LUCKY: Indie Film Series at Capitol 6 Event Screening

ONE NIGHT ONLY SCREENING ON 10/25! LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90 year old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having outlived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment.

Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut LUCKY is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection. The Indie Film Series at Capitol 6 is a monthly film festival, Canadian or indie favorite along with special feature content when available.

Presented in the beautiful Capitol 6 with fully reclining, reserved leather seating! Past titles include DRONE, HELLO DESTROYER, THE SUN AT MIDNIGHT and PERSON TO PERSON, all of which screened at film festivals in 2016 and 2017.

Amplify Her – Victoria Purple Carpet Premiere October 20

Five years in the making, the much-anticipated documentary AMPLIFY HER is here!

The Amplify Purple Carpet Tour is kicking off with back-to-back screenings in our hometown of Victoria. We have many surprises including guest appearances from the filmmakers, a few artists, and a lively discussion. Our graphic novels will be hot-off-the-press, and you will be the very first in the world to get your hands on one.

Two shows: 6pm (doors at 5:30) and 8:30pm (doors at 8pm). The 8:30 show is 19+. $15.00 TICKETS

Film Synopsis Music heals, right? Depends on the depths of the wounds. In Amplify Her, three Electronic Dance Music artists battle demons from their painful pasts to emerge as beacons in the global festival scene. Blondtron, Applecat and Lux Moderna overcome isolation, illness, and gender bias to give life to their creativity.

This visually dynamic film weaves animated motion comics created by the characters to offer intimate access into the colourful worlds of emerging female artists. Rather than ask the expected: “why aren’t there more women in this male dominated scene?”, we wonder: “what is unique about feminine expression and how might we all benefit when it flourishes?”

Filmmakers screen documentary featuring Canadian theatre and TV legends

Captured over the course of three years, Martha Burns and Susan Coyne filmed Robin and Mark rehearsing in the intimacy of Robin’s home outside of Stratford. Although Susan and Martha did not know it at the time, Robin was quite ill and would die shortly after the film was finished.

Robin & Mark & Richard III is the story of an unusual collaboration between one of Canada’s most influential directors, Robin Phillips (previously of Stratford Festival) and the gifted comedian and performer, Mark McKinney (of Kids in the Hall, Saturday Night Live and Slings and Arrows fame), as they delve into the one of Shakespeare’s most challenging plays, Richard III. Robin and Mark had not met before, and they had no idea what might happen. It was to be an adventure of two brilliant minds exploring Shakespeare’s world.

Captured over the course of three years, Martha Burns and Susan Coyne filmed Robin and Mark rehearsing in the intimacy of Robin’s home outside of Stratford. Although Susan and Martha did not know it at the time, Robin was quite ill and would die shortly after the film was finished. This film is a love letter to a passionate, complicated, irreplaceable genius. The film has been called “a wonderful look into how actors build performances over time” (Toronto Film Scene) and “equal parts interview, scene study class and in-memoriam tribute to Phillips” (Now Magazine).

The Department of Theatre invites the public to attend a free screening of “Robin & Mark & Richard III” on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 12:30 p.m. Afterwards, join Martha Burns and Susan Coyne, the film’s producers and co-directors, as well as acclaimed Canadian actors and writers, for a question and answer period.
