STAN & OLLIE
Feb 26 @ 7:30 pm

The true story of Hollywood’s greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy, is brought to the big screen for the first time. Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the inimitable movie icons, Stan and Ollie is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair’s triumphant farewell tour. With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) – a formidable double act in their own right – the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.

  • Directed by Jon S. Baird
  • Starring John C. Reilly, Steve Coogan, Shirley Henderson, and Nina Arianda
  • UK / Canada / USA · English
  • Rated G · 1h 37m

As a winsome glance back, and as a piece of artistic preservation, Stan & Ollie would be enjoyable enough. But it becomes truly transcendent in the hands of John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan.”

COLD WAR
Mar 12 @ 7:30 pm

Set during the eponymous state of geopolitical tension following World War II, Cold War is a portrait of the complex relationship between two doomed lovers and their country.

An epic, visually arresting love story spanning borders and decades by master filmmaker Paweł Pawlikowski, director of the Academy Award–winning Ida, Cold War employs a luminous black-and-white palette and is beautifully and deliberately composed, the fluidity of its roving camerawork washing over you like a dream.

Wiktor (Tomasz Kot) is a talent scout travelling through rural Poland to recruit artists for a music and dance ensemble. When Zula (Joanna Kulig), a determined woman with a streak of darkness, sings for him, he is instantly entranced. As it becomes clear that the ensemble is forming a Stalinist agenda, Wiktor and Zula defect to the west side of the Iron Curtain while on tour. The two then embark on a tempestuous love affair that is as syncopated and elliptical as the jazz that infuses the film. Both are hardened but damaged survivors of their circumstances, weighed down by a lifetime of compromises and the omnipresent necessity of self-interest. In times of peace, they take each other for granted, but in times of extreme hardship, they always reunite with a crystallized sense of perspective and purpose.

  • Directed by Pawel Pawlikowski
  • Starring Joanna Kulig and Tomasz Kot
  • Poland / France / UK ·
    Polish, French, Russian, German, Italian, and Croatian w/ English subtitles
  • Rated NR · 1h 28m

 

“This is the refined work of an artist at the peak of his powers, and, dare we say it, a masterpiece.” – CineVue

“It’s visually stunning, passionate, wistful, and thoughtful in equal measure.” – Vulture

“The crystalline black-and-white cinematography exalts its moments of intimate grimness and its dreamlike showpieces of theatrical display. It is an elliptical, episodic story of imprisonment and escape, epic in scope.” –The Guardian

ROYAL WOOD
Mar 17 @ 2:00 pm

Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, multiple JUNO-nominated artist Royal Wood is a musical gem. Since being proclaimed “Songwriter of the Year” by iTunes, Wood has continued to evolve and hone his musical craft – maintaining an unmistakable identity while uncovering and reinventing his sound.

About his new album ‘Something About You’: To capture the rawest possible sound, most of the songs on the album were recorded the day they were written, with Royal playing the majority of the instruments. As fate would have it, Royal recorded the album on the Beatles EMI console that made Abbey Road possible. “Every day I walked into the studio in London UK with the ghosts of my musical heroes sitting beside me,” said Royal. “All of my life I wanted to make music with the Beatles, and now I feel like I have,” he joked.

His soulful ballads and intimate banter never fail to sweep audiences off their feet. He is AMAZING, you won’t want to miss this show.

IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK
Mar 26 @ 7:30 pm

 For the follow-up to his Oscar-winning hit and Film Circuit favourite Moonlight, Barry Jenkins returns with this moving period piece about a pregnant woman fighting to prove her fiancé’s innocence after he is wrongfully jailed for rape. Based on James Baldwin’s 1974 novel of the same name, If Beale Street Could Talk marks the first English-language film adaptation of the legendary US writer and activist’s work.

Set in the early 1970s in the predominantly Latin American community of East Harlem, the film follows Tish (Kiki Layne), a 19-year-old woman who falls in love with Fonny (Stephan James), a young sculptor. Their brief idyll is broken when Fonny is suddenly arrested, placed in a police lineup—in which he is the only Black man—and framed for the rape of a local woman. Tish, who has just discovered she is pregnant, and her family must fight to prove Fonny’s innocence. With this thought-provoking and still-timely story, Jenkins manages to preserve both the politics and the romantic spirit of Baldwin’s celebration of the power of love and hope in times of despair.

