It is the only theatre in Edmonton to have a Cry Room. It is a sound-proof viewing room in the main theatre equipped with volume control and a change table; ideal for families.

    Drama, Comedy
    Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Boyhood by writer/director Richard Linklater (director and co-writer of Before Midnight) is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's "Yellow" to Arcade Fire's "Deep Blue." Boyhood is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

    Director: Richard Linklater

    Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane, Nick Krause, Evie Thompson

    Documentary
    How to Survive a Plague is a 2012 American documentary film about the early years of the AIDS epidemic, and the efforts of ACT UP and TAG. It was directed by David France, a journalist who covered AIDS from its beginnings. For France it was his first film. He dedicated it to his partner, who died of AIDS-related pneumonia in 1992. The documentary was produced using more than 700 hours of archived footage which included news coverage, interviews as well as film of demonstrations, meetings and conferences taken by ACT UP members themselves. France says they knew what they were doing was historic, and that many of them would die. The film, which opened in select theatres across the United States on September 21, 2012, also includes footage of a demonstration during mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral in 1989.

After a long and eventful life, Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and that the days are getting tedious.

It would be the adventure of a lifetime for anyone else, but to Allan it is just ordinary life. Not only has he witnessed some of the most important events of the twentieth century, he has actually played a key role in them.

For a hundred years Allan Karlsson did rattle the world, and now he's on the loose again.
