Tim Burton’s CORPSE BRIDE
Oct 30 @ 7:30 pm

Come in costume for a Spooky Photo Shoot and Treats!!!

 
Returning to the painstaking stop-motion animation he employed with amazing success in The Nightmare Before Christmas, Tim Burton presents a hair-raising legend based on a 19th-century Russian folktale, in which a young man mistakenly weds a corpse while on a two-day trek to the village of his real bride-to-be. It is up to the groom’s flesh-and-blood fiancée, who has been pining for the arrival of her intended, to face her wraith-like rival and make peace with her by promising to live her dreams for her and by vowing to remember her always. Only then are the living bride and groom free to proceed with their own wedding ceremony in the warmhearted fable Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride.

Welcome to Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up and no humans are allowed. One special weekend, Dracula (Adam Sandler) has invited all his best friends – Frankenstein and his wife, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Werewolf family, and more – to celebrate his beloved daughter Mavis’s (Selena Gomez) 118th birthday.

FREE KID’S MOVIE  — All Welcome!
Santa will be present.
Late on Christmas Eve, after the town has gone to sleep, a boy boards the mysterious train that waits for him–The Polar Express. When the boy arrives at the North Pole, Santa Claus offers him any gift he desires. The boy asks only for a bell from the harness of Santa’s reindeer. But on the way home, the bell is lost. Christmas morning, the boy finds the bell under the Christmas tree, and when he shakes it, the bell makes the most beautiful sound he’s ever heard. His mother admires the bell, but she laments that it is broken … for, you see, only a true believer can hear the sound of the bell.

THE NUTCRACKER - National Ballet of Canada
 
 
The National Ballet of Canada’s The Nutcracker is a magical holiday tradition. Set in the rustic world of rural 19th-century Russia, The Nutcracker blends an affectionately detailed natural setting with an extravagant dreamscape of wonders, from the glittering, ice-coated world of the Snow Queen to the awe-inspiring splendour of the golden palace of the Sugar Plum Fairy. The December 13 matinee performance runs 115 minutes, with a 20 minute intermission. The Nutcracker’s choreography and libretto are by James Kudelka, music is by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikosky, set and costume design are by Santo Loquasto and lighting design is by Jennifer Tipton.
 
 
“I am extremely proud to be able to share our production of The Nutcracker with Canadians nationwide. And this year, we will expand our reach even more, bringing this great holiday tradition to a greater number of communities across the country,” says Karen Kain, Artistic Director. “We are excited to once again present The Nutcracker to our theatre audiences across the country,” says Pat Marshall, Vice President, Communications and Investor Relations, Cineplex Entertainment. “The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition that should be experienced by as many people as possible and we have expanded the number of theatres to ensure everyone can enjoy it.”

DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKING WORKSHOP with Nance Ackerman: Day One
Mar 15 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKING WORKSHOP FOR YOUTH

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR BOTH DAYS

  • DAY ONE, Monday March 15, 11am-4pm
  • DAY TWO, Tuesday March 16, 11am-4pm

Make a short documentary film and see it on the big screen! 

Making documentary films isn’t easy — whether you’re in a war zone or in your back yard – but it’s one of the most rewarding jobs on the planet!  A powerful documentary film or web video can bring life to a story, social issue, or celebration like no other. Films can move minds, alter policy, change lives and expose injustices – but it has to be done with purpose, mindfulness and compassion in order to be effective.

In this two-day workshop (March 15 & 16) we will learn how to explore issues, story and themes through storyboarding, cinematography, editing, soundscape and music. Breaking out into roles – director, cinematographer, soundperson, editor, etc. — we’ll  work together to create  3-5 minute short documentaries, that address issues that matter to you! And we’ll have an awesome time doing it! :).  Films made in this workshop will be screening at King’s Theatre on Friday March 19 at 7pm.

  • Ages: 12-18
  • Cost for 2 days: $40 (plus HST & ticketing fees)
  • King’s Theatre aims to ensure no one is excluded due to cost. Please get in touch regarding bursaries.
  • REQUIRED to bring: Your own camera phone & a brown bag lunch.
  • Workshops will take place at the theatre and on site in the community, so dress for the weather.
  • Deadline to sign up: March 12.

About the instructor:
Celebrated documentary photographer and filmmaker, Nance Ackerman has been making images and film around the world for over 30 years. Her documentary photography work has been featured in Time, Newsweek, Canadian Geographic, New York Times, and Canada’s national newspaper, the Globe and Mail and she was the assistant photo editor at the Montreal Gazette for several years before going freelance. Her work has been described as ‘artivism’ – creating art to create change. Striving to build bridges of understanding, common ground and a global awareness of human behaviour on this planet, her work quickly grew too large for the daily news cycle. After being dragged across the barricade while covering/protesting at Oka, she started on a journey of discovery of her Mohawk heritage. The result, her photographs of First Nations women, have been exhibited at the Aperture Foundation in New York and the Smithsonian Institution, in Washington, DC. Following that, Ackerman’s book, Womankind: Faces of Change Around the World – a collection of portraits and essays of women activists around the world – was released in 2003.

In 2005 Ackerman turned her eye to directing social documentary films. Her first film, the National Film Board feature documentary Cottonland, brought in numerous awards and three Gemini Nominations, and shone a light on the connection between the world of opioid drug addiction and post industrial malaise. Since then she has made several more award-winning documentaries and an animated short. Her collaborative feature documentary film, Conviction, went inside Canada’s women’s prisons to imagine alternatives to incarceration through art and music and premiered at Hot Docs International Film Festival. Conviction won her, and her co-directors, a National Writer’s Guild Award for Best Documentary script. Her latest film Behind the Bhangra Boys takes an intimate look at joyous activism through five Sikh Bhangra dancers and new Canadians. Ackerman is now developing several projects from Afghanistan to Mexico that explore the power of the human spirit behind many seemingly overwhelming global issues. She has a masters degree in New Media and also taught for seven years at the University of Kings College, in Halifax. She now offers International photography workshops around the world. Ackerman also composes soundtracks with her partner, Jamie Alcorn, at their studio, Heartstring Productions in Tupperville in the Annapolis valley.
