Urbanized (2011) – A Special Presentation by the Nova Scotia Architects Association
Admission by freewill offering.
Urbanized is a feature-length documentary about the design of cities, which looks at the issues and strategies behind urban design and features some of the world’s foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders, and thinkers. Over half the world’s population now lives in an urban area, and 75% will call a city home by 2050. But while some cities are experiencing explosive growth, others are shrinking. The challenges of balancing housing, mobility, public space, civic engagement, economic development, and environmental policy are fast becoming universal concerns. Yet much of the dialogue on these issues is disconnected from the public domain.Who is allowed to shape our cities, and how do they do it?

It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights, it’s time to meet the Muppets!
It’s hard to believe that sixty years ago this fall, Jim and Jane Henson founded The Muppets, Inc., an enterprise that would eventually change the worlds of puppetry, special effects and media technology channeled through a band of irresistible characters with timeless messages.
To celebrate, King’s Film Society is presenting a re-mastered version of the classic The Muppet Movie , the first full-length film about how Kermit the Frog and friends got their start. Released in 1979, the film features Paul William’s indelible songs and score –The Rainbow Connection, Movin’ Right Along and many more – which won Best Children’s Album at the Grammys in 1980.
As for the plot . . .
While living the quiet life in a swamp, Kermit the Frog is approached by a Hollywood agent and asked to audition for the chance of a lifetime. So Kermit, hoping for his big break, makes the journey to Hollywood. Along the way, he comes across several quirky new friends including the comedic Fozzie Bear, the beautiful and feisty Miss Piggy and the Great Gonzo. But Kermit must also watch out for the ruthless Doc Hopper, who plans to use him as his spokesman for his Frog Legs food chain.

Award winning film maker Michelle Derosier’s films address subjects such as treaties, racism, violence against women, and the way forward.

Here are the titles:

The project was a collaboration between the City of Thunder Bay and Thunderstone Pictures to bring discussions on diversity and relationship-building into sharper focus. The film aims to encourage all community members, no matter where they come from, to fully understand historical Aboriginal and community issues in their current context so that we can have discussions that are both informed as well as welcoming and respectful.

We know there are no more chances. It is not going away and today is the time to get it right in dealing with the climate crisis. Our world will live with it for the rest of our history, just as we have lived with the twentieth century legacy of our nuclear war. Our shared duty now, as one people, is to protect and repair our Earth, even as we prepare ourselves for its future unknown.
The film Climate Change and the Human Prospect documents the vision created at the Climate Change and the Human Prospect: A Thinkers Retreat held at the Thinkers Lodge in Pugwash, Nova Scotia.
In the compelling setting of the Thinkers Lodge where scientists and scholars from all over the world have stayed and tackled the world’s most pressing issues through the power of dialogue, Climate Change and the Human Prospect captures the thoughts, emotions and ideas of these Thinkers – scientists, economists, municipal councillors, planners, artists, community activists, First Nations and Eastern wisdom representatives and others – as they articulate global warming’s cascading impact on small, rural and coastal communities and focus on actionable, locally-oriented and forward-motion climate change plans.

About the Nutcracker
Clara is given an enchanted Nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve. As midnight strikes, she creeps downstairs to find a magical adventure awaiting her and her Nutcracker.
The magician Drosselmeyer transforms the drawing room for a battle between mice and toy soldiers. During the battle, Clara saves the Nutcracker’s life – so breaking a magical spell that turned him from a boy to a toy – and the Mouse King is defeated. In celebration, Drosselmeyer sweeps Clara and the Nutcracker off to the Kingdom of Sweets, where they meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and take part in a wonderful display of dances. The next morning, Clara’s adventures seem to have been more than just a dream.
It’s the Second Annual Benefit Concert for the Annapolis Food Bank with Paul O’Brien and members of his musical his family. There will also be some other special musical guests.
Last year’s event was a gorgeous concert of contemporary celtic-folk-pop with lush family harmonies. But more than that, it raised several thousands of dollars (and many boxes of food) for the Food Bank. It’s a night that will put you in the spirit of the season.
Admission by freewill donation to the Foodbank of cash or non-perishable food.
Mark the date on your calendar and stay tuned for details.
- Cheese and Charcuterie Board: House-made meats, pickles, crackers, and croustini with some great local cheeses.
- House-made Haggis: Mashed potatoes, turnip (Neeps & Tatties), carrots with a whisky onion gravy.
- Bread Pudding with toffee sauce.
- Tamdhu 10 YO – This is a Speyside Malt that possesses more colour than you would expect from a 10 year old single malt. (The age statement reflects the youngest whiskey in the bottle, so there may be some older whisky in the blend). The malt was aged 10 years exclusively in Sherry casks, so expect some significant fruit and woodiness. The nose is complex and the palate is wonderfully sweet and smooth.
- Craigellachie 13 YO – Another Speyside Malt, Craigellachie is considered a traditionally made Single Malt using traditional equipment, producing a whisky that is a bit of a departure from a typical Speyside Malt. Craigellachie is viscous and complex with explosive fruit and a hint of smoke. Very few single malt expressions have been released by this distillery, so get ready for a real treat.
The event will take place at the NEW EVENT SPACE at Fort View Golf Course. Tickets are available through King’s Theatre.
TICKETS are $60 each (or $30 without the scotch-tasting)
This is a fundraiser for King’s Theatre.
