl.” What a talented, generous artist. And, what pipes! Even bought the CD.” – NNNN – Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine
  • This is solo show performance at its best, with Perry rolling out a cast of characters in Joanie’s world like a wild kingdom field guide. I dare you not to fall in love with Joanie Little – and, by extension, Rebecca Perry.” – Life With More Cowbell

RAWLINS CROSS – Sold Out!
May 19 @ 7:30 pm

SOLD OUT!

Rawlins Cross, one of Canada’s most accomplished and beloved Celtic bands, was formed in St. John’s in the late 1980s by songwriting brothers Dave Panting (guitar and mandolin) and Geoff Panting (keyboards and accordion) and Ian McKinnon (highland pipes and tin whistle). Since then, Rawlins Cross has been at the vanguard of the fusion of Celtic traditional music with the rhythms of rock, pop and worldbeat music. Equally at ease with a soulful Highland Air (MacPherson’s Lament) or a raucous party song (Colleen, Reel ‘n’ Roll, Rock Steady), Rawlins Cross never fails to electrify its faithful fans. Over its nearly 30 year run, Rawlins Cross has always been a “fan favourite” on the North American and European concert and festival circuits.

The band burst onto the East Coast recording scene in late ’89 with its first indie recording, A Turn of the Wheel and a video for the single Colleen. Just weeks after its release, Colleen scored a top ten radio slot on Toronto’s influential CFNY station and Rawlins Cross was on its way.

In 1992, the band released Crossing The Border, which further developed the ground-breaking fusion of highland bagpipes, mandolin and accordion with a rocking rhythm section. A year later the band recorded Reel ‘n’ Roll, which would prove to be its best-selling commercial success and launch a national radio hit with the title track. With the solid rhythm section of Halifax bassist Brian Bourne and Ontario-based drummer Howie Southwood, Rawlins Cross enlisted PEI singer Joey Kitson to complete its signature sound.

Already one of the top concert draws in the region, and with a growing fanbase across Canada and in Europe, Rawlins Cross released Living River in 1995, which garnered two Juno Award nominations. The band toured Canada three times that year and signed a licensing deal for its music in Europe.

During that period Rawlins Cross performed live on the nationally-televised East Coast Music Awards before an audience of two million viewers.

The band expanded its international audience by headlining the 9th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Celebration Festival in Germany and also representing Canada at the Expo Cumbre de las Americas in Santiago, Chile.

Two more albums followed: Celtic Instrumentals in 1997, a retrospective collection and the studio album Make It On Time, which would prove to be the band’s last album for more than a decade. With total album sales topping 100,000 units, Rawlins Cross has been one of the region’s most successful bands.

In 2008 Rawlins Cross reunited after a several year hiatus and released Anthology, a compilation of its best recorded songs. In Fall 2010, the band released Heart Head Hands (GroundSwell/ Warner Music). This marked the band’s first full album release in 12 years. Around that time, the band performed for Queen Elizabeth II at a large outdoor event in Halifax.

Rawlins Cross, has, again, rekindled their magic with their six-track EP, Rock Steady, released December 1st, 2017 through GroundSwell Music. Rock Steady was co-produced by Jon Landry and Geoff Panting. This collection of new songs along with a string of successful festival performances, has added some spring to the step of this venerable East Coast act.

FOXTROT
May 22 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presents

FOXTROT

ISRAEL/GERMANY/FRANCE/SWITZERLAND, 2017
Hebrew, Arabic, German w/ English subtitles
114 minutes

Samuel Maoz’s debut feature, Lebanon, was set during the 1982 Lebanon War, and shot almost entirely inside of a tank. Foxtrot, his second feature, steps away from that fevered claustrophobia to tell another maddening story of war and conflict, but this one on a much broader canvas. Michael (Lior Ashkenazi) and Dafna (Sarah Adler) experience gut-wrenching grief when army officials show up at their home to
announce the death of their son, Jonathan. Unable to find any solace in the well-meaning condolences of their extended family, or in the empty patriotic platitudes of bureaucrats, Michael spirals into anger only to subsequently experience one of life’s unfathomable twists — a twist that can only be rivaled by the surreal military experiences of his son. Foxtrot examines both the strength and the absurdity of military service from several points of view. Moving from the grieving parents’ apartment to the remote military post where Jonathan was stationed, Maoz shows us precisely how much damage can ensue when young soldiers, barely able to tell their toe from a trigger, experience boredom, privation, and loneliness. Although there is a terrible tragedy at the heart of the film, Foxtrot contains many
moments laced with mordant humour, irony, and sincere emotional connection.

