Rocky’s Review
Swiss Cows

The final day of our DANCE ON CAMERA festival (5/14) couldn't be more diverse, and it features my favorite film out of the 22 movies that we're presenting. No program description can do justice to REINES D'UN JOUR. You'll have to trust me on this one. Suffice it to say, these dancers and cows might change the way you greet people. One of my other favorite movies is the 9 minute short VANISHING POINTS. It was shot on the streets of Montreal and features two hip-hop dancers in brief, fleeting synchronicity. Both DANCING BEETHOVEN and ALIVE & KICKING are an exhilarating blend of music and dance, and a perfect way to end the festival. Enjoy.

     Our Starlight Room screening Wednesday night of A LION IN WINTER sold in record time, so we've added a second showing on Saturday, April 29th at 12:45.

     I have yet to see COLOSSAL, the new Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis film, but I can't wait. Deconstructing the monster movie genre in wildly imaginative ways, writer-director Nacho Vigalondo unleashes a fantastic tale that also triumphs as a wholly original and subversive romantic comedy. "A brilliantly bizarro satire of gender politics." -Rolling Stone

     TOMORROW, the wonderful documentary about taking steps toward a sustainable future, had two nearly-sold out show this past weekend, so the movie is coming back for a full week beginning this Friday. It shares the Rosebud screen with GIFTED, here for one more week. THE LOST CITY OF Z moves up to the Starlight Room on Friday, and TOMMY'S HONOUR shoots its final round of golf this Thursday.

     The National Theatre of London returns this weekend with two presentations of TWELFTH NIGHT, an extravagant new production that gleefully refocuses Shakespeare's comedy.

     Our early Wednesday matinees begin this week, with showings of THE LOST CITY OF Z (12:45) and TOMMY'S HONOUR (1:15). Our second season of the popular COMMUNITY ARTS FILM SERIES doesn't begin until October, but the new line-up is on our website, and tickets and passes are now available. (Passes are available only at the box office).
