THE CHILDREN ACT
Oct 2 @ 7:30 pm

Adapted by Booker Prize–winning author Ian McEwan from his own novel, this riveting drama stars two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson (The Legend of Barney Thomson; Alone in Berlin) as a British High Court judge tasked with making a decision that will speak to our most fraught questions regarding religious tolerance — and could mean life or death for an innocent young man. Judge Fiona Maye (Thompson) is married to her work, which has become a problem for her husband, Jack (Stanley Tucci, Spotlight), who announces that he wants to have an affair. Treating the matter more as an annoyance than a life-altering crisis, Fiona kicks Jack out and focuses on her current case. The question: should a couple who are Jehovah’s Witnesses be permitted to deny a life-saving blood transfusion to their leukemia-stricken 17-year-old son (Fionn Whitehead, Dunkirk)? Fiona finds herself taking unusual measures to determine her verdict — measures that will have far-reaching consequences.

Directed by Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal), The Children Act brims with intelligence, sophistication, and intrigue. The elevated tension places unusual focus on its protagonist’s every word and gesture — a challenge Thompson meets with virtuosity. Her Fiona is a cauldron of conflicted feelings bubbling beneath a veneer of composure. As she finds herself sliding deeper into a mire of professional compromise and personal desperation, we come to empathize with her singular burden… and wait for the outcome with keen anticipation.

URBANIZED – Special NS Architects Presentation
Oct 4 @ 7:30 pm

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?

MOVIE NIGHT AT THE O: THE MUPPET MOVIE
Oct 5 @ 7:00 pm

Location: Oqwa’titek Amphitheatre

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.

Director: James Frawley

Starring: Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Charles Durning, Milton Berle, Mel Brooks, James Coburn, Dom Deluise, Bob Hope, Madeline Kahn, Carol Kane, Cloris Leachman, Steve Martin, Richard Pryor, Orson Wells, Telly Savales

 

 

***FREE ADMISSION****

Dress for a fall evening, bring your favourite blanket and something comfy to sit on.

Sing alongs welcome!

King’s Film Society would like to thank our generous partners in helping us cover the costs for this special outdoor presentation: Annapolis Board of Trade, Annapolis Home Hardware Building Centre, Town of Annapolis Royal, King’s Theatre and Lois and Ross Baker.

NOTHING LIKE A DAME
Oct 16 @ 7:30 pm

From time to time four old friends, all extraordinary actresses, meet up in the English countryside to gossip, to remember and to laugh. For once they let the cameras in…

NOTHING LIKE A DAME is a unique celebration of the lives and careers of four of our most iconic actresses; Dame Eileen Atkins, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Joan Plowright and Dame Maggie Smith. All four have gone from being fledgling actresses in the 1950s to acting royalty. They’ve watched each other’s careers grow and bloom and have celebrated life’s ups and downs together. NOTHING LIKE A DAME invites you to spend time with these acting legends as they talk about their lives and their professional experiences across Theatre, Television and Film. Directed by Roger Michell (My Cousin Rachel, Notting Hill), the film also includes a range of astonishing archive material. Candid, funny, caustic, irreverent, poignant and utterly engrossing, this unmissable release is proof that there is truly nothing like a Dame…

  • UK, 2018
  • 84 minutes
  • Director: Robert Michell
  • With: Eileen Atkins, Judi Dench, Joan Plowright and Maggie Smith

 

“The laughter and pure hysteria are infectious in this wildly enjoyable film. I can’t for the life of me think of any other recent documentary in which I have laughed pretty much all the way through.” 

– The Guardian
