The Pitch (Sept. 23 – 29); The Week at a Glance

Sully lands his A320 Air Bus in Kootenay Lake this Friday.

Clint keeps pulling off quality films, and at 86, his latest, Sully (PG), has held the number one spot for 2-weeks and running.  Tom Hanks plays Chesley Sullenberger, who became a hero after gliding his plane along the water in the Hudson River, saving all of the airplane flights 155 crew and passengers. Make sure you buckle into The Civic’s cozy cabin chairs this weekend and Tuesday for lift off, and don’t forget to ring the Civic flight attendants for the freshest popcorn this side of the Hudson.

Saddle up Civic members! Making good on our promise to bring you two member films in September to make up for the long wait over summer, we bring you our tribute to Gene Wilder. Mel Brooks’ Blazing Saddles rides across the screen Sept. 26th.   

For all you about to enjoy Nelson’s MASSiF music festival keep the punk culture going.  Danny Says plays as our Doc Weds. on the 28th. About the life and times of Danny Fields, Since 1966, he has played a pivotal role in music and “culture” of the late 20th century: working for the Doors, Cream, Lou Reed, Nico, Judy Collins and managing groundbreaking artists like the Stooges, the MC5 and the Ramones. Danny Says follows Fields from Phi Beta Kappa whiz-kid, to Harvard Law dropout, to the Warhol Silver Factory, to Director of Publicity at Elektra Records, to “punk pioneer” and beyond.

Like Mel, Gene and Danny, Indignation’s (14A), Marcus Messner, is also from “Jewish extraction.” Set in 1951, the story follows Marcus, the idealistic son of a humble kosher butcher from Newark, N.J. Marcus leaves for Ohio to study at a small, conservative college, where he finds himself at odds with the administration, grapples with anti-Semitism and sexual repression and pines after a troubled girl.

Coming Next: Snowden, Bridget Joneses Baby, League of Exotique Dancers w/ live Q & A with Judith Stein and performance by the Show Cats, and Hell or Highwater on Thursday.
