Films to See This October

Wednesday 04th, October 2017 / 05:00
By Morgan Cairns 

Strange Brew
Kicking off Theatre Junction GRAND’s new film series, it doesn’t get much more Canadian than the 1993 comedy, Strange Brew. Starring two of SCTV’s most iconic characters, the Mackenzie Brothers (played by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas), Strange Brew takes a comedic riff on Shakespeare’s Hamlet while remaining quintessentially Canadian with enough plaid and toques to stuff a moose.
Strange Brew will screen at Theatre Junction GRAND on October 15 at 8:00 p.m.

Log Drivers Waltz
Another beloved Canadian classic, Log Drivers Waltz (1979) returns for Quickdraw Animation’s annual outdoor screening. A short film produced by the National Film Board as a vignette to air between shows on CBC, this animated short quickly became a cult favourite. Based on the Canadian folk song of the same name, the short tells the story of a young girl who falls in love with a log driver, who’s occupation has made him the best dance partner around.
Log Driver’s Waltz will screen at Sunalta Community Centre on October 7 at 6:oo p.m.

Castle in the Sky
Part of the Globe Cinema and Quickdraw Animation’s ongoing Studio Ghibli Showcase Series, Hayao Miyazaki’s animated feature, Castle in the Sky (1986), will screen later in October. The adventure of a young girl and boy must fight off pirates and government agents while they search for the floating castle of Laputa. A classic Ghibli film for both the young, and the young at heart.
Castle in the Sky can be seen at Globe Cinema on October 21 at 12:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Sexmission 
If every time you go to the movies you think, “I don’t see nearly enough cult Polish political-satire films!” then boy, do I have a treat for you. Seksmisja (1984), or, Sexmission, is the 1991 Polish sci-fi film about two male scientists who volunteer themselves for a three-year hibernation experiment, only to be awoken 50 years later to a world where all the other men are extinct. Screening as part of Espressokino’s fall series, Red Oktober-or-Komedy in the Komintern; if allusions to the fall of communism and themes of intergender conflict and gender performance sound like an picture-perfect night at the movies, you won’t be disappointed.
Seksmisja will screen at The Roasterie on October 26 at 9:00 p.m.