“Brilliantly constructed with a visual audacity that serves the subject rather than the other way around, this is award-winning filmmaking on a fearless level.”
– Variety

NEIL DIAMOND TRIBUTE: Jay White
May 25 @ 7:30 pm

For some 25 years Jay White has been providing audiences with the ultimate stage experience, convincing them that he IS Neil Diamond.  Critics call Jay White one of the world’s most convincing recreations.

Energizing stages with a touch of class and a dash of Rock-n-Roll, Jay continues the musical legacy of Neil Diamond in 5 countries and over 9000 shows. White just wrapped up an eight-year, 2000 show run in Las Vegas  — the longest running act of its kind in the U.S.

Leeza Gibbons of “Entertainment Tonight” wrote: “He’s uncanny and truly amazing!”

In 2008, Hollywood Director Ron Howard cast Jay to play Neil Diamond in the Academy Award nominated film “Frost/Nixon”. In 2011, Jay was cast as Diamond in the musical drama film “Beautiful Noise”.

In 1996 and 2002, White met Diamond before his Vegas MGM appearances, where Neil told Jay to “keep singing, so I can stay home and relax! Your friend in music”.

From passionate crowds rushing the stage to 18,000 screaming fans in Salt Lake City, White brings his show to King’s Theatre, where you will believe that he IS Neil Diamond.

(Holding box office records worldwide, with 38 songs in the Top 10 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts, Neil Diamond has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling musicians of all time. A legendary singer, songwriter and performer, Diamond has toured the world consecutively for 50 years. Diamond just announced his retirement from touring due to his recent diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. )

XARA Choral Theatre: RISE
Jun 3 @ 2:00 pm

Xara Choral Theatre is breaking the boundaries of choral performance. Weaving together contemporary choral singing, movement, lighting, and spoken word, their breakthrough performances tell stories that are transformative for audiences and performers alike.

 

XARA CHORAL THEATRE invites you to celebrate ten years of choral innovation and the fiercely talented performers who have helped them make their mark, along with the stories that have inspired the work.

RISE is a collection of four short pieces of choral theatre. Each explores what it means to be a woman searching for agency and fighting for change while trying to honour her elders and her past. 

The ensemble will be joined by Xara alumnae, several young singers from our Chrysalis Youth Mentorship program, and guest artists Rebecca Thomas, and Michelle Raine. Each section of the show has been collaboratively developed with the featured artist and will include a re-imagined Greek myth, slam poetry, and vulnerable monologue. Music will vary from new works by Canadians Don Macdonald and Kim Baryluk to music by Finnish, Tamilian, and African-American composers.

The narratives that come alive through this show celebrate, affirm, challenge, and mourn the unique roles women play in our culture. It may leave you with new perspectives on the many ways of being a woman, a protector, and a bearer of history.

THE PARTY
Jun 5 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presents

THE PARTY


  • UK, 2017
  • 71 mins.
  • Comedy, Drama

A comedy wrapped around a tragedy, The Party unfolds in real time in a house in London in the present day. Janet is hosting an intimate gathering of friends to celebrate her promotion to Shadow Minister of Health in the party of opposition. Her husband, Bill, seems preoccupied. As their friends arrive, some of who have their own dramatic news to share, the soirée gradually unravels. An announcement by Bill provokes a series of revelations that rapidly escalate into all-out confrontation. As people’s illusions about themselves and each other go up in smoke, along with the canapés, The Party becomes a night that began with champagne but ends with blood on the floor. Directed and written by Sally Potter.
Starring: Patricia Clarkson, Kristen Scott Thomas and Timothy Spall.

