In this moving modern love story, Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci star as a couple revisiting England’s Lake District after a devastating diagnosis.

“Tucci and Firth have never been better than they are here” –Michael O’Sullivan, The Washington Post

In this modern love story, Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci star as a couple struggling with a diagnosis of early-onset dementia. Sam (Firth) and Tusker (Tucci) have been together 20 years, and are driving through England’s Lake District in their old camper van reconnecting with friends, family, and old haunts in the wake of Tusker’s life-changing illness. Sam has placed his life on hold in order to act as his partner’s full-time caregiver, and the men’s time together has become especially sacred. Their trip is a last opportunity to travel while Tusker is still able — but secrets are revealed, plans unravel, and their love is tested like never before.

Writer-director Harry Macqueen (Hinterland) directs Supernova with “consistent care … [and] here that care pays off to devastating effect” (Glenn Kenny, The New York Times).

CYRANO DE BERGERAC – National Theatre
Mar 7 @ 2:00 pm
CYRANO DE BERGERAC - National Theatre

James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.

Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all – if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano – or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?

Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.

A production from The Jamie Lloyd Company.

A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX
Mar 13 @ 7:00 pm

What if we are living in a simulation, and the world as we know it is not real? To tackle this mind-bending idea, acclaimed filmmaker Rodney Ascher (ROOM 237, THE NIGHTMARE) uses a noted speech from Philip K. Dick to dive down the rabbit hole of science, philosophy, and conspiracy theory. Leaving no stone unturned in exploring the unprovable, the film uses contemporary cultural touchstones like THE MATRIX, interviews with real people shrouded in digital avatars, and a wide array of voices, expert and amateur alike. If simulation theory is not science fiction but fact, and life is a video game being played by some unknowable entity, then who are we, really? A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX attempts to find out.

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.

TWO OF US
Mar 24 @ 7:00 pm

Pensioners Nina (Barbara Sukowa) and Madeleine (Martine Chevallier) have hidden their deep and passionate love for many decades. From the point of view of those surrounding them, including Madeleine’s meddling daughter (Léa Drucker), they are simply two neighbours sharing a hallway during their sunset years. In reality, this landing is a bridge between two worlds: one belonging to a widowed, doting grandmother, the other to a free-spirited, fiercely independent woman who longs to spend her life with the person she loves. Clandestinely, Nina and Madeleine share a tender life, moving freely between their apartments until, one day, an unexpected event closes the portal. In this new reality, their secret cannot remain hidden if they are to stay together — and their unconditional love is put to the test.

France-based Italian director Filippo Meneghetti, along with writer Malysone Bovorasmy (in collaboration with Florence Vignon and Marion Vernoux), uses the utmost care and benevolence in crafting his bold, lustrous directorial debut. Sukowa, Chevallier, and Drucker are endlessly compelling in their performances of characters who are both sincere and flawed. Two of Us is a film of longing and revelatory beauty.

MATTHEW BOURNE’S THE RED SHOES

MATTHEW BOURNE'S THE RED SHOES
THE DOUBLE OLIVIER AWARD-WINNING SMASH HIT RETURNS

Based on the film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger
and the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale
Music by

A sell-out for its world premiere in 2016, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the legendary film returns to London, having won two Olivier Awards and dazzled audiences across the UK and the USA.

The Red Shoes is a tale of obsession, possession and one girl’s dream to be the greatest dancer in the world. Victoria Page lives to dance but her ambitions become a battleground between the two men who inspire her passion.

Set to the achingly romantic music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann, The Red Shoes is orchestrated by Terry Davies and played live by the New Adventures Orchestra, with cinematic designs by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable and sound by Paul Groothuis.

With Adam Cooper, returning to New Adventures after more than 20 years, and Ashley Shaw, and Dominic North, Liam Mower, Michela Meazza, Glenn Graham and Cordelia Braithwaite set to revive their acclaimed original roles, this intoxicating drama will dazzle your senses and break your heart.

★★★★ “A gorgeous swirl of storytelling and style”- THE INDEPENDENT
★★★★ “A brilliant showcase for Bourne’s genius” – DAILY TELEGRAPH
★★★★ “Enchanting” – EVENING STANDARD
★★★★★ “Dazzling” – THE STAGE
★★★★★ “Bourne’s version is masterly” – SUNDAY EXPRESS
“Matthew Bourne’s theatrical flair makes The Red Shoes a Christmas cracker. Exhilarating entertainment” – THE SUNDAY TIMES
“A Bourne again tour de force. Every step is etched with his knowledge and passion. A wonderful evening of dance” – THE OBSERVER
“A feast for the eye. The Red Shoes will be dancing for years to come” – THE OBSERVER

SOUND OF METAL
Mar 31 @ 7:00 pm

Cinema is an art of sound and vision, but it’s the rare film that explores both with equal vitality. In a remarkably assured feature debut, Darius Marder finds a cinematic language that’s perfectly matched to this story of a man fighting to hold on to what defines him.

