Members $12 | Public $17
Edie (Sheila Hancock) has spent 40 years trapped in a colorless life in England, tending to her controlling husband (Donald Pelmear) after his stroke. When he passes away and her daughter (Wendy Morgan) tries to send her to a care home, she packs an old camping bag, leaves her life behind and embarks on an adventure she never got to have – climbing the imposing Mount Suilven in Scotland. Joined by Johnny (Kevin Guthrie), a reluctant local guide, Edie travels to the beautiful village of Lochinver in the Scottish Highlands. Despite the misgivings of Johnny’s girlfriend (Amy Manson) and flatmate (Paul Brannigan), Edie and Johnny form an unlikely friendship. The journey to the summit will be long and difficult, but Edie is determined to prove to herself and everyone else that it’s never too late. (UK, 2018, 102 Mins, English | Dir. Simon Hunter)
DUET FOR CANNIBALS (50th Anniversary Restoration)
Monday, November 25th at 7:30 pm
$12 Members | $17 Public
One of only a handful of films directed by legendary author and philosopher Susan Sontag, Duet for Cannibals is a dryly funny definition-defying psychological serio-comedy concerning the quadrangular relationship formed between two couples, one older and jaded, and the other younger and idealistic. What follows is a psychosexual and emotional entanglement, an intellectual and erotic chess match, and a generation gap battle of wills, staged by Sontag with a hard, austere compositional rigor that has reminded many of the contemporary cinematic endeavors Jean-Luc Godard and Alain Robbe-Grillet, while at the same time belonging to no-one but Sontag, working through the preoccupations of her writing on arts and aesthetics on the screen. (Sweden, 1969, 105 min., NR, Swedish with English subtitles| Dir. Susan Sontag)
LEONARD COHEN: LIVE IN EUROPE 1985 (Music Legends Live Tribute)
Tuesday, November 26th at 7:30 pm
Members $12 | Public $17
Relive a rare concert performance with Leonard Cohen, filmed during his “Various Positions tour” in 1985. The song, “dance me to the end of time”, was a major hit throughout Europe, and his fans lined up for days just to get a ticket for his shows. At the time of this concert, certain parts of Europe were still struggling under the communist regime, and most American bands were denied access. But Leonard Cohen had universal appeal, with song topics ranging from religion, politics, and sex – sometimes all together- with a good amount of angst. This concert is a landmark, as Cohen only toured three times during the 1980’s and was rarely filmed. The songs included are: Bird on a Wire, Story of Isaac, Suzanne, Who By Fire, Chelsea Hotel #2, And Hallelujah, and many more classic hits. Presented by: Shelley Archives inc. 120 min.
