Hunt For The Wilderpeople

Thursday, July 28 at 7pm PDT

Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family. Equal parts road comedy and rousing adventure story, director Taika Waititi (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, upcoming THOR: RAGNORAK) masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. A hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE reminds us about the journey that growing up is (at any age) and those who help us along the way.

De Palma (and/or) Scarface Double Bill

Friday, July 29 at 7:30pm PDT

One of the most talented, influential, and iconoclastic filmmakers of all time, Brian De Palma's career started in the 60s and has included such acclaimed and diverse films as Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlito's Way, and Mission: Impossible. In this lively, illuminating and unexpectedly moving documentary, directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow engage in a personal and candid discussion with De Palma, exploring not only his life and work but also his singular approach to the craft of filmmaking and his remarkable experiences navigating the film business, from his early days as the bad boy of New Hollywood to his more recent years as a respected veteran of the field. In the end, what emerges is a funny, honest, and incisive portrait of a truly one-of-a-kind artist, and an exhilarating behind-the-scenes look at the last 50 years of the film industry through the eyes of someone who has truly seen it all.

"De Palma, based on the life of Brian, is an instant film-school classic, distilling a whole career into a tidy 107 minutes and offering a crash course to anyone who loves the language of cinema." - The Georgia Straight

"Paltrow and Baumbach simply walk De Palma through his filmography and collect his best stories. But this systematic approach has a nice leveling effect in that his more obscure, offbeat projects get as much attention as his signature films." - The Chicago Reader

"A trip through his wild and hugely influential filmography is mandatory for any film fan, and that's just what directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow offer in their new documentary." - The Globe and Mail

"He could go on for days with his war stories, and the doc makes you wish he would." - Toronto Star

Scarface

Friday, July 29 at 10pm PDT

Say hello to my lil friend.

Director Brian De Palma and star Al Pacino go full-tilt in SCARFACE, a violent, blood-soaked hyper-stylized gangster epic based on Howard Hughes 1932 film of the same name. From Oliver Stones infinitely quotable script to a few classic scenes that have since become entrenched in the collective pop-culture lexicon, the film easily retains its status as one of the most influential films of the 1980s, walking a thin (white) line between cautionary moralistic drama and a celebratory, glamorous tale of rags-to-riches excess.

In one of the standout roles of his career, Pacino shines as Cuban immigrant Tony Montana, whose saga begins when he acquires his green card in exchange for assassinating a Cuban government official. Tony rises up the ranks of Miami's drug underworld, staking his turf and taking anyone who dares stand in his way down. As Tony rises to the top of the trade to become the biggest drug lord in Florida, he has to deal with increased pressure from the police, wars with Colombian drug cartels, as well as his own greed and coke-fueled paranoia. Also starring F. Murray Abraham, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Robert Loggia.

Perfomances are excellent, and despite its moralistic conclusion, the film has since become de rigueur viewing for crack barons, who know a good shoot-em-up when they see one. (Empire Magazine)

BOOGIE NIGHTS (Paul Thomas Anderson, 1977 / 155 mins / 18A) | Set in 1977 (back when sex was safe), pleasure was a business and business was booming for idealistic porn producer Jack Horner, whose aspirations include elevating his craft to an art form. Horner discovers Eddie Adams, a hot young (not to mention well-endowed) talent working as a busboy in a nightclub, and welcomes him into the extended family of movie-makers, misfits and hangers-on that are always around. Adams’ rise from nobody to a celebrity adult entertainer is meteoric, and soon the whole world seems to know his porn alter ego, “Dirk Diggler”. Now, when disco and drugs are in vogue, fashion is in flux and the party never seems to stop, Adams’ dreams of turning sex into stardom are about to collide with cold, hard reality.

Kathryn Calder & Documentary 'A Matter of Time'

Sunday, July 31 at 6pm PDT

In 2007, musician Kathryn Calder (of The New Pornographers) is touring the world with one of Canada’s biggest indie rock bands when her family receives devastating news: Her mother, Lynn, has two to three years left to live. She has ALS.

