THE GRIZZLIES
Jun 28 @ 7:30 pm

Inuit youth in a small community gain a powerful sense of pride and purpose through the sport of lacrosse, in this true-story account of tenacity, renewal, and inspiring resilience.

Based on a true story, The Grizzlies is about the determination and resilience of a group of Inuit youth in a small Arctic community. In 1998, first-time teacher Russ Sheppard (Ben Schnetzer) moves north for a job at a local school in Kugluktuk, a town struggling with one of the highest suicide rates in North America. With no previous experience or knowledge of life in the north, Russ is shocked and overwhelmed by the numerous social issues facing the youth, all as a result of the massive legacy of colonization on their families and communities. Russ introduces a lacrosse program in the school. Although the program is at first met with skepticism and resistance, Russ’s commitment begins to win the trust of the students and together they form the Grizzlies lacrosse team. Through the sport, the youth find a vital outlet for their emotions and the team creates a sense of pride and purpose in themselves and their community.

Originally from Kugluktuk, one of the film’s producers, Stacey Aglok MacDonald, has first-hand experience of the impact of this program on her community and has been committed to bringing this story to the screen in close creative collaboration with producer Alethea Arnaquq-Baril and director Miranda de Pencier. With absolutely stunning breakout performances by young Nunavut-based actors Paul Nutarariaq and Emerald MacDonald, The Grizzlies is a testament to the spirit, tenacity, and leadership of Inuit youth, persisting in spite of immense pressure and hardship.

“Inspirational sports stories are nothing new, but a fresh milieu and a vivid cast of characters can revitalize any genre, and The Grizzlies — an excellent Canadian film directed by Miranda de Pencier — stands out as a stirring and compelling variation on a popular theme.”

– The Hollywood Reporter

AMAZING GRACE
Jul 9 @ 7:30 pm

AMAZING GRACE is a filmed record of the two nights, in January 1972, during which Aretha Franklin recorded the gospel performances that became the celebrated live double album “Amazing Grace.” It remains not only the best-selling gospel record of all time, but the best-selling album of Franklin’s 50-year career. She was then at the height of her stardom, with 20 albums and 11 number-one singles (“Respect,” “Chain of Fools,” “Think,” etc.) under her belt, and she wanted to do a record that honoured the formative gospel roots of her youth.

Warner Bros. hired director Sydney Pollack to film the sessions, and we see Pollack wandering around the church, directing the action and at one point holding the camera. But for technical reasons, the project wound up getting shelved. Now lovingly restored and assembled, AMAZING GRACE can stand as an essential filmed record of what is undoubtedly one of the greatest gospel performances. Franklin was not just a great singer, as one reviewer noted, she was a human chariot.

With: Aretha Franklin, the Reverend James Cleveland, C.F. Franklin, the Southern California Community Choir plus cameos of Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts

AMAZING GRACE  is two days of Baptist church condensed to 90 minutes and injected directly into your soul. – rogerebert.com

TOMÁŠ KUBÍNEK – MIRACLE MAN
Jul 28 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Theatre is thrilled to present the internationally acclaimed vaudevillian performer TOMÁŠ KUBÍNEK. Magician, mime, illusionist, theatrical stuntman, Tomáš Kubínek makes his audiences laugh out of sheer wonder and delight.  He follows a noble tradition of physical comedy.

 

A collision of theatre and music-hall, his exuberant one-man show is equal parts comic brilliance, virtuosic vaudeville and irresistible charm. He’s known as a COMIC GENIUS, VIRTUOSO VAUDEVILLIAN, and all-round charmer who gives audiences an utterly joyous experience they’ll remember for a lifetime.

After a sold-out run on Broadway, The New York Times lauded his work as “Absolutely expert!

His latest creation, TOMÁŠ KUBÍNEK – MIRACLE MAN, is a rip-roaring revival of strong-man stunts, couples-counseling, snake-healings, and mass-hypnosis that leaves audiences dazed, beaming and in love with life once again.

*The performance, intended for an adult audience, is an utterly original mix of comedy, circus, and vaudeville, this is unlike anything you have ever seen at King’s Theatre. TOMÁŠ KUBÍNEK is a phenomenon not to be missed.*

“Masterfully played comedy…That secret mixture of DARING, TALENT, AND UTTER FOOLISHNESS…” – Santa Fe Reporter

“HILARIOUS and enormously talented.” -TimeOut, London

 “The audience sits transfixed, gleefully awaiting each new moment of MAD BRILLIANCE.”
— Badische Zeitung, Germany

 

Tomáš Kubínek was born in Prague and at the age of 3 was smuggled out of the country by his parents to escape the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia. After two months in a refugee camp in Austria, the Kubínek family was granted asylum in Canada and it was there, in St. Catharines, Ontario, that Tomáš, age 5, witnessed his first circus. He became passionately interested in clowns, circus, theater and magic and his perplexed yet well-adjusted parents took him to see every show that passed through town. At age 9 he presented his first performance before a circle of elderly magicians. By age 13 he had an agent. He performed in coffee-houses between folk-music acts and while still in his teens, he made his circus debut with a Brazilian clown duo as the rear half of a two-person horse. His tireless experiments in the art of live performance led to the creation of his award-winning solo stage shows which play to capacity crowds at theaters, international arts festivals, and in television broadcasts throughout the world.

LATE NIGHT
Aug 6 @ 7:30 pm

YOURE THE BOSS: AUDIENCE CHOICE

LATE NIGHT

Directed by Nisha Ganatra
Starring EmmaThompson, Mindy Kaling, Amy Ryan, John Lithgow

 

After almost 30 years, a groundbreaking talk-show host suspects she may soon be losing her coveted seat on late-night television unless she manages a game-changing transformation. Legendary talk-show host Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is a pioneer in her field. The only woman ever to have a long-running program on late night, she keeps her writers’ room on a short leash – and all male. But when her ratings plummet and she is accused of being a “woman who hates women,” Katherine puts gender equality on her to-do list and impulsively hires Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling), a chemical plant efficiency expert from suburban Pennsylvania, as the first and only female on her writing staff. 

With rumors swirling that Katherine is being replaced by a younger, hipper male host, she demands that the writers make her funny and relevant again. A lifelong fan, Molly is determined to prove she’s not just a diversity hire, but the one person who can turn her idol’s career around. Going against everything Katherine has staked her reputation on, she urges her to make the show more contemporary, authentic and personal, a move that could make Molly’s career or send her back to the chemical plant for good.

“Watching Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling mix it up in Late Night will make you think you’ve died and gone to hilarity heaven.”

– Rolling Stone
