Description

Special Event! The director will be here for a Q&A after the film!

Regular Cinecenta prices

REVELSTOKE: A Kiss in the Wind

Director: Nicola Moruzzi; Italy/Canada, 2016, 75 min.

On October 15, 1915, in the mountains of Western Canada, a tragic work accident snuffed out the life of 28 year-old Angelo Conte, a young immigrant from Veneto. In the thirty months spent far away from his wife Anna, Angelo never stopped writing. One hundred years later, Angelo’s love letters have re-emerged from a drawer, giving rise to a new adventure. Nicola Moruzzi, director of this documentary and great-grandson of Angelo, leaves for Canada with his partner Irene, searching for traces of his departed great-grandfather’s story.

Film FENCES 2017-05-08 19:00:00
Description

FENCES

Director: Denzel Washington, USA, 2016, 139 min; PG

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

WINNER: BEST ACTOR – DENZEL WASHINGTON –SAG Awards

WINNER: BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS - VIOLA DAVIS --Academy Awards

Denzel Washington directed and stars in this adaptation of August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, which centers on a black garbage collector named Troy Maxson in 1950s Pittsburgh. Bitter that baseball's color barrier was only broken after his own heyday in the Negro Leagues, Maxson is prone to taking out his frustrations on his loved ones. Both Washington and co-star Viola Davis won Tonys for their performances in the 2010 revival of the play. Stephen Henderson, Jovan Adepo, Russell Hornsby, and Mykelti Williamson round out the supporting cast.

“The dazzling acting duet of Washington and Davis create a movie experience you won't forget.” --Rolling Stone

Film George Orwell's 1984 2017-05-09 19:00:00
Description

1984

Director: Michael Radford, UK, 1984, 115 min; 14A.  Cast: John Hurt, Suzanna Hamilton, Richard Burton

Oceania is at war with Eurasia; Big Brother watches from every wall. Loudspeakers blare party propaganda on every street. It's 1984 in a London where Winston Smith (John Hurt) works rewriting old newspaper stories to fit the latest corrected truth. When a fellow worker, Julia (Suzanna Hamilton) passes him a secret note with the words 'I love you' they begin a dangerous, illicit relationship, defying the party and Big Brother with their love. Sniffing around suspiciously is the brutally cynical O'Brien (Richard Burton) from the inner party...And the Thought Police are everywhere.

A chilling vision of political correctness taken to its ultimate, bleak conclusion, George Orwell's novel of post war England was, on its publication in 1948, a wail of despair at what the world might have been coming to. Nazism and Communism with a dose of Fascism all are recognisable in Michael Radford's brilliant evocation of a world in which love is illegal, Big Brother is omnipresent and newspeak is eradicating the meaning of words. "War is peace / freedom is slavery / ignorance is strength..." blares the ever-audible loudspeaker system throughout the land. Doublethink is the new principle.--Urban Cinefile

Lecture/Seminar Health Information Science Seminar Series: Exploring new challenges for Health Informatics research and education in the context of Precision Medicine 2017-05-10 12:00:00
Description

Health Information Science Seminar Series:

Presented by Dr. Fernando Martin-Sanchez

The US Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) defines precision medicine as an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle. This presentation will examine how health informatics can contribute to generating richer and more robust evidence about healthcare aims, health processes, and health outcomes in the context of Precision Medicine through Participatory Health Technologies. It will also present potential new ways of structuring our skills, methods, expertise and educational programs such that the next generation of health informaticians is placed at the best possible position to respond to these new challenges.

Presented in collaboration with the Institute on Aging & Life Long Health, University of Victoria.

Film TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH 2017-05-10 19:00:00
Description

TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH

(David Lavallee, Canada, 2016, 82 min)

This documentary, narrated by Emma Thompson, follows concerned citizens living at the frontiers of extreme oil and gas extraction, bearing witness to a global crossroads. They call for human ingenuity to rebuild society at the end of the fossil fuel era.

The people we meet are uniquely positioned to watch this global crossroads unfold. For example, the mayor of an Inuit village in Canada’s high Arctic who is concerned that seismic testing for oil in the ocean is blowing up the eardrums of the animals that the Inuit hunt to survive. Or the environmental lawyer who goes on a journey to areas that produce energy for the tar sands of Alberta — he learns of the massive inputs of energy that have to be put into this resource — and the reasons why the second largest oil project in the world is economically unsustainable. Or the river conservationist in Utah who fights to protect the Colorado River from oil shale projects that would disturb its headwaters.

