Programmer's Blurb, June 2012

By : metro

Hi everyone,

Last month we talked about how proud we are that Metro Cinema continues to screen 35mm films, while so many movie theatres are transitioning to digital cinema. While we’re keeping pace with the majors, with our state-of-the-art digital cinema projector, we continue to hunt down increasingly elusive celluloid titles and bring in re-mastered prints that tour the continent. This month’s first run 35mm films include In the Family, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope, Marley and Turn Me On, Goddammit! Re-mastered prints include The Bride Wore Black and two films by Michelangelo Antonioni: Red Desert and The Passenger . Older titles include Two-Lane Blacktop , Bread and Roses, Songs from the Second Floor and Joss Whedon’s Serenity.

Meanwhile, Metro’s monthly film series offer Godard and The Rolling Stones; Dedfest’s unique Father’s Day with filmmakers in attendance, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, with… turtles in attendance? June is Bike Month and Bikeology returns with free screenings, from the 2011 Cannes Best Film Kid With a Bike to the World Premiere of the locally made Bike Heist. The month starts with the Dreamspeakers Film Festival, while nextFest and FAVA’s Main Course highlight Edmonton’s next filmmakers.

Whether digital or film - enjoy the films!