Riz Ahmed is a noise metal drummer. Shirtless and full of coiled intensity, he hammers out ferocious sets with his girlfriend and bandmate (Olivia Cooke). But with each show, a persistent ringing in his ears worsens until sound drops out altogether. For a deaf musician and his partner who’ve built their precarious existence doing what they know and love, what happens now? If he can’t recover his hearing, who will he become?

Marder, who co-wrote the screenplay for Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines (TIFF ’12), begins in similar territory here — characters living by their own rules. But this film moves in new directions, and according to its own beat. As this drummer explores medical interventions to restore his hearing and begins to learn about both the experience and the culture of deafness, he confronts the gap between external sounds and that tinny inner noise he can’t shake: the sound of metal. Marder and his team do groundbreaking work to convey that subjective sonic experience, while Ahmed is simply brilliant and fully immersed in his character. As the story takes one surprising turn and then another, it builds to a journey that looks — and sounds — like life.

“A picture which uses the medium of cinema to its fullest extent, both visually and aurally” –Wendy Ide, Screen Daily

JODIE FOSTER wins Best Supporting Actress at the 2021 Golden Globe Awards
 
Directed by Kevin Macdonald and based on the NY Times best-selling memoir “Guantánamo Diary” by Mohamedou Ould Slahi, this is inspiring the true story of Slahi’s fight for freedom after being detained and imprisoned without charge by the U.S. Government for years. Alone and afraid, Slahi (Tahar Rahim) finds allies in defense attorney Nancy Hollander (Jodie Foster) and her associate Teri Duncan (Shailene Woodley) who battle the U.S. government in a fight for justice that tests their commitment to the law and their client at every turn. Their controversial advocacy, along with evidence uncovered by a formidable military prosecutor, Lt. Colonel Stuart Couch (Benedict Cumberbatch), uncovers shocking truths and ultimately proves that the human spirit cannot be locked up.

MINARI
Apr 14 @ 7:00 pm

Sundance 2020 Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award

Steven Yeun and Han Ye-ri star in Lee Isaac Chung’s tender story of a family’s move to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own American dream.

Minari is another landmark entry in Asian American cinema, following the likes of Lulu Wang’s The Farewell. ” –Kristen Yoonsoo Kim, The Nation

A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family who move to a tiny farm in search of their own American dream.

Originally from South Korea, Jacob and Monica Yi (the superb Steven Yeun and Han Ye-ri) have just relocated from California to rural Arkansas along with their children, preteen Anne (Noel Kate Cho) and young David (Alan Kim), in pursuit of Jacob’s plan to work a tough plot of land and sell the produce to a buyer in Texas. Meanwhile, Jacob and a doubtful Monica — who’d rather be back in California — both work to support this venture with jobs at a local hatchery. The family’s home changes with the arrival of Monica’s sly, foul-mouthed, but very loving mother (Youn Yuh-jung). Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what truly makes a home.

The fourth feature from Lee Isaac Chung (Munyurangabo), Minari is a film the writer-director always wanted to make: a deeply personal, immersive journey into reconciling two worlds, with boundless affection for both. The film won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award in the US Dramatic Competition at Sundance 2020.

Three of Canada’s finest singer-songwriters together in one gorgeous show. You will laugh, cry and be transported by folk music at its best.

LYNN MILES is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters. With twelve albums to her credit, the winner of multiple Canadian Folk Music awards (2011 English Songwriter of the Year), and a 2003 Juno award for Roots and Traditional Solo Album of the Year, she has certainly found her strength over time. Through a career that has seen her move from Ottawa to Los Angeles and back again, with stops in Nashville and Austin TX., and a healthy touring schedule that regularly takes her through the US, Europe and across Canada, she has always created and performed music with unbridled feeling and vulnerability. Lynn’s song “Three Chords and the Truth” was recently chosen as the closing song on the popular BBC TV series “Case Histories”, and her new release “Downpour” has been receiving glowing reviews.

 

SUSAN CROWE is often described as a “writer’s writer”, and is one of Canada’s most respected singer songwriters in the folk genre. At once complex, challenging and accessible, Susan’s intelligent and moving songs have captivated audiences and reviewers from coast to coast, continent to continent. She possesses, in the words of Britain’s Folk Roots magazine, “that rare ability of crafting a lyric that bears scrutiny on its own terms.” That rare ability has earned her two Juno nominations, and nominations from both the West Coast and East Coast Music Awards. No stranger to King’s Theatre, we are THRILLED to have Susan back with THE MAVENS.

 

SHARI ULRICH: For over four decades, accomplished singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Shari Ulrich has been winning hearts across North America with her voice, songs and on-stage charisma. A two-time JUNO-winner among other awards, she has recorded 25 albums as a solo artist and with the legendary Pied Pumkin, The Hometown Band, UHF, BTU and The High Bar Gang.

anniversary show is one ‐ not to be missed!
