Race on land, dance in the alpine and soar to the heavens.
Fast cars, mountaineers and angelic voices this week at The Civic.
“One Last Ride” is the slogan on one of the poster iterations for Fast & Furious 7 (rated 14A); An eerie sentiment, as one of its key stars, Paul Walker died as a passenger in a serious car collision nearing the end of final production for Furious 7.

The students of the Self Design WildEarth Outdoor Program host another year of the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival (VIMFF), April 22nd and 27th. The festival is a fundraising effort for the program’s Adventure Workshop Series. The films in this festival depict outdoor adventure in stunning natural landscapes which is what learners in the program are experiencing first-hand.
Voices soar in this week’s Thursday film offering. Stet, a troubled and angry 11-year-old orphan from a small Texas town, ends up at a Boy Choir school back East after the death of his single mom. Completely out of his element, he finds himself in a battle of wills with a demanding Choir Master who recognizes a unique talent in this young boy as he pushes him to discover his creative heart and soul in music. Boychoir (rated PG) plays Thurs. April 23.
Always taking you places.
Have a great week,
