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.

AMMONITE
Nov 20 @ 7:30 pm
Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan star in this raw love story between a solitary paleontologist and a wealthy, grieving wife in 19th-century Dorset.

Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan have both shown exceptional range, depth, and intensity on screen, but Ammonite reveals new colours. In this story of a visionary scientist and the young woman who changes her life, these two stars deliver performances of raw electricity.

Mary Anning (Winslet) devotes her days on Southwest England’s Dorset coast to finding and cataloguing fossils of ammonites, extinct and beautiful sea creatures. In the early 19th century this is no work for a woman, and no scientific society will have her. So Mary toils alone, even as male scientists visit to study and take credit for her work. When one visitor brings along his grieving wife, Charlotte (Ronan), then abandons her there to return to London, the two women have no one to turn to but each other.

Francis Lee’s follow-up to his award-winning God’s Own Country shows the same talent for powerful love stories in harsh environments. The rocky, windswept seaside of Lyme Regis is palpable here. Lee directs with a similar brisk urgency, cutting to the core of Mary’s anger and Charlotte’s pain, charting the gathering emotional storm that throws them together. As in God’s Own Country, Lee films physical passion without a shred of prudishness. He, Winslet, and Ronan forego period gloss for a portrait of desire that feels so much more true. And in showing the full gamut of Mary’s astringent brilliance and unvarnished lust, Winslet delivers one of the very best performances of her career.  –  CAMERON BAILEY

A CHRISTMAS CAROL
Dec 18 @ 7:00 pm

A CHRISTMAS CAROL

A joint “stage to screen” production of the Annapolis District Drama Group and Young Company Productions. Directed by Simon Bonnington.

Tickets will go on sale in November.

 

Following the widely-acclaimed success this summer of their first ever Stage-to-Screen production, the Annapolis District Drama Group is joining forces with Young Company Productions to create a family-favourite Christimas-time spectacle that is certain to entertain: a screen-play version of “A Christmas Carol”, by Charles Dickens. – pandemic-willing, to be screened at King’s Theatre the weekend before Christmas!

With a cast numbering 55 this is probably the largest theatrical production ever in Annapolis Royal, and that in a time of constraint due to pandemic restrictions. However, this well-loved tale lends itself quite easily to performance in line with current Provincial guidelines. The screen-play is a newly-crafted adaptation by Simon Bonnington, straight from Dickens original text, with Covid very much in mind, and gives the opportunity for several small groups of actors to rehearse and perform the different scenes quite separately from each other.

Inspired by their recent experience of on-location filming, “A Christmas Carol” is being rehearsed and filmed in and around several of the historic buildings in our communities. The O’Dell House Museum & the Sinclair Inn Museum are being made available by the kind cooperation of the Annapolis Heritage Society; and likewise the Board of the Tupperville School Museum are enthusiastically welcoming, allowing the actors to immerse themselves in these genuine Victorian settings!

The Queen Anne Inn, the Carlisle House Inn, and the Historic Gardens, as well as other well-known buildings and establishments, are also playing host to the production.

Screenings are scheduled for December (Thursday 17th 7.00pm,) Friday 18th 7.00pm, Saturday 19th 7.00pm & Sunday 20th 2pm
