Programmer's Blurb September 2012

By : metro

Hi Everyone,
Do you ever notice how quickly time goes by? Metro Cinema has been screening films since
1970, but our last year in the Garneau Theatre feels like it’s been our busiest year ever. With over
a thousand screenings, of hundreds of different movies (including both features and shorts), from
dozens of countries, with scores of partners. We’ve screened different people’s ideas of classic
cinema, from The Passion of Joan of Arc, to Jaws; from filmmakers as diverse as the Coen brothers
to the Dardenne brothers. We’re not slowing down anytime soon. We invite you to help celebrate our 1st Birthday in the Garneau, with a week of excellent film, Sept 14 to 20th. We start with Bump it at the Metro, a night of new bumpers and trailers made for us by local filmmakers. We’ve got a brand new print of Hitchcock’s The Birds; the Edmonton premiere of Prairie Tales 14, our annual touring package of new Alberta short films. And yes, back by popular demand is the Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat Breakfast Cereal Cartoon Party!
Other September highlights include Legend of a Warrior, a documentary on Edmonton Kung Fu legend Frank Lee; Tabu, an award-winning Portugese film fresh from its TIFF debut; as well as Ziggy Stardust, Cleopatra, Bruce Lee, SCTV and Marty McFly!
Thanks very much to all of Metro’s staff, board, volunteers, partners – and you Edmonton’s film lovers.
Enjoy another great year of movies!

Pete, Jill & Marsh
