CONVICTION – A film by Nance Ackerman, Ariella Pahlke & Teresa MacInnes
Nov 2 @ 7:30 pm

* SPECIAL ADMISSION BY DONATION EVENT*

Conviction is a new documentary by the celebrated local filmmaker Nance Ackerman, Ariella Pahlke and Teresa MacInnes. Nance will be present to say a few words and answer questions. We will open with the 3-minute animated short Little Thunder, made by Nance Ackerman and Alan Syliboy.

Conviction envisions alternatives to prison through the eyes of women behind bars and those fighting on the front lines of the decarceration movement.

Conviction flips the narrative away from pop culture’s voyeuristic lens and hands it to the women who are being victimized, marginalized and criminalized in our society. Not another ‘broken prison’ film, Conviction is a ‘broken society’ film – an ambitious and inspired re-build of our community, from the inside out. With more women in prisons than ever before, the film implicates viewers to question the status quo, and to consider a different kind of society that better supports the most vulnerable among us.

Nance  Ackerman, Writer, Director/ Ariella Pahlke, Writer, Director / Teresa MacInnes Writer, Director, Producer (Sea to Sea Productions)/ Annette Clarke, Producer (NFB)

2019 | 78 min

THE GREAT BUSTER
Nov 5 @ 7:30 pm

THE GREAT BUSTER celebrates the life and career of one of the most influential and celebrated filmmakers and comedians, Buster Keaton, whose singular style and fertile output during the silent era created his legacy as a true cinematic visionary. Filled with stunningly restored archival Keaton films, Directed by Peter Bogdanovich.
 
Keaton’s beginnings on the vaudeville circuit are chronicled, as is the development of his trademark physical comedy and deadpan expression that earned him the lifelong moniker of “The Great Stone Face”, all of which led to his career-high years as the director, writer, producer and star of his own short films and features. Interspersed throughout are interviews with nearly two-dozen collaborators, filmmakers,
performers andfriends, including Mel Brooks, Quentin Tarantino, Werner Herzog, Dick van Dyke and Johnny Knoxville, who discuss Keaton’s influence on modern comedy and cinema itself. The loss of artistic independence and career decline that marked his later years are also covered by Bogdanovich, before he casts a close eye on Keaton’s extraordinary output from 1923 to 1929, which yielded 10 remarkable feature films (including 1926’s The General and 1928’s Steamboat Bill, Jr.) that immortalized him as one of the greatest actor-filmmakers in the history of cinema.

1h 42min. 


“The Great Buster” is a solid primer on what made Keaton not just one of the most important – and funniest – comedians in the history of the movies but also one of its most visionary directors.”

Featuring the voices of Eddie Izzard, Sarah Paulson, and Chloe Bennet, this spectacular animated adventure follows a clever teen girl and a Yeti as they rove the Himalayas in the hopes of reuniting the charismatic creature with his family.

This spectacular family-friendly feature from Hollywood’s DreamWorks Animation and China’s Pearl Studio takes us on a wild adventure from bustling modern city to gorgeous countryside to mystical mountaintops, all in an effort to help a charismatic creature evade his captors and find his way home.

Having fled the secret laboratory where he’s been detained, a young Yeti frantically scurries through the streets of Shanghai before hiding on an apartment rooftop, where he takes solace in a billboard advertisement for travel to Everest. It’s also where he meets Yi (Chloe Bennet), a resourceful girl struggling through adolescence while nursing a profound personal loss. Yi and the Yeti discover a shared fondness for Yi’s grandma’s dumplings — which the Yeti consumes in crazy quantities — and a love of music. An outspoken advocate for Asian actors and film roles in Hollywood, Bennet voices Yi with an impressive mix of American confidence and Chinese family values.

Yi quickly surmises that her new companion is being hunted by a squad of ruthless militiamen, led by wealthy collector Burnish and the zoologist Dr. Zara. Recruiting two cousins as accomplices, Yi determines to help the Yeti get away. With their pursuers hot on their tails, the quartet hop on a barge bound for the Himalayas, where the Yeti can be reunited with his family.

Written by Jill Culton (Monsters, Inc.) and co-directed by Culton and Todd Wilderman, Abominable recalls such beloved family adventure classics as E.T. Featuring the voices of Eddie Izzard and Golden Globe winner Sarah Paulson, the film brims with humour, derring-do, and surprising twists, leading us on a journey of friendship, healing, and love.

RAWLINS CROSS
Nov 9 @ 7:30 pm

SOLD OUT!!!

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Rawlins Cross is approaching legendary status as one of Canada’s most accomplished and beloved Celtic music groups. With the upcoming release of its 10th studio recording, “Flying Colours”, Rawlins Cross continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of a dedicated global fan-base developed over an acclaimed career.

The band was formed in St. John’s, Newfoundland in the late 1980s by songwriting brothers Dave Panting (guitar and mandolin), Geoff Panting (keyboards and accordion) and Ian McKinnon (highland pipes, tin whistle and bodhran). With the solid rhythm section of Halifax bassist and Chapman Stick player Brian Bourne and Ontario-based drummer Howie Southwood, Rawlins Cross enlisted PEI singer Joey Kitson to complete its signature sound.

