    Retired Mexican-American chef Martin Naranjo shares an L.A. home with his three gorgeous, but single, adult daughters. Though he long ago lost his ability to taste, Martin still lives to cook incredibly lavish dinners for his loved ones and to serve them in a family-style ritual at traditional sit-down meals. Although the women humor their father's old-fashioned ways, each of them is searching for fulfillment outside the family circle. College student Maribel is growing increasingly frustrated with the singles scene and wants a steady man; gorgeous career woman Carmen is fed up with her boyfriend and his wandering eye; meanwhile, eldest daughter Letitia, who has suppressed her own romantic longings, senses something missing in her life. Things take a turn for the romantic when Dad, a widower, meets a vivacious divorcee on the lookout for a mate and each of his daughters, in turn, finds someone. But they'll all discover that the recipe for happiness may call for some unexpected ingredients.

    Wolfville Farmer's Market will be hosting a Wrap it Up: Tortilla, Taco and Burrito Night! at the Wednesday Market supper. Get your Mexican food fix between 4:00-7:00pm before coming to the theatre for the film!

    The Seagull
    Sunday September 16, 4:00p–5:38p
    Presented by Fundy Cinema
    ▶ Show Details

    Cost: $10

    "After receiving her third Oscar nomination by the age of 23, Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn) follows up Lady Bird with a return to period costume drama, starring alongside four-time Oscar nominee Annette Bening (Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool, 20th Century Women) in an adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s stage classic The Seagull.

    Originally written in 1895, The Seagull is the Russian playwright’s first of four major plays. One summer at a lakeside Russian estate, friends and family gather for a weekend in the countryside. While everyone in the cast of characters is caught up in passionately loving someone who loves somebody else, a tragicomedy unfolds about art, fame, human folly, and the eternal desire to live a purposeful life.

    The Seagull has seen countless stage adaptations over the years, including ballets, operas and two film versions. Broadway director Michael Mayer’s new adaptation stars Bening as the fading actress Irina Arkadina, Ronan as the pretty ingenue Nina, Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris) as the famous writer Boris Trigorin, Billy Howle (The Sense of an Ending) as the lovesick Konstantin, and Elisabeth Moss (The Square, TV's The Handmaid's Tale) as his admirer Masha.

    Adapted by Tony-winning playwright Stephen Karam (The Humans), The Seagull explores, with comedy and melancholy, the obsessive nature of love, the tangled relationships between parents and children, and the transcendent value of art." (Indiewire)

    "Annette Bening, who has enjoyed a late-career renaissance... scores another triumph with her turn as the vainglorious, aging actress Irina." (Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter)

    "Despite a few scenes that are too on the nose, The Seagull... turns out to be very fine. Above all, it's a platform for a handful of definitive performances." (David Edelstein, New York Magazine)

    "Although the action, set in the early 1900s, unfolds almost entirely in and around a Russian lakeside estate, the film rarely feels static or stagy, with enough brisk editing, active camerawork and intimate framing to make for satisfying cinema." (Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times)

    RBG
    Wednesday September 19, 7:00p–8:37p
    Presented by Fundy Cinema
    ▶ Show Details

    Cost: $10

    "When she was growing up, Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s beloved mother Celia gave her two lessons to guide her through life: 'Be a lady' and 'Be independent.' That two-pronged approach appears to have influenced every aspect of the Supreme Court justice’s life, both personal and political. In Betsy West and Julie Cohen’s wide-ranging RBG, Ginsburg’s life—and its many lessons, both learned and taught—come to entertaining and energetic life. It’s a fist-pumping, crowd-pleasing documentary that makes one heck of a play to remind people of Ginsburg’s vitality and importance, now more than ever.

    The film’s opening credits include a slew of slurs unleashed against the associate justice during her long tenure (Donald Trump has called her a 'disgrace'). When Ginsburg finally appears on screen, she’s working out while wearing a bright purple sweatshirt bearing two words: 'super diva.' The message is clear: She’s tough as nails, and she couldn’t care less what the haters think. That’s only the half of it.

    RBG serves as a compelling Ginsburg primer, and West and Cohen are understandably interested in driving home just how fully she fought back sexism at every stage of her professional life, from her experience at Harvard Law and her first steps into full-time work to her Supreme Court appointment.

    Yet it’s the insights into her personal life that feel the most vital, including her bond with her granddaughter (also a Harvard grad) and her decidedly forward-thinking husband Marty, and even her unlikely friendship with fellow judge Antonin Scalia. RBG makes the case for Ginsburg as a hero, but for all aspects of her life, not just the splashy cases that help shape the United States.

    But what might be most inspiring about Ginsburg is how she’s continued to hammer away at her dreams and her desires, even when buffeted back by forces she can’t control. Ginsburg’s evolution is the evolution of America, a story as necessary as ever, as America continues to slip backward, even as Ginsburg continues to push forward." (Kate Erbland, Indiewire)

    "Intimate without being obtrusive, RBG doesn't exactly demystify the Supreme Court so much as it brings us closer to one of its greats." (John Fink, The Film Stage)

    "A documentary that, like its subject, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is eminently sober, well-mannered, highly intelligent, scrupulous and just a teeny-weeny bit reassuringly dull." (Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter)

    Coming from a very diverse musical background, Katrina likes to mix elements of Pop, Jazz, Funk, Folk, A Cappella and Musical Theatre, with a little Celtic and Country thrown in for extra fun.

    Katrina released her album, 'Hopscotch', earlier this year, and it has received airplay and accolades in niche radio throughout Canada, the U.S., Japan, Australia, New Zealand and throughout Europe, along with stations in Africa and Costa Rica.

    The 10-song LP features a dream-team of musicians made up of drummer Pat Steward (Bryan Adams, Matthew Good), bassist Jamey Koch (Jann Arden), synthesizer maestro John Webster (Aerosmith, Bon Jovi) and guitarist Tony Koch (Tony Koch and the AltNews Band). The album was recorded and mixed at Vancouver's Warehouse Studio by Jamey Koch (Tragically Hip, Ron Sexsmith) and mastered at Sterling Sound in New York by Greg Calbi (John Mayer, Norah Jones).

    Katrina is currently working with 3AM Design in Toronto to produce an animated video for her song 'Done With You', and is aiming for a September video release.

    Katrina's concert at Acadia Cinema's Al Whittle Theatre will begin with an opening set by 2016 ECMA Nominee Jeff Jodrey, who writes and plays amazing melodic fingerstyle guitar. A superb and transportive player, and an all-round super nice guy, this is a great chance to catch Jeff live in the Valley.
