A new film from Richard Linklater (Boyhood) is always reason to celebrate. This Friday we have the Hamilton premiere of his latest film, a Cate Blanchett-starring adaptation of the best-selling novel, Where'd You Go, Bernadette? Aug 16 marks the 42nd anniversary of Elvis' death (at 42) and we will be marking this occasion with his first (& best) concert film, followed by the cult classic, Bubba Ho-Tep, starring Evil Dead's Bruce Campbell as an Elvis impersonator in a nursing home who takes on a soul-sucking mummy. It's going to be a great night, thank-you very much! The week is filled with music: 50th anniversary Woodstock screenings and Rush: Cinema Strangiato 2019 (with an opening set by Jacob Moon of 'Subdivisions' fame). We have the re-release of the landmark 1990 documentary, Paris is Burning, and the multiple award-winning new doc, Honeyland. Our Exhibition On Screen series continues with Young Picasso, and the booking week wraps up with the Best of the Toronto Motorcycle Film Fest. Vroom vroom!

"The definitive portrait of Elvis the Vegas headliner follows the King through his 1970 summer engagement in Las Vegas from backstage bustle to box-office hustle to 27 stage numbers." - msn.com

Elvis Presley died 42 years ago, on Aug 16, 1977 at the age of 42. We remember him on this date with a theatrical presentation of one of his best concert films. This was his first non-dramatic film, made shortly after his return to live performances, and here he is at his best, both vocally and physically. Share the songs and the memories on the big screen!

“At the beginning of 1900, Vienna became the unwitting European capital of thought and the arts, in an era destined to end with the First World War and the fall of the Hapsburg Empire.

"The remarkable thing about Wadleigh's film is that it succeeds so completely in making us feel how it must have been to be there." - Roger Ebert

Fifty years ago, on Aug. 15, 1969, over a million young people descended on Max Yasgur’s farm in Woodstock, New York for 3 days of peace, love and music. What was meant to be a simple concert became the defining event of a generation—and an everlasting symbol of the power of the collective human spirit.

"Honeyland has become one of the most talked about documentaries of the year, and it's not hard to see why." - The Gate

“The opening frames of Honeyland are so rustically sumptuous that you wonder, for a second, if they’ve somehow been art-directed.
