The Pitch (May 27 – June 2)

The Pitch (May 27 – June 2)

Jazz, Opera, Tango, New Wave – It’s a musical week at The Civic!

Introducing the set for the weekend run, we have Sally Field bringing much love to her role in Hello, My Name is Doris (rated PG), who inspired by a self-help seminar decides to pursue her much younger co-worker. And on the split, the opening guitar chords of Sing Street (Rated PG), bring the promise of romance to Cosmo, a Dublin teenager who forms a band in the mid-80’s to win the heart of a mysterious girl.

As a special Sunday matinee on May 29th, Tango comes to town. The TIFF celebrated documentary, Our Last Tango, produced by Wim Wenders, concludes Soul Tango’s Argentine Tango Gala Weekend. For more info on the weekend visit their Facebook page.

“Don’t call it jazz, man — that’s some made-up word,” Cheadle’s Davis says in the trailer. “It’s social music.” Whatever you want to call it, Miles Davis’s music is pure expression and will not disappoint on the Civic’s 7.1 sound system.  Cheadle’s, passion project places you right in the middle of late era Miles and explores his tumultuous life and the music… oh the music. Miles Ahead (rated 14A), plays on Mon. May 30 and Thurs. June 2.

And to take a refined file to all that raspy attitude, The Royal Opera House’s 2016 production of Donizetti’s tragic masterpiece Lucia di Lammermoor, plays on Wednesday, June 1.

If you don’t leave the theatre singing or whistling after any of these programs, X-Men: Apocalypse opens on it’s second week, starting June 3rd.
