Movie Night: Get Out @ Cathedral of St. John
Apr 5 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The CFR will host a showing of the 2017 film, Get Out, which stars Daniel Kaluuya as Chris, a black man who notices unusual behavior from the black housekeeper and groundskeeper at the family home of his white girlfriend. Described by its creator as a “racial horror film,” it is less a classic horror film with ghosts and demons, than a science fiction thriller that explores racial fears in the Black community, white allyship, slavery, stereotypes and microagressions. To help our audience digest and discuss the film we will hear brief reactions to it from a horror film scholar, a black film scholar and a therapist who focuses on race relations, as therapy is also a key theme in the film. The audience will be invited to share their reactions as well.

Showcase Cinemas Bring Backs Presents: Titanic @ Showcase Cinemas Warwick

April 15, 1912, a day that will forever be imprinted on the hearts of millions – the day the Titanic sank. Fast forward 85 years and the James Cameron written and directed film, Titanic, was released, breaking world-wide box office records. The film presents a love story of two young souls, Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) and Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio), daring one another to nurture a passion that would change their lives forever. Once he opens her eyes to the world that lies outside her gilded cage, Rose and Jack’s forbidden love begins a powerful mystery that ultimately echoes across the years into the present. Nothing on earth is going to come between them — not even something as unimaginable as the sinking of Titanic.

Reserve your tickets now to view this iconic film back on the big screen! Titanic will play at select theatres on May 10th and May 13.
