From DreamWorks Animation comes a surprising tale about growing up, finding the courage to face the unknown…and how nothing can ever train you to let go.

Welcome to the most astonishing chapter of one of the most beloved animated franchises in film history: How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. Now chief and ruler of Berk alongside Astrid, Hiccup has created a gloriously chaotic dragon utopia. When the sudden appearance of female Light Fury coincides with the darkest threat their village has ever faced, Hiccup and Toothless must leave the only home they’ve known and journey to a hidden world thought only to exist in myth. As their true destines are revealed, dragon and rider will fight together—to the very ends of the Earth—to protect everything they’ve grown to treasure. For How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, series director Dean DeBlois returns alongside the all-star cast. The film is produced by Brad Lewis (Ratatouille, ANTZ) and Bonnie Arnold (Toy Story, How to Train Your Dragon,How to Train Your Dragon 2).

COCO LOVE ALCORN SINGING WORKSHOP
May 20 @ 7:00 pm
Come sing with Coco Love Alcorn and her bassist Connor Walsh!
For 2 hours Coco will teach songs, lead improvisation exercises, and demonstrate how non-scary and fun singing together can be! We will make some joyful noise and soulful sounds as we playfully jump into the middle of the moment together.
 
Coco’s workshops create a space safe for challenging our comfort zones and enjoying a truly connected experience. Together we will explore harmony, groove, blend and our creative sides.

“Since releasing Wonderland (fall 2016) I have had the joy of visiting and singing with dozens of choirs across Canada and beyond. It all started in the fall of 2014 when I uploaded a video to YouTube singing a song I had just written called “The River”. Within months, choirs had started singing this song and I hadn’t even stepped into the studio yet!

 

I knew that I wanted to visit and sing with as many of these choirs as possible.And so I have been, and loving every minute of it: To show up in each new town and be immediately embraced by a community of people who sing together is an incredible thing. I have always loved to sing for people, but to sing with them is an even greater joy. I have found a new passion and my new calling. If I haven’t met you yet, I would love to!” – Coco

  • Adults: $30 (including HST)

MARIA BY CALLAS
May 21 @ 7:30 pm

  Maria by Callas captures one of the great talents of the 20th century,combining beautifully restored archival footage with her own words. The Greek-American soprano rose to fame after World War II and became a star attraction in all the major opera houses. The film features interviews Callas gave during her lifetime, including a candid conversation with David Frost, her infamous performance cancellation in Rome and her falling out with the Metropolitan Opera leader Rudolf Bing. She expresses her regrets and shares her feelings about her long love affair with Aristotle Onassis that lasted after his marriage to Jackie Kennedy. Callas’s music is paramount in the film. We’re treated to her signature arias from the operas Norma, La Traviata, Carmen, and Tosca. As Callas told Frost, “If someone really tries to listen to me, he will find all myself there.”

MISSING LINK
May 24 @ 7:00 pm

A Comedy of Epic Proportions

Another beautifully animated triumph for Laika, Missing Link is a visual treat with lots of humor, plenty of heart, and even a little food for thought.

Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, the trio encounters their fair share of peril as they travel to the far reaches of the world. Through it all, they learn that sometimes one can find a family in the places one least expects.

JAMES MULLINGER – Comedy
May 25 @ 7:30 pm

British comedian James Mullinger has taken Canada by storm. Sold out shows across the country, appearances on CBC’s The Debaters, movies, TV shows, festivals, awards, magazines, stand up specials – since moving to Atlantic Canada four years ago he’s done it all.

James tours extensively to packed houses across Canada and England. A big budget movie had been made about his early years in stand up (starring actors from Twilight, Downton Abbey and Notting Hill and comedians such as Jimmy Carr, Gilbert Gottfried, Mike Ward and Pete Zedlacher). It was described by NME as the “funniest film of the year,” “unmissable” by GQ Magazine and “essential viewing. A funny, realistic look at what it takes to become a stand up comedian,” by the Montreal Times. Watch the trailer here.

James is one of the Canada’s biggest cheerleaders. He loves it here and spends his time promoting it across the world and raising money for charities and non-profits. James has raised more than $100,000 for Canadian charities. He has also become one of Canada’s top comics, being nominated for both a Just For Laughs comedy award and a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Show.

ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch
Jun 4 @ 7:30 pm

 

Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

 

A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet, ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch is a four years in the making feature documentary film from the multiple-award winning team of Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier and Edward Burtynsky. Third in a trilogy that includes Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013), the film follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group who, after nearly 10 years of research, are arguing that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century, because of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth. The filmmakers have traversed the globe using high end production values and state of the art camera techniques to document evidence and experience of human planetary domination. At the intersection of art and science, ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch witnesses in an experiential and non-didactic sense a critical moment in geological history — bringing a provocative and unforgettable experience of our species’ breadth and impact.

 

“To say that there are no easy answers to planetary woes is to state the obvious. But the film seeks to reveal rather than lecture, in the hope that our eyes will convince our brains to act before it’s too late.”

—Peter Howell, Toronto Star
