FREE SOLO – climbing the 3000′ El Capitan without a rope
Feb 17 @ 2:00 pm

RESCHEDULED TO SUNDAY FEBRUARY 17 at 2:00pm due to storm

From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi (“MERU”) and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin comes National Geographic Documentary Film’s FREE SOLO, a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock … the 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park … without a rope.

Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold’s climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. Succeeding in this challenge, Honnold enters his story in the annals of human achievement. FREE SOLO is both an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who exceeded our current understanding of human physical and mental potential. The result is a triumph of the human spirit.

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

THE FAVOURITE
Feb 22 @ 7:00 pm

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper.

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 of Bear River and 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.

The response has been spectacular, touching people so deeply that audiences have lined up over a hour to share their own stories with her. It’s been described as raw and sweet, funny and heart-breaking all at once, an emotional romp from heart-wrenching to gut laughing. “She had you in the palm of your hand from the opening scene”, said one patron, while another said “Shelley Marshall was so brilliant! It really is very emotional to watch her story come to life. But the fact it could be so bloody funny as well?”

For five years, old Mommy’s Cigarette was been a sold-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

BIZET’S CARMEN – Met Opera
Mar 16 @ 2:00 pm

Mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine reprises her remarkable portrayal of opera’s ultimate seductress, a triumph in her 2017 debut performances, with impassioned tenors Yonghoon Lee and Roberto Alagna as her lover, Don José. Omer Meir Wellber and Louis Langrée share conducting duties for Sir Richard Eyre’s powerful production, a Met favorite since its 2009 premiere.

The opera takes place in and around Seville, a city that, by the time Carmen was written, had already served many operatic composers as an exotic setting conducive to erotic intrigues and turmoil (Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Verdi’s La Forza del Destino, among others). The hometown of Don Juan, the city also inspired Mozart with Don Giovanni, and Beethoven used Seville as the setting for a study of marital fidelity in Fidelio.
