The Pitch – What’s playing at The Civic (Aug 25 – 31)

Finish off the summer with some great titles – NO EMOJIs ; )

Detroit (14A) from the acclaimed director of the Hurt Locker, Kathryn Bigelow, shares the week with encore screenings from two of the most fun films of the summer, Spiderman: Homecoming (PG) and Wonder Woman (PG).  Locally made Skate doc, Stigma, and the hilarious Thursday Night indi-comedy, The Little Hours (PG), based on parts of the 14th-century novellas, The Decameron, by Giovanni Boccaccio finish out the week.

In the summer of 1967, rioting and civil unrest starts to tear apart the city of Detroit. Two days later, a report of gunshots prompts the Detroit Police Department, the Michigan State Police and the Michigan Army National Guard to search and seize an annex of the nearby Algiers Motel.

Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine — distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. 

Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.

For the last three years Spencer Legebokoff has been in the streets, including those of Nelson, working on his latest skate film.  Appearances from Lucas Hayes, Tommy Fleming, Kyle Johnston, Trevor Frame, Spencer Legebokoff, and many many more. Your ticket enters you into a raffle.  Come on down to the Civic on August 30th at 7:00PM to see what they’ve accomplished.

Medieval nuns Alessandra, Fernanda, and Ginevra lead a simple life in their convent. Their days are spent chafing at monastic routine, spying on one another, and berating the estate’s day laborer. After a particularly vicious insult session drives the peasant away, Father Tommasso brings on newly hired hand Massetto, a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. Introduced to the sisters as a deaf-mute to discourage temptation, Massetto struggles to maintain his cover. Amongst its mostly positive reviews, The Little Hours was deemed as “pure trash” in its review by The Catholic League.

Coming next: Lucky Logan, The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Inconvenient Truth Sequel and A Ghost Story.
