Kicking off this year’s ACT Presents season is The Golden Ears Movie Series on Monday, September 25th. First up in our great line-up of six films is Lone Scherfig’s Their Finest, starring Gemma Arterton, Sam Calflin, and Bill Nighy. During the London Blitz of World War II, former secretary Catrin Cole becomes employed by the British Ministry of Information as a “slop” scriptwriter charged with bringing “a woman’s touch” to morale-boosting propaganda films. Along the way, Cole learns that there is just as much camaraderie, laughter, and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.
All GEMS films are at 7:30 pm in the Main Theatre.
Single tickets: $11 | Three-film package: $27 | Six-film package: $52.
Call 604.476.2787 or visit Golden Ears Movie Series (GEMS) for more details.
Saturday, September 30th from 1 – 4 pm we will be celebrating Canada’s 150th year and our deep connections and long history of First Nations culture. This free family-friendly Culture Day event offers a variety of live entertainment, music, and crafts.
Ronnie Dean Harris aka Ostwelve will be showcasing a combination of spoken word poetry, storytelling and live hip-hop dance based on his experiences and travels as an Indigenous artist growing up in Albion and spiraling out into the world. Raven Spirit Dance will be performing Frost Exploding Trees Moon, a solo piece following the physical and spiritual journey of a woman as she travels her trap lines, sets up camp, and settles into the centre of her world of breath and perception.
You also won’t want to miss our latest Art Gallery exhibition, Modern Legends, featuring the traditional and contemporary storytelling artwork of Contemporary First Nations artists, Sonny Assu, Corey Moraes, Carrielynn Victor, and Brandon Gabriel. The exhibition is ongoing until October 28, 2017.