Since the beginning, Rawlins Cross has been at the vanguard of the fusion of Celtic traditional music with the rhythms of Rock, Pop and Worldbeat music. Equally at ease with a soulful Highland Air (MacPherson’s Lament) or a raucous party song (Colleen, Wild Rose, Reel ‘n’ Roll), Rawlins Cross never fails to electrify its faithful fans. Over the years, Rawlins Cross has always been a “fan favourite” on the North American and European music festival circuit and regularly plays to sold-out concert halls across Canada.

30 years and 9 albums later, Rawlins Cross continues to maintain a steady course with their 10th studio recording “Flying Colours” (November 2019). “Flying Colours” will prove to be another significant mile marker in the band’s storied career – an eclectic mix of the old world and the new.

NOT JUST DESSERTS + Babette’s Feast
Nov 16 @ 7:00 pm

Celebrate the legacy of Marilyn Lawson with a feast of desserts prepared by our wonderful Theatre volunteers, then enjoy a redux of one of the greatest foodie films of all time, Babette’s Feast.

Join us at 7:00pm for desserts. Velma`s wine bar will be open.

Stay for the Oscar-winning film, Babette’s Feast.

ADMISSION BY DONATION.

Photo of Marilyn Lawson by Andi Rierden

Marilyn Lawson (1942-2018) was a great friend of the Theatre who died a year ago. Many will remember when she and Hannelore Fisher concocted the `Just Desserts` fundraiser that saved the day when the Theatre was in dire straights. The event showcased Marilyn`s extraordinary talents as a world-class chocolatier and pastry chef.

 

 

 

The Film: The Danish/French Babette’s Feast is based on a story by Isak Dinesen, also the source of the very different Out of Africa (1985). Stephane Audran plays Babette, a 19th century Parisian political refugee who seeks shelter in a rough Danish coastal town. Philippa (Bodil Kjer) and Martina (Birgitte Federspiel), the elderly daughters of the town’s long-dead minister, take Babette in. As revealed in flashback, Philippa and Martina were once beautiful young women (played by Hanne Stensgaard and Vibeke Hastrup), who’d forsaken their chances at romance and fame, taking hollow refuge in religion. Babette holds a secret that may very well allow the older ladies to have a second chance at life. This is one of the great movies about food, but there are way too many surprises in Babette’s Feast to allow us to reveal anything else at this point (except that Ingmar Bergman “regulars” Bibi Andersson and Jarl Kulle have significant cameo roles).. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Puccini’s TURANDOT
Nov 17 @ 2:00 pm

Franco Zeffirelli’s dazzling production of

Puccini’s final masterpiece

Two of opera’s most thrilling dramatic sopranos, Christine Goerke and Nina Stemme, reprise their fierce portrayals of the title princess. Yannick Nézet-Séguin takes the podium to conduct Franco Zeffirelli’s dazzling production of Puccini’s final masterpiece, which also features tenors Roberto Aronica and Marco Berti as Calàf, sopranos Eleonora Buratto and Hibla Gerzmava as Liù, and bass-baritone James Morris as Timur.

 

Conductor: Yannick Nézet-Séguin

Sung In Italian

Met Titles In English

Estimated Run Time: 3 hrs 2 mins

 

 

World premiere: Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 1926. Puccini’s final opera is an epic fairy tale set in a China of legend, loosely based on a play by 18th-century Italian dramatist Carlo Gozzi. Featuring a most unusual score with an astounding and innovative use of chorus and orchestra, it is still recognizably Puccini, bursting with instantly appealing melody. The unenviable task of completing the opera’s final scene upon Puccini’s sudden death was left to the composer Franco Alfano. Conductor Arturo Toscanini oversaw Alfano’s contribution and led the world premiere.

PARASITE
Nov 19 @ 7:30 pm
Winner of the Palme d’Or
From the director whose films rank amongst the highest grossingin South Korea comes a black family comedy (of sorts) about a wealthy Korean family in a modern-day Downton Abbey upstairs-downstairs situation.

Bong Joon-ho’s 2019 Palme d’Or winner tells the story of two families: the Kims and the Parks. The Kims are an impoverished family living in squalor, but they are resourceful. When opportunity strikes, they seize it — and never let go.

After a family friend decides to move to the United States, he encourages Ki-woo (Choi Woo-
shik, Okja) to replace him as a tutor to the daughter of the wealthy Park family. Ki-woo is unqualified for the job,but forges the credentials he needs with the help of his sister Ki-jung(Park So-dam).

One by one, each member of the Kim family finds their way into servitude to the Parks — without the Parks discovering who they really are. “Rich people are naive,” remarks the patriarch of the Kim family. The Parks are the source of survival for the Kims now. There is only one family member left to onboard: Kim matriarch Chung-Sook (Chang Hyae-jin).

The film travels through genres seamlessly to tell a story about greed and social disparity that is tragic (or maybe comedic) on a Shakespearean scale. 
 
A luxuriously watchable and satirical suspense drama.”

—Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