“A deliciously heightened, caviar-black comedy that sets up its brittle, bourgeois characters like bowling pins and gleefully knocks them down in 71 minutes flat.”

– Variety

“Observant and smart…. It plays out in real time with elegance and dispatch, cantering up to a cheeky punch line twist which leaves you laughing over the final credits.”
–The Guardian

THERESA MALENFANT & JOHN CAMPBELLJOHN
Jun 9 @ 7:30 pm

CELEBRATE THE BLUES WITH LEGENDS THERESA MALENFANT & JOHN CAMPBELLJOHN!

Hailing from Dieppe, NB, Theresa Malenfant grew up surrounded by a musically-talented family. She made her singing debut at the age of fourteen and was soon on stage, dueting with the great Dutch Mason. After many years of success, both in her native Canada and during a five year stint living and performing in Europe, Malenfant has a number of critically acclaimed albums to her credit and 30 years of performing under her belt. The vocal powerhouse in the tradition of Janis Joplin and Etta James has amassed an incredible career, one that has shown no signs of slowing down.

 

John Campbelljohn’s acoustic blues performances he makes the most of the song. Campbelljohn soulfully commands the stage with rich vocals, while his powerfully prolific technique on guitar or trusty dobro lap steel further embellishes each composition. His power trio ups the ante with an electric sound that can pummel an audience into submission or captivate them with the subtleties of ace musicians driven solely by the love of their craft.

A tight rhythm section fronted by Campbelljohn’s distinctive prowess on slide guitar quickly demonstrates that, although John’s a Cape Bretoner, he’s been cut from a plaid of a very different color. Power blues that touch on rock, reggae and roots with a few overtones of pure country – these are John Campbelljohn’s stock and trade. He’s also added the wondrous sounds of the pedal steel to his live band shows to haunting effect. The overall quality of the musicianship, the energy of his delivery and the guaranteed good times that spring from the band’s performances are proof of the pudding.

Acoustically, John combines the influences of such diverse players as Fred McDowell, Ry Cooder and John Hammond while his electric shows earmark everyone from Sonny Landreth to Johnny Winter, Clapton to Duane Allman. A simple listen to any of his six CD releases tell the tale that John Campbelljohn – solo or otherwise – is a born performer and a credit to his accomplishments: Blues Artist of the Year, Guitarist of the Year, Slide Guitarist of the Year. His is a sophisticated, well-informed and progressive definition of the blues and his distinctive edge has been applauded from Sydney to Stuttgart. Treat yourself to something truly fan-friendly and fun with a no-nonsense master of many genres.

Mozart’s COSI FAN TUTTE – Met Opera
Jun 10 @ 2:00 pm

A winning cast comes together for Phelim McDermott’s clever vision of Mozart’s comedy about the sexes, set in a carnival-esque, funhouse environment inspired by 1950s Coney Island—complete with bearded ladies, fire eaters, and a Ferris wheel. Manipulating the action are the Don Alfonso of Christopher Maltman and the Despina of Tony Award–winner Kelli O’Hara, with Amanda Majeski, Serena Malfi, Ben Bliss, and Adam Plachetka as the pairs of young lovers who test each other’s faithfulness. David Robertson conducts.

 

  • Estimated Run Time: 3 hrs 20 mins
  • Sung In Italian, Met Titles In English

 

Premiere: Vienna, Court Theater, 1790. The third and final collaboration between Mozart and librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte is a fascinating paradox: a frothy comedy of manners with an intensely dark take on human nature; an old story (it has antecedents in Boccaccio, Shakespeare, and Cervantes, among others) with a startlingly modern tone; and a beautiful score depicting questionable behavior. Così fan tutte was only moderately successful at its premiere and remained just outside the standard repertoire for more than a century. Così still poses unique challenges, and correspondingly unique rewards, for the public today. Every possible impression of love—from the loftiest to the basest—is explored in this extraordinary opera.
