Description

GRANDMA

Director: Paul Weitz   USA, 2015, 82 minutes

A honey of a role for Lily Tomlin. Playing an ill-tempered lesbian on an odyssey to raise the money her granddaughter needs for an abortion, Tomlin is in her glorious element. It doesn't hurt that there are numerous other expertly gauged performances to savor, plus a bundle of heart, in this consistently funny and poignant comedy-drama. Anybody who loves Lily Tomlin won't want to miss this.  –The Hollywood Reporter

Lecture/Seminar Urban Deer and the Urban Wildlife Stewardship Society 2016-02-08 19:30:00
Description

NATURAL HISTORY NIGHT

The Columbian Black-tailed Deer, a species native to Vancouver Island and now common within the Capital Regional District, is a delight to many residents and visitors, but a pest to many others. The community is divided, sometimes resulting in animosity between neighbours. The Urban Wildlife Stewardship Society (UWSS) was formed to present a science-based alternative to lethal culls of deer, such as the cull that Oak Bay conducted in early 2015. Bryan Gates, President and Kristy Kilpatrick, Vice President of the UWSS will explain the objectives of administering an immunocontraceptive called SpayVac to female deer, which would be trapped, treated, tagged and released in a program to reduce the number of fawns born each spring. The ultimate goal is to control and reduce deer numbers.

Theatre Wild Honey - Preview 2016-02-09 20:00:00
Description

February 11 - 20, 2016

By Michael Frayn 
Adapted from an original play by Anton Chekhov
Directed by Peter McGuire

“The world can rejoice in a ‘new’ play by Chekhov...” - London Sunday Express

Platonov has a way with women. It’s both his blessing and his curse. He knows he’s a cad, but he just can’t help it: women simply believe everything he says! The story takes place in a provincial country estate where Anna, the landowner and a young widow, returns for the summer. Friends, neighbours and family, including her stepson Sergey and his new wife Sofya, welcome her home with a party and as the hot summer day progresses, everyone is playing elaborate games of romantic cat and mouse in one hilarious love triangle. This “Brilliant!” (London Guardian) re-visioning of Chekhov’s unfinished play swings between the polar opposites of melodrama and farce, and shakes them into an intoxicating cocktail. 

Wild Honey is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Recommended for ages 13 and up.

Film THE APU TRILOGY: APARAJITO 2016-02-09 19:00:00
Description

THE APU TRILOGY: APARAJITO

(India, 1956, 109 min; Bengali with subtitles)

In "Aparajito" Satyajit Ray created one of the screen's great family tales -- the story of a mother's love for her son, and the son's conflicting need for adventure and independence. It opens in 1920, in the holy city of Benares, where Apu (Pinaki Sen Gupta) and his parents have settled. Apu's father (Kanu Banerjee), a Brahmin priest, barely makes a living by reciting from Hindu scriptures. A teacher lights the fire of curiosity in Apu's mind, gives him piles of books and opens up the world of knowledge. Thrilled with his discoveries, Apu devours geography, literature, science and language. Ray's use of camera and composition, and his blending of Ravi Shankar’s music into a storytelling fabric, are flawless. –San Francisco Chronicle

Electronic health records (EHR) are promoted due to their capacity to reduce clinicians’ workloads, costs and errors. However, new technology may also pose novel risks to patient safety by disrupting established, traditional working norms and creating new risks in practices related to HIT design, implementation and use. Different patient safety data sources that complement each other are useful in identifying hazards and providing amore comprehensive view of the risks in a particular system.I will talk about the possibilities and challenges of monitoring, identifying and learning more about safety incidents involving health information technology

Film TRUMBO 2016-02-12 15:00:00
Description

TRUMBO

Director: Jay Roach   USA, 2015, 125 minutes; PG

Cast: Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Louis C.K.

“Trumbo” is a corny, well-made B-movie about an A-list screenwriter who had to take jobs writing B-movies after he was blacklisted, but eventually worked his way back to writing A-movies. The great Bryan Cranston sinks his teeth into the title role. There’s a lot of ham and cheese in the performance, but it’s great fun to watch. Dalton Trumbo was a larger-than-life character who was probably the most successful and famous of “The Hollywood Ten,” writers and directors with sympathies to the Communist Party who were cited for contempt of Congress in 1947 for refusing to cooperate with the House Committee on Un-American Activities. “Trumbo” is a reminder of just how wrong the HUAC was, and just how brave Trumbo was to fight back  --Chicago Sun-Times

“A WARM AND WITTY PROFILE IN COURAGE.” –Movie Nation

Trumbo is breezy and pithy without ever undercutting the seriousness of the subject.” –San Francisco Chronicle

Theatre Wild Honey 2016-02-12 20:00:00
Description

February 11 - 20, 2016

By Michael Frayn 
Adapted from an original play by Anton Chekhov
Directed by Peter McGuire

“The world can rejoice in a ‘new’ play by Chekhov...” - London Sunday Express

Platonov has a way with women. It’s both his blessing and his curse. He knows he’s a cad, but he just can’t help it: women simply believe everything he says! The story takes place in a provincial country estate where Anna, the landowner and a young widow, returns for the summer. Friends, neighbours and family, including her stepson Sergey and his new wife Sofya, welcome her home with a party and as the hot summer day progresses, everyone is playing elaborate games of romantic cat and mouse in one hilarious love triangle. This “Brilliant!” (London Guardian) re-visioning of Chekhov’s unfinished play swings between the polar opposites of melodrama and farce, and shakes them into an intoxicating cocktail. 

Wild Honey is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Recommended for ages 13 and up.

Film SHAUN THE SHEEP MOVIE 2016-02-13 13:00:00
Description

SHAUN THE SHEEP MOVIE

Based on a British TV show, Shaun the Sheep Movie is about a flock of cotton-ball characters who travel to the Big City to rescue their farmer. The movie jettisons dialogue altogether and tells its whole story through barn-animal noises, goofy sound effects, and sight gags. The effect is contagiously cute. –Entertainment Weekly
