The Pitch (June 19 – 25)

Beachin’ it at The Civic

Aloha Nelson! You can cross ‘Beach it’ off your to do list. The Civic goes to the beach this week with Cameron Crowe’s,  Aloha (rated PG) shot in sunny Hawaii, and the Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys, bio pic Love & Mercy (rated PG). And rounding out our main feature split, M. Yves Saint Laurent (rated PG) will make sure you are stylishly dressed for bike ride along the beach with the Nelson Cycling Club to SPCA’s Kitty Corral.

The ‘A’ list cast should convince you enough, but if you are not coming to Aloha to see Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride or Alec Baldwin, then the Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire, We Bought a Zoo) brand of romance should help you heal from Jurassic World‘s dinosaur bites.

Bill Pohlad, producer of the acclaimed 12 Years a SlaveWild and Brokeback Mountain takes over the directors chair for the 88% Certified Fresh bio pic of Brian Wilson’s decline in mental health while crafting of one of the best pop albums of all time. Love & Mercy stars Paul Dano as Brian in the Beach Boys past and John Cussak plays 80’s Brian under the constant watch of a shady therapist played by Paul Giamatti.

On Monday, June 22nd, The Nelson Cycling Club is excited to bring to the screen two great film, Builders and unReal.  unReal is for those of us who escape. A film that celebrates breaking free from the confines of reality and venturing into a boundless world. This place isn’t remote or hard to find, and yet many never see it. Here, glacial walls transform into mountain bike trails, rain and snow aren’t the only elements to fall from the sky and thousand pound mammals become riding partners.

And for a slightly less weighty mammal snuggling partner, The SPCA brings back the Just For Cats: Internet Cat Video Festival on Weds. June 24.  You will get a chance to adopt your own snugly mammal at the lobby Kitty Corral at 6:30 with the hilarious public outing of the solitary practice of internet cat video watchers commencing at 7:30. Local DJ Jesse Lee AKA Rafferty Funksmith, Artist of the Year at the Kootenay Music Awards, will provide the pre-show vibe followed by a family friendly burlesque from those frisky felines The Showcats.

Oh don’t worry Yves, we will have cat hair rollers on hand for Thursday before we lay out your exquisite garments in your bio pic aptly named Saint Laurent. 1967-1976, one of history’s greatest fashion designers entered a decade of freedom, neither came out of it in one piece.

Surf’s up.
