In the absence of being together in the theatre,  we are humbled and grateful for the many ways you have shown us your support- in  words of encouragement, purchasing walk-up concessions (and sometimes spending more than you need to),  renting virtual cinema,  making donations,  purchasing gift tickets/discount passes (for future use)...  We are very fortunate in these times to be the beneficiaries of such kindness.  Your commitment makes ours even stronger - to welcome you back  safely when the time is right  and provide you with the magic of the movies! 

Until then, with heartfelt thanks,  we hope you stay well,

My Wonderful Wanda
thru Thurs May 20
$12 for a 5-day rental
(not rated)  1 hr 50 min  Subtitled.  In German
Winner of awards at Tribeca and Vancouver, this is a delightful satire of the haves and the have-nots set against the backdrop of a gorgeous lakeside villa in Switzerland. At the story's center is Wanda, a Polish caretaker who has left her own small children in Poland to look after Josef,  the stroke-ridden patriarch of the wealthy Wegmeister-Gloor dynasty.

Wanda is adept in navigating the tricky family dynamics between the two grown offspring and the controlling matriarch. But an unexpected turn of events turns everything upside down.

While My Wonderful Wanda exposes present-day realities of class injustice, thanks to writer-director Bettina Oberli's empathetic lens, it is never less than a very human comedy.

                                     Vertical Life Film Tour
                                                                                                                  May 14-22
The VLFT is an original climbing film tour created and conceived by the team behind Vertical Life Magazine in 2020 to celebrate the re-launch of the Magazine following COVID-19 hibernation. This year’s film tour includes 3 original films that celebrate the vertical life.

- OUT OF THE BLUE is an original independent film not previously released. It combines climbing, slack lining and circus arts in a truly unique and visually stunning film that captures the very essence of “vertical life”.  43 min.              

- A THOUSAND WAYS to KISS the GROUND is an exploration into grief and its expression through the stories of individuals who have experienced loss or trauma due to climbing or alpinism. Made in collaboration with the Climbing Grief Fund, this artful compilation of interviews highlights how there is no singular or correct way to grieve. 22 min.

- VALHALLA follows a climbing party that attempts a route of the same name.  It is a remarkable film carefully crafting the story of a father and son climbing team that weaves its way across the longest and hardest roof to date in an exotic location in Getu, China.  53 min.
