The Taming of the Shrew - Stratford Festival
Stratford Festival Simulcast October 1, 1pm $28 adult/$22 senior/$12 student Courtship or conquest? The breakdown of a defiant spirit or a breakthrough that liberates a heart deprived of love? From the world-renowned Stratford Festival, this scintillating production of Shakespeare's boisterous comedy The Taming of the Shrew will stir your emotions as you follow the love story of Katherina and Petruchio - the feisty lovers at the center of Shakespeare's most pointed social commentary. Deborah Hay gives a "performance for the ages" as the Shrew, and Ben Carlson is the perfect counterpoint as her plotting suitor, creating a chemistry that sets the stage alight. The Taming of the Shrew was captured live on stage with a full audience at the Stratford Festival's Festival Theatre on September 29, 2015, using 10 cameras and 128 tracks of sound to create a sensational high-definition, surround-sound production. Additional "pick-up" shots of key performance elements were captured on stage immediately following the performance.

Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse Film
October 2, 2016 1pm all tickets $12 general admission Claude Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, but he was not alone. Great artists like Van Gogh, Bonnard, Sorolla, Sargent, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. These great artists, along with many other famous names, feature in an innovative and extensive exhibition from The Cleveland Museum of Art and The Royal Academy, London. From the exhibition walls to the wonder and beauty of artists' gardens like Giverny and Seebüll, the film takes a magical and widely travelled journey to discover how different contemporaries of Monet built and cultivated modern gardens to explore expressive motifs, abstract color, decorative design and utopian ideas. Guided by passionate curators, artists and garden enthusiasts, this remarkable collection of Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, and avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century will reveal the rise of the modern garden in popular culture and the public's enduring facination with gardens today. Long considered spaces for expressing colour, light and atmosphere, the garden has occupied the creative minds of some of the worlds greatest artists. As Monet said, 'Apart from painting and gardening, I'm no good at anything'. For lovers of art or lovers of gardens, this is an ideal film.