Kathryn learns that ALS is a progressive, paralyzing disease, with no treatment or cure. A terminal illness requiring full time care. Consequently, she decides to return to her childhood home, committed to being her mom’s primary caregiver through the final months of her life.

The foundation of Lynn and Kathryn’s bond goes beyond mother and daughter—they share a love of music. Lynn, a former piano teacher, has always dreamed of seeing her daughter in the spotlight, singing her own songs. Inspired to make something beautiful amidst the grief and trauma of this long, painful goodbye, Kathryn transforms the living room of their house into a studio. With her mother in bed just down the hall and her condition worsening every day, Kathryn will fill the house with music and make a record—her first solo album—a parting gift for her biggest fan.

A MATTER OF TIME is a heart-breaking yet hopeful documentary that examines the power of love and music, and the inspiration, salvation, and possibility that occurs when these two forces intersect with the most challenging moment in a young musician’s life.

Join us at the Rio Theatre on Sunday, July 31 at 6:00 pm for a very special screening of A MATTER OF TIME. Kathryn Calder will be present to introduce the film, perform a few songs on our stage, and will participate in a Q&A to follow. Partial proceeds from the evening will be donated to The ALS Society of BC.

After finally achieving the high score, he attracts the attention of the game's designer, the affable Centauri (Robert Preston), who reveals that Starfighter is actually a training ground for developing and recruiting pilots to help fight a real war... In space. Soon, Alex is whisked away to the outer reaches of the galaxy, where Starfighter is being played for real - and with deadly consequence and lives at stake. Alex is compelled to join Centauri's Star League to do battle with the evil Kodan forces, and gets some help along the way from the lizard-like Grig (Dan O'Herlihy).

Love & Friendship

Monday, August 8 at 7pm PDT

Indie mainstay Whit Stillman (METROPOLITAN, THE LAST DAYS OF DISCO) pulls of a fantastic about-face with his latest feature, LOVE & FRIENDSHIP. Kate Beckinsale, Chloë Sevigny, Xavier Samuel and Stephen Fry star in this charming period comedy-drama based on Jane Austen’s little-known novella “Lady Susan.”

As beautiful young widow Lady Susan Vernon (Beckinsale) visits the estate of her in-laws to wait out the colourful rumors about her various dalliances circulating through polite society, she is determined to make a successful match for her daughter Frederica — and herself too, of course. In doing so, she attracts the simultaneous attentions of the young, handsome Reginald DeCourcy, the rich and silly Sir James Martin and the divinely handsome (but married, naturally!) Lord Manwaring, complicating matters severely.

“'Love & Friendship' is Jane Austen with the romance drained out, exposing the pragmatism and the economic urgency underneath. That sounds grim, but the result is actually a tart, fizzy delight from Metropolitan director Whit Stillman.” (Buzzfeed)

“'Love & Friendship' is quick, clever and delightful, very funny and hugely entertaining.” (Toronto Sun)

Wiener-Dog

Monday, August 8 at 9:15pm PDT

Billed as the “spiritual successor” of director Todd Solondz’ (HAPPINESS) much-loved coming-of-age satire WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE, WIENER-DOG is in keeping with darkly comic yet deeply vulnerable tone for which he is best known. This latest film is an anthology featuring people who find their lives inspired or changed by one particularly cute dachshund who seems to be spreading a certain kind of comfort and joy. Man’s best friend starts out teaching a young boy some contorted life lessons before being taken in by a compassionate vet tech named Dawn Wiener (the character played by Heather Matarazzo in WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE is played here by Greta Gerwig). Dawn reunites with someone from her past and sets off on a road trip picking up some depressed mariachis along the way. Wiener-Dog then encounters a floundering film professor (Danny DeVito), as well as an embittered elderly woman (Ellen Burstyn) and her needy granddaughter—all longing for something else. Also starring Kieran Culkin and Julie Delpy.

“If anything binds the tales together, in fact, it is not the central beast but the persistence of the director’s misanthropy and the disarming elegance with which he lends it dramatic form.” (The New Yorker)

“Students of the filmmaker’s exactingly composed mise-en-thropy will revel in the new pic’s freezing wit, jaundiced societal observation and inventive star casting.” (Variety)
