Dir. Anne Fontaine - 2014 - 99m - France - In French with English Subtitles

In this vibrant seriocomic re-imagining of Flaubert's literary classic Madame Bovary, life imitates art in uncanny ways when British beauty Gemma Bovery (Gemma Arterton) and her husband Charles (Jason Flemyng) move into a charming farmhouse in the very same Norman village where the novel was written a century earlier. Their welcoming neighbor, local baker and Flaubert expert Martin (Fabrice Luchini), becomes entranced with Gemma and sets out to be her guide and mentor. When Gemma catches the eye of a handsome young playboy, Martin begins seeing troubling parallels between her and Flaubert's tragic heroine. Director Anne Fontaine's clever adaptation of Posy Simmonds? graphic novel is at once a cheeky literary mash-up, a sensuous romance, a witty feminist commentary and a heady celebration of French provincial life.

Aug 25 to Aug 27
Tuesday to Thursday 6pm ONLY!

Dir. Felix Herngren - 2013 - 114m - Sweden - In English, French, German, Swedish, Italian, Russian with English Subtitles - No Matinees

Powered by the antics of a mischievous centenarian on the run, blockbuster comedy The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared abounds with irreverent charm. After a long and colorful life working in munitions and getting entangled in the Spanish Civil War, the Manhattan Project, and other definitive events of the 20th century, Allan Karlsson finds himself stuck in a nursing home. Determined to escape on his 100th birthday, he leaps out of a window and onto the nearest bus, kicking off an unexpected journey involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some wicked criminals, and an elephant named Sonya. Like an unruly Nordic cousin of Forrest Gump, Allan’s youthful escapades and current adventures weave together into an offbeat treat for anyone who?s young at heart. Starring beloved comedian Robert Gustafsson, this fanciful spin on world history is based on a best-selling novel and also the highest-grossing Swedish film of all time.

“An absurdist comic fable about an ordinary man who keeps stumbling into extraordinary circumstances.” — David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

“The humor of this film is delivered with such deadpan panache that it’s irresistible. Has a good eye for the madcap, and maintains a constant breezy mood.” — Demetrios Matheou, Screen Daily

Dir. Francois Simard, Anouk Whissell & Yoann-Karl Whiss - 2015 - 95m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation! $8 general / $6 students

DOOR PRIZES COURTESY OF LOBO ANIME AND COMICS!!

Fuelled by offbeat humour with lashings of action and gore Turbo Kid stars the iconic MICHAEL IRONSIDE (Starship Troopers, Scanners) as Zeus, MUNRO CHAMBERS (Degrassi - The Next Generation, Cracked) as The Kid, LAURENCE LEBOEUF (19-2, Trauma) as Apple, AARON JEFFERY (X-Men Origins) as Frederic, EDWIN WRIGHT (Top of the Lake) as Skeletron and ROMANO ORZARI (Omertà) as Bagu.

In a post-apocalyptic parallel future of 1997, an orphaned teenager called The Kid scavenges the Wasteland searching for relics from a better time (the 80s). During one of his expeditions he meets Apple, a mysterious girl with a rather large secret. As their relationship deepens, they accidentally run afoul of Zeus, the self-proclaimed leader of the Wasteland. Zeus, a sadistically droll maniac who murdered The Kid's parents, now controls the Wasteland's most precious commodity: fresh water. When Zeus' gang kidnaps Apple, The Kid joins forces with Frederick, the laconic leader of the legendary Arm-Wrestling Clan. Armed with little more than blind faith and an ancient turbo-charged weapon, The Kid must fulfill his ultimate destiny: destroy Zeus, avenge his parents' death and get the girl of his dreams.

"A pitch-perfect pastiche that never mocks its inspirations, the picture is silly fun to warm the hearts of aging fanboys and delight hipsters who weren't yet born the first time Mel Gibson donned Max's leathers." - John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter

"Perhaps the most colorful film ever made with a postapocalyptic setting, Turbo Kid is a loud, energetic homage to Eighties kitsch." - Laura Kern, Film Comment Magazine
