The Pitch (June 17 – 23_

A wonderfully busy single-screen this week at The Civic.

From the parlour to the potty and everything in between, there is bound to be something for the discerning cinephile. As always, concerned with your education as well as your entertainment, this week The Civic brings you six titles to improve your grounding in the studies of Latin, Economics, Inquiry, Music, Elocution and Anatomy.

Part of a three-way feature split over the weekend/Tuesday run, the rowdy girls from the Kappa Nu sorority house, like Delta Psi Beta before them, soil the life of, Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) in Neighbhours 2: Sorority Rising (14A). The young family finding it difficult to sell their house that neighbours a just moved-in sorority, enlist the help of former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.

Held hostage on live-broadcast television by a bomb-wearing investor who lost everything, Money Monster (14A) host Lee Gates (George Clooney) and producer Patty Fenn (Julia Roberts) must work furiously against the clock to unravel the mystery behind a conspiracy at the heart of today’s fast-paced, high-tech global markets.

And for our final lesson from the three-way split, The Nice Guys (14A) inquiry styles collide when the pair of private eyes co-investigate the apparent suicide of a fading porn star in 1970s Los Angeles.

On Saturday, Patrick Stewart, like you’ve never seen him before, forces a side lesson in survival into our music study.  A Punk Band on tour strays into a secluded part of the pacific northwest and reluctantly plays a gig for a group of skin heads in need of gas money.  What they witness will leave them fighting for survival from the Green Room (18A). This is the first of hopefully a series of midnight cult and future cult films. Come out and support it if you would like to see this grow.  Those already going to the 9pm screening of Neighbours 2, can make it a double-bill for half-price.

Clever repartee and excellent elocution are staples of Jane Austin and are here delivered most excellently in the 99% Rotten Tomatoes rated Love and Friendship (G). A Thursday film with an added Monday screening before hand.

And finally we give you the anatomy lesson, and I am not referring to the Rembrandt painting.  The Royal Ballet transforms the Frankenstein monster, the lumbering beast made up of body parts from many contributors into elegant motion ~ Screening Wednesday at 7pm.

Next week we will get going on our genetic experiments when we bring in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, and begin our exorcism practicum with The Conjuring 2. Further lessons include meditation with Gurukulam and motherhood with The Meddler.

Don’t forget to do your homework.
