ROMA
Feb 19 @ 7:30 pm
10 ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATIONS INCLUDING BEST PICTURE AND BEST DIRECTOR
In his deeply personal black-and-white marvel Roma, Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men) observes the smallest parts first, before expanding to gradually reveal the social and political canvas of 1970s Mexico City. An autobiographical elegy about his childhood and the women who raised him, Roma coalesces around episodic recollections, filmed with visual conviction.

The domestic helper at the heart of the story is the gentle-natured Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), who works for the affectionate but occasionally livid Sofia (Marina de Tavira) and the rest of her family. Cuarón honours Cleo’s unsung rituals: cleaning, looking after Sofia’s four children whom she loves like her own, interacting with her best friend and co-worker Adela, going on movie dates with her self-absorbed boyfriend, and so on.

At first, the lives of Cleo and Sofia run on parallel yet detached lines, save for regular household interactions and cozy evenings spent in front of the tv, where Cleo is treated as part of the family. But when a marital separation and an unwanted pregnancy upset the lives of the two women, their fates cross paths in a real sense for the first time. And, as the world around their new found female solidarity slowly crumbles, Roma’s physical and emotional scope grows and deepens.
  • Directed by Alfonso Cuarón
  • Starring Yalitza Aparicio and Marina de Tavira
  • Mexico / USA · Spanish and Mixtecan w/ subtitles
  • Rated NR · 2h 15m

    “There’s no other way to say it than to say it: “Roma” is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen, and one of the most moving.”A richly textured masterpiece, Roma is cinema at its purest and most human.”
    –The Wall Street Journal


    “At times it feels novelistic, a densely realised, intimate drama giving us access to domestic lives developing in what feels like real time. In its engagingly episodic way, it is also at times like a soap opera or telenovela. And at other times it feels resoundingly like an epic.”

    – The Guardian

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.”

Shelley Marshall’s HOLD MOMMY’S CIGARETTE
Mar 10 @ 2:00 pm

This is a stunning story of an unfiltered life, written and performed by Shelley Marshall, directed by Linda Kash. It took 10 years for Hamilton-born Marshall to create the work, the worthwhile result of resilience, recovery, and reflection while exploring many the genres of performance; clown, stand-up, improv, buffoon, and play.

For the past five years, old Mommy’s Cigarette has been a sell-out success in theatres in Toronto and surrounding cities, receiving Gold in the category of “Best Theatre Production” in 2013, “Best New Discovery” by Now Magazine, and nominated “Best Female Stand Up” in Canada by the Canadian Comedy Awards. Marshall has hosted the popular, televised Hamilton Music Awards for the past four years. In light of the national acclaim she has garnered, what makes Hold Mommy’s Cigarette such a success to Shelley personally is the attention it has contributed in raising mental health awareness. “I knew creating works of art that expressed my experience, my truth, and my understanding, were what would bring a joyful purpose to my life. I feel I not only have an opportunity, but an obligation, to convey a message that can help people heal.” Quickly blazing an uncharted trail, this comedic icon won’t be slowing down any time soon.

Marshall, who has recently settled in Bear River, Nova Scotia, invites you to come to her show with an open mind and promises you’ll leave with a full heart.

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

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

Mar 29 @ 7:00 pm

We are delighted to welcome YOUNG COMPANY PRODUCTIONS back to the King’s Theatre stage with an original production of Lewis Carroll’s classic story, ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND.

“Curiouser and curiouser”.

We very much hope you’ll enjoy the show. And if you don’t? “Off with their heads!”

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
