Programmer's Blurb May 2013

By : metro

Hi everyone,

The cinema exhibition industry has spent the last few years converting to Digital Cinema presentation, and Metro Cinema has now fully entered this brave new world, with the installation of the last part of our Digital Cinema system, we are now able to screen DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages).
Some of our DCPs this month include new titles like Ginger & Rosa by Sally Potter, Wrong by Quentin Dupieux and Spring Breakers by Harmony Korine; alongside classics like The Tin Drum, Taxi Driver and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and the Canadian theatrical premiere of Unclaimed, by Edmonton filmmaker Michael Jorgenson. All are screening from DCP.

However, what sets Metro Cinema apart from most theatres, is our dedication to continue screening 35mm film. Our final installment of the Studio Ghibli Tour is a good example of the new realities of cinema exhibition: we’ll be presenting newly struck 35mm film prints of My Neighbors the Yamadas by Isao Takahata, and Spirited Away by Hayao Miyazaki. We’ll also be presenting the latest Studio Ghibli film, From Up on Poppy Hill by directed by Hayao’s son Goro Miyazaki, which will be screening from DCP.

Also this month, a tribute to influential filmmaker Les Blank (1935 - 2013), the beginning of The Piano Film Series, in partnership with the Art Gallery of Alberta, screenings of the winners of the FAVA Awards of Excellence, and the annual Dreamspeakers Film Festival.

Enjoy the films,
Metro Cinema’s Programming Team
