SCREENINGS

 

Movie Monday

 

6:30 pm Monday 30 Jul 2012

Foreverland, 2011, 93 min

 

 

Foreverland tells the story of Will Rankin, a young man stricken with Cystic Fibrosis, a terminal illness, who is tasked with delivering his friend’s ashes to a legendary healing shrine in Mexico. Joined by the sister of his fallen friend, Will embarks on an epic journey down the Pacific Coast Highway to the desert heart of Baja, encountering a memorable cast of characters along the way. In the spirit of Into the Wild and Little Miss Sunshine, it’s about dreams and the courage to pursue them. Hope, laughter, and life’s small miracles.

 

Max McGuire, the director, is a Vancouver based and he lives with cystic fibrosis, which gives this film extra credibility and heft. We’ll try to have him by for a Q&A view the officialFacebook page or read review

6:30 pm Monday 6 Aug 2012, 1961, 124 min

The Misfits

 

 

The Misfits brought together three legendary performers: Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, and Marilyn Monroe, in a story of lonely, modern-day cowboys and the woman who loves them. Arthur Miller’s screenplay, Russell Metty’s somber black-and-white images, and final performances by Monroe and Gable give this film a profoundly elegiac tone.

 

Here’s a chance to celebrate the real Marilyn soon after our recent screening of My Week With Marilyn starring Michelle Williams. Marilyn Monroe died 50 years ago, Aug 5, 1962. Gable died soon after the film wrapped. view a trailer and read about making the film.