One of the most highly anticipated films of the year, If Beale Street Could Talk reunites writer-director Jenkins with Moonlight’s powerhouse production team for a stunning and honest story of an American couple determined to fight for love, freedom and justice in their own society.

  • Directed by Barry Jenkins
  • Starring Kiki Layne, Stephan James, Regina King, and Colman Domingo
  • USA · English
  • Rated PG · 1h 50m

 

“Jenkins captures the humor, verve, and considerable complexity of the prose.” – The Playlist

“In some ways Beale feels less like a movie than a well-staged, meticulously shot play; a period piece that floats beyond its specific time and place and into the realm of allegory.” – Entertainment Weekly

“It’s a film with love at its root, both familial and romantic, and Jenkins fills so much of it with a radiating warmth.” –The Guardian

ERIC HARPER
Apr 7 @ 7:30 pm

Eric Harper’s live show is a spectacle. Bending his hilarious and heart-felt story-telling with his mad, virtuosic Flamenco/Fado guitar skills and soulful voice, you are guaranteed to laugh, cry and dance in your seat.

Eric is an multi-award winning musician who creates a style that is not only all his own, but his music is melodically entrancing, virtuosically ferocious and harmonically soul-stirring to the core.

Hatched from a small “po-dunk” town in Arkansas, tempered by the hard-worn guitarists of Portugal, inspired by the fantastical Flamenco from Gypsies in Spain, modernized by the transformative education of Berklee College of Music in Boston and currently camping out amongst the Canucks in Canada, Eric brings a fusion of music never experienced before by a “redneck”.

Eric released his first solo album in 2008 entitled “Romper a Madrugada” which was played in countries all over the world from Portugal to Brazil, the Azores and Madeira island, Canada and the States. After that he release his self-titled CD “Eric Harper”, in 2010, garnering the attention of people like Rainn Wilson from The Office and Grammy-Award Winning Producer KC Porter.

In 2013 he released his instrumental CD entitled “Ribeira” showcasing his virtuosic guitar skills. Since 2000 Eric has won multiple awards not only for his guitar skills but also for his Film Scoring talents. He has had music placed on over 600 TV shows to date and has scored several movies.  He has performed all around the globe from Portugal to China, Canada to Mexico, Switzerland to Israel, France to Spain and many more countries.

SHOPLIFTERS
Apr 9 @ 7:30 pm
SHOPLIFTERS

Hirokazu Kore-eda (After the Storm; Our Little Sister; Like Father, Like Son) continues to tell stories of complicated familial relationships in his latest feature, Shoplifters. Winner of the 2018 Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, the film explores the ways in which the comfort and security of a loving family can sometimes overshadow morally questionable behaviour.

Osamu (Lily Franky), his wife, Nobuyo (Sakura Andô), and their family are struggling to live in Tokyo off pension money and the income from their low-paying jobs. As a result, they turn to shoplifting as a means of survival. One day, when Osamu is shoplifting with his son Shota (Jyo Kairi), they come across Yuri (Miyu Sasaki), a young girl who appears to be homeless. They bring her home for dinner and, soon after discovering signs of abuse, decide to take her in as one of their own, eventually training her in the “family business.” When the family hears that Yuri’s abusive parents are looking for her, they cut her hair and rename her Rin to keep her safe.

While it is clear the family will go to almost any lengths to gain financial stability, Rin’s new family provides her with a loving, supportive, and nurturing environment. Shoplifters asks the audience to consider which life is more desirable: one full of love and support but that is tied to unethical and illegal actions, or a life that is “approved” but ultimately empty.

  • Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda
  • Starring Lily Franky, Sakura Andô, Jyo Kairi, and Miyu Sasaki
  • Japan · Japanese w/ subtiles
  • Rated 14A · 2h 1m

 

“Shoplifters is compassionate, socially conscious filmmaking with a piercing intelligence that is pure Kore-eda. This is a film that steals in and snatches your heart.” –The Telegraph

“A tender ensemble piece whose skillful performances dovetail into a perfectly symphonic whole, Shoplifters is a work of such emotional delicacy and formal modesty that you’re barely prepared when the full force of what it’s doing suddenly knocks you sideways.”  Los Angeles Times

“Kore-Eda is working up to something else, steering the story he’s built so carefully toward an utterly unexpected detour. As much of what we think we know unravels, the film becomes not just an enjoyable, intermittently poignant portrait of imperfect people but a profound meditation on the meaning of family.”  –Entertainment Weekly

CATHERINE MACLELLAN’s Tribute to Gene MacLellan
Apr 13 @ 7:30 pm

Catherine MacLellan has become one of Canada’s finest and favourite singer-songwriters on her own merits. She’s kept away from the media circus and celebrity scene, preferring to live at home in rural P.E.I. She’s worked diligently at her craft, releasing a series of remarkable, creative albums, culminating in the Juno Award-winning The Raven’s Sun from 2014, to go along with multiple East Coast Music Awards, Canadian Folk Music Awards, and Music PEI Awards. Most impressively, she has chosen to carve out her career path without trading on her family name.