"To the Ends of the Earth" brings forward the voices of those who not only denounce the rise of extreme energy, but also envision the new world that is taking shape in its stead: a future beyond the resource pyramid, a post-growth economy.

"WONDERFULLY IN TOUCH WITH THIS HISTORICAL MOMENT" –Mark Achbar, The Corporation

Film TONI ERDMANN 2017-05-11 19:00:00
Description

TONI ERDMANN

Director: Maren Ade; Germany, 2016, 163 min; German with subtitles; 14A

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

Comedies are supposed to be short, but this German farce succeeds by virtue of its endlessness—like its hero, an aging irrepressible joker, the movie keeps bugging you until you can't help but laugh. Winfried (Peter Simonischek) loves gags and goofy disguises, and his penchant for fun has alienated him from his grown daughter (Sandra Hüller), now a hard-charging business consultant. Winfried travels to Bucharest to spend a few weeks with the daughter and turns her neatly ordered world upside down, donning fake teeth and a black hippie wig and passing himself off to her associates as life coach Toni Erdmann. –Chicago Reader

A crazy, inventive, and emotive father/daughter escapade. –Toronto Star

Film THE SENSE OF AN ENDING 2017-05-12 19:00:00
Description

THE SENSE OF AN ENDING

Directed by Ritesh Batra; UK, 2017, 109 min; PG

Starring Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Harriet Walter, Michelle Dockery.

Memory is a tricky thing and sometimes what we thought we knew turns out to be not quite the case. Such as the ways life unfolds for an aging Englishman as the past intrudes into the present. Ritesh Batra (‘The Lunchbox’) adapts Julian Barnes’ Man Booker Prize-winning novel into a contemplative but compelling tale about regret, remorse and redemption.

As always, Jim Broadbent is a joy to behold. He’s Tony Webster, who’s semi-retired but operates a specialty camera shop in part because of a young woman named Veronica he knew during his halcyon days at university.

News of an inheritance, along with the diary of a long-departed college friend who died by suicide, throws Webster’s life into turmoil. Two parallel stories unfold, with the past and present seeming to collide and merge, as Webster seeks to find a measure of inner peace.

The cast is uniformly solid, including Charlotte Rampling, who delivers a subtle but powerful performance as the mysterious Veronica and Harriet Walter as Tony’s tart-tongued ex-wife Margaret. Be prepared for unexpected twists. –Toronto Star

“’Ending” looks terrific, suffused as it is with British manners and everything-in-its-placeness. It’s a cozy movie with a decidedly un-cozy message — about the perils of resuscitating our pasts, and the even bigger risk of leaving them be.” –Washington Post

“The movie is ultimately Broadbent's showcase, and he shoulders the dramatic burden with sly, curmudgeonly expertise.”Los Angeles Times

“Anglophiles and graying art house aficionados represent the main audience for this well-acted drama flecked with quiet humor.”The Hollywood Reporter

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest.

Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.

Film THE SENSE OF AN ENDING 2017-05-13 19:00:00
Description

THE SENSE OF AN ENDING

Directed by Ritesh Batra; UK, 2017, 109 min; PG

Starring Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Harriet Walter, Michelle Dockery.

Memory is a tricky thing and sometimes what we thought we knew turns out to be not quite the case. Such as the ways life unfolds for an aging Englishman as the past intrudes into the present. Ritesh Batra (‘The Lunchbox’) adapts Julian Barnes’ Man Booker Prize-winning novel into a contemplative but compelling tale about regret, remorse and redemption.

As always, Jim Broadbent is a joy to behold. He’s Tony Webster, who’s semi-retired but operates a specialty camera shop in part because of a young woman named Veronica he knew during his halcyon days at university.

News of an inheritance, along with the diary of a long-departed college friend who died by suicide, throws Webster’s life into turmoil. Two parallel stories unfold, with the past and present seeming to collide and merge, as Webster seeks to find a measure of inner peace.

The cast is uniformly solid, including Charlotte Rampling, who delivers a subtle but powerful performance as the mysterious Veronica and Harriet Walter as Tony’s tart-tongued ex-wife Margaret. Be prepared for unexpected twists. –Toronto Star

“’Ending” looks terrific, suffused as it is with British manners and everything-in-its-placeness. It’s a cozy movie with a decidedly un-cozy message — about the perils of resuscitating our pasts, and the even bigger risk of leaving them be.” –Washington Post

“The movie is ultimately Broadbent's showcase, and he shoulders the dramatic burden with sly, curmudgeonly expertise.”Los Angeles Times

“Anglophiles and graying art house aficionados represent the main audience for this well-acted drama flecked with quiet humor.”The Hollywood Reporter
