THE GARDENER
Jun 23 @ 7:00 pm
King’s Theatre Special presentation in partnership with the
King’s Film Society and the Annapolis Historic Gardens
in celebration of National Garden Week
  • Doors open at 6pm, special treats, Velma’s bar and back deck.
  • The Historic Gardens will provide ‘Garden Baby’ door prizes!
  • The Champlain Garden Club will introduce the film
  • Check out the garden-themed art in the lobby
Sébastien Chabot | Canada | 2016 | 87 min 
The Gardener is a documentary reflecting on the meaning of gardening and its impact on our lives.


Shortly before his passing at the age of 86, influential gardener and horticulturalist Frank Cabot recounts his personal quest for perfection at Les Quatre Vents, his 20 acres English-style garden and summer estate.
Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Charlevoix County in Quebec, Les Quatre Vents has become one of the world’s foremost private gardens. Created over three generations, it is an enchanted place of beauty and surprise, a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century.

Through the words of Cabot and his family, and with the participation of gardening experts and writers, the film looks back at this remarkable man’s personal story and the artistic philosophy that gave birth to one of the greatest gardens in the world. This poetic doc shows the harmonious relationship between people and nature and offers a compelling call for preservation.
Directed and produced by Sébastien Chabot    

 

General Admission at the Door.

$12 ($1 off with Film Buff card).

Doors open at 6pm, film starts at 7pm.

DAVID MYLES – Golf Tee-up Concert
Sep 7 @ 7:30 pm

We are excited to welcome the wonderful DAVID MYLES back to King’s Theatre to kick off the 10th Annual Tournament of King’s!

THANKS TO OUR OFFICIAL CONCERT SPONSOR JUST US

Nattily dressed in a suit and tie, wearing his trademark specs, he looks like Buddy Holly transposed to an after-hours supper club. But Myles’s music conveys a populist appeal that leaves no one lacking. – No Depression

Rock ’n’ roll’s diverse, electrifying roots dig deep into David Myles’ tenth album, Real Love. You can hear them in the old-school Johnny Cash shuffle and lightning-in-a-bottle twang of “Night And Day.” They pull you by the hand and dance slowly to the swingy drums and ‘50s-era, Roy Orbison croon of “Easy.” With the rousing orchestral thrill of “Night After Night,” they sprawl out into simmering soul as Myles seethes at a lover who’s been running around with another. Over Real Love’s 13 tracks, written as razor-sharp as Myles’ signature suits, those roots grow into a spectacular family tree of American musical tradition—with all its blood, sweat, and tears—that’s as endlessly entertaining as it is riveting.

 

 

Just a few seats left! Please call the Box Office at 902-532-7704.

VAN GOGH: Of Wheat Fields & Clouded Skies
Sep 22 @ 7:00 pm

Van Gogh: Of Wheat Fields and Clouded Skies

Masterpieces from the Kröller-Müller Museum

SPECIAL FEATURE PRESENTATION

Doors open at 6pm for Wine & Popcorn. Reserve Seating available.

On Saturday September 22, King’s Theatre introduces a new kind of program called “Special Feature Presentation”. These are special, limited release films that are being presented with reserve seating options and “Wine & Popcorn” one hour before the show. First up is a “VAN GOGH: Of Wheat Fields and Clouded Skies”.

 

Van Gogh is a huge favourite amongst King’s Theatre audiences. This feature is a new look at the Van Gogh legacy through the world’s largest private collection, that of Helene Kröller-Müller (1869-1939). In the early 20th Century, she bought nearly 300 of his works, paintings and drawings.


The story unfolds with a woman who identified with Van Gogh’s spiritual torment, and came to buy priceless artistic treasures. The collection is set in the naturalistic and architectural beauty of the vast De Hoge Weluge park.
It tells the parable of the painter’s life, using passages from his brother Theo’s letters to set the pace of the exhibition, and it shows images of the places he lived and stayed in, from Paris to Provence.


This collection and of the burning passion for art that led to it offers an outstanding window into the life and art of Van Gogh. ‘Amid wheat fields and clouded skies’ brings together 40 paintings and 85 drawings from the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, Holland, now home to Helene’s heritage.


The feature tells us about Van Gogh’s art and his genius, and allows us to understand the importance of drawing as part of his artistic technique. His seemingly instinctive canvases were the result of long, preparatory studies, not sketches but complete works of art in themselves, where the broken flow of lines that characterizes the style of his paintings can already be found.

 

Doors open at 6pm for Wine & Popcorn. Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance by calling the box office at 902-532-7704

 

 Run Time: 70 minutes