That’s pretty hard to do, when your father is one of the country’s most famous songwriters. Gene MacLellan wrote two world-wide, multi-million selling smash hits: “Snowbird” by Anne Murray, and “Put Your Hand in the Hand” by Ocean. There are dozens more gems, including “The Call”, “Bidin’ My Time”, “Shilo Song” and “The Reunion Song”. But Catherine insisted on making it on her own.

MacLellan has gone from shying away from those songs to fully embracing them, with a stunning new album celebrating her father’s musical legacy. If It’s Alright With You – The Songs of Gene MacLellan contains 13 of her father’s most famous compositions, songs that propelled him to fame nearly 50 years ago, and remain the gold standard for Canadian songwriting.

LEAHY
Apr 16 @ 7:30 pm

Over the course of their notable career, Canadian group Leahy has secured a place as one of the country’s most highly regarded progressive folk-roots bands.  Their emergence on the Canadian music scene in the late 1990’s with their chart-topping instrumental single “Call to Dance”, introduced audiences to a new way of accessing a uniquely Canadian music genre.  The “Leahy sound” – a combination of strong stride piano, unique bass guitar and drumming styles along with driving rhythm guitar – was the foundation from which wildly talented fiddle led instrumentals and vocals were launched to mainstream music listeners.  Leahy would go on to win three Juno awards and receive countless accolades for their dynamic and powerful performances.

To date Leahy has sold more than half a million albums worldwide. They have been featured in three PBS television specials – Leahy Live in Concert, Gael Force (with the Chieftains), and Leahy Live from Gatineau, Quebec – and are the subject of an Academy Award winning documentary, The Leahys: Music Most of All.  As well as touring extensively throughout Canada, the USA and Europe in support of three acclaimed records – Leahy, Lakefield, and In All Things – the band had the enviable opportunity of opening for fellow Canadian, Shania Twain, throughout the USA, Canada and the UK on her record-breaking Come On Over tour.

Since early 2017 Leahy has been back in the studio recording new music.  The focus is on songs and the band’s original songwriting and instrumental compositions.  The result is a wide-ranging collection that reflects the individual personalities that make up Leahy.  Built on their roots and the distinctive “Leahy sound”, their new material reveals the band’s drive to continue pushing beyond its traditional footings.  It’s a powerful record that delivers a sumptuous feast of solid music, pulse-raising rhythms, compelling storytelling and infectious melodies.

On the edge of a new chapter in their career, some things don’t change – the experience.  An encounter with Leahy is inimitable. Performances are full of energy, big rich sound, poignant songs, fiery instrumentals and percussive step-dancing – all delivered with unapologetic passion! In one word – unforgettable.

The line up is….
Erin – piano, fiddle, vocals, step-dancing
Frank – drums, fiddle
Maria – guitar, mandolin, banjo, vocals, step-dancing
Siobheann – bass, vocals, fiddle, step-dancing
Julie – piano, vocals, keyboards
Denise – vocals, guitar, piano, step-dancing

May 2 @ 7:30 pm

The rise, demise, and resurrection of the best damn guitar player you’ve never heard of; the Nashville Hurricane.

During the course of this 75 minute one man masterpiece the audience learns about Henry Waltrip (the Nashville Hurricane) from his humble trailer park beginnings alongside his white trash mother, Brenda to the crazy gigs on the road with his blues playing mentor, Tyrone.

A Curious Tale of Fingerpickin’ Fury

40 years ago a mysterious acoustic guitarist appeared from nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without a trace… until now. Chase Padgett becomes a manager, a mother, a mentor, and the guitar prodigy himself as each one tells their side of the rise, demise, and resurrection of the best damn guitar player you’ve never heard of; the Nashville Hurricane.

“If this isn’t worth 75 minutes of your time than I don’t know what is.” – Houston Press
