Ruben Brandt, Collector – Apr.17 @ 1:30 & 7pm, Apr.18 @ 1:30 @ Astor Theatre
Apr 18 @ 1:30 pm

Ruben Brandt, a famous psychotherapist, is forced to steal 13 paintings from the world’s renowned museums and private collections to prevent his suffering from terrible nightmares he has as a result of subliminal messaging he received as a child.

Richard’s comments:

“Ruben Brandt, Collector” is so rich with visual imagery it feels like flipping through a thick copy of “Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine.” Even the name Ruben Brandt is a sly reference, culled from the names Rubens and Rembrandt but this isn’t just style over substance, it’s style as substance. It’s a loving pop culture pastiche that is a reverential as it is action packed. There are car chases and heist scenes that owe as much to cubism as they do to William Friedkin.

You’ll want to watch “Ruben Brandt, Collector” more than once just to catch all the references. The imagery will seem familiar—who hasn’t at least glimpsed Picasso’s cubist paintings?—but like “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” this movie takes familiar images and tropes and forms them into something fresh and exciting.

Runtime: 1h36m

Apr 19 @ 7:00 pm

We all have a superhero inside of us — it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In 14-year-old Billy Batson’s case, all he needs to do is shout out one word to transform into the adult superhero Shazam. Still a kid at heart, Shazam revels in the new version of himself by doing what any other teen would do — have fun while testing out his newfound powers. But he’ll need to master them quickly before the evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivana can get his hands on Shazam’s magical abilities.

Once On This Island Jr. @ Astor Theatre
May 9 @ 7:00 pm

The story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who falls in love above her class, is told around a fire by a group of Caribbean peasants as they wait out a terrible storm. A story of “two worlds, never meant to meet,” where the power of love is tested against the power of death — a lesson well told for generations to come. The gods oversee Ti Moune’s courageous journey as she withstands the storm and crosses the Earth to put her spirit to the test and challenge the fabric of a divided society. The DEVI International School in Mill Village presents this Caribbean-flavoured, sung-through musical, and hopes to continue its participation in Liverpool’s rich culture of musical theatre! Please enjoy!

The Grizzlies – May 15 & 16 @ 1:30 & 7pm @ Astor Theatre
May 15 @ 1:30 pm

THE GRIZZLIES is an inspiring true story based on a group of Inuit students in the small Arctic town of Kugluktuk. Suffering from widespread drug use, alcohol abuse, domestic violence and one of the highest teen suicide rates in the world, this northern community is periled by the legacy of colonialism. The students are naturally skeptical when Russ Sheppard, yet another ignorant and unprepared white rookie teacher, arrives from the South on a one-year teaching contract. With much to learn, but deeply shaken by the death of one of his students, Russ introduces his class to the sport of lacrosse in an effort to help lift the dangerous fog of trauma existing in his students. While initially resistant, the students gradually come together to embrace the sport, form Team Grizzlies, and find inspiration to make shifts in their own lives. Together with Russ, the team gains the support of a deeply divided town and eventually negotiates its way to the National Lacrosse Championships in Toronto. Despite their ultimate defeat, The Grizzlies discover that success doesn’t lie in the outcome of a lacrosse game; but instead, in the spirit of community.

Jazz Affair – Wishes Tour @ Astor Theatre
May 18 @ 7:30 pm

Jazz Affair unites six unique voices (three females — three males) into a colourful and dynamic whole. Their repertoire is varied and includes jazz standards and popular songs rearranged with a jazz touch. Influenced by Manhattan Transfer and New York Voices, two flagship bands of American jazz, Jazz Affair stands out by its 100% a cappella sound, making it one of the rare professional vocal jazz bands in Canada.

Formed at Laval University in 2009, Jazz Affair made a splash from the start by winning the Concours du Disque at Laval University two years in a row, in 2010 and 2011. In April 2012, the group was chosen for the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival in New York where it won two prizes: the prize for best arrangement and the prize for best soloist, awarded to Marie-Pier Deschênes. Since then, Jazz Affair has taken the stage at many events and festivals, such as the Festival de Jazz de Quebec (2013), the Francofolies in Montréal (2013 and 2014), the Montréal A Cappella Festival (2013 and 2014), Sutton Jazz (2016) and the Festival International des Hautes-Laurentides (2017). Coming out strong with their first album (JAM) which came out in early 2017, the group now aims to find new audiences beyond its native Quebec. A tour in British-Colombia and two conferences in Western Canada are coming on fall 2018. Jazz Affair is now recording its second album (WISHES), which will launch in early 2019.

The Lonely – Celebrating the Music of ROY ORBISON

The Big O was unmistakable with his trademark sunglasses, distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions and dark emotional ballads. From 1960 to ’64 Roy Orbison landed 22 songs on the Billboard Top 40, including “Only The Lonely,” “Crying,” and “Oh, Pretty Woman.” His impassioned voice, bridging the gap between baritone and tenor, coupled with his signature arrangements ensured the charting of the hits “Dream Baby,” “Ooby Dooby,” “Blue Angel,” “Blue Bayou,” “You Got It,” and “In Dreams.” Mike Demers delivers a spot-on performance of Orbison’s signature sound.

As a part of THE TRAVELING WILBURYS, Orbison brought us “End of the Line,” “Handle With Care,” and “You’re Not Alone Anymore.” A prolific writer, Orbison pitched “Claudette” to The Everly Brothers. The track was a co-number one with the Everlys’ “All I Have to Do is Dream.” Orbison and The Everly Brothers tore the house down on TV’s Shindig performing Roy’s “What’d I Say.”

The Everly Brothers charted 31 singles on the Hot 100, including 12 top 10 hits. Billboard ranked the pair as the No. 66 biggest act in the Hot 100’s 55-year history. The Everly Brothers are the chart’s third-biggest duo ever and their influence has been incredibly wide-ranging. Because their career predates the Hot 100’s launch, some of their best-known hits aren’t on the list, including “Bye Bye Love,” “Wake Up Little Susie,” and “All I Have to Do Is Dream.” THE LONELY delivers their single biggest hit “Cathy’s Clown” in a stellar performance.

THE LONELY delivers a sensitive and dynamic tribute to the one and only Roy Orbison plus the hits of The Traveling Wilburys and The Everly Brothers. Veteran Mike Demers leads this group of musical journeymen in their mutual and deep appreciation of the timeless music of an era. THE LONELY approaches the music with a humble spirit and sincere desire to recreate the sounds and feel of the original recordings. The band has been selling out shows right from their debut.
