Here's a heads-up about a couple of movies coming in early April. It means that you have to get up, leave the house, and make your way to the cinema, but I think it's worth it. And if you're in or near Guelph, it's better than driving further away. Both films are playing on the April 5 weekend (exact dates and times are still to be confirmed) and I hope this blog announcement will reach some, if not all, of the many voices requesting them.
Searching for Sugarman Returns!
The Oscar-winning doc is back and it begs to be seen and shared with a cinema audience. For more information, see Barb's reaction to the film and Andrew's meditation on how Sugar Man provokes thought about artistic quality and its sometimes tenuous relationship to actual fame.
Cloudburst comes to Guelph!
This indie film from director Thom Fitzgerald (The Hanging Garden) stars Oscar-winning actresses Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker. Thankfully, this film was on our radar before it opened in Toronto (March 8) to strong reviews and we booked it, pronto. It also got an extra media push from Johanna Schneller's great interview piece in the Globe and Mail.
To all who have requested these two films, watch our site next week for exact dates and showtimes, and pass the word.
