TED Cinema Experience: TED 2017 - The Future You

Monday, May 1, Tuesday May 2 & Sunday, May 7

Awe. A sense of wonder. Life changing. Inspirational. All words used to describe the experience that is TED.

You have seen TED Talks but have never experienced TED – the global phenomenon propelled by ideas that are transforming the world. Until now. TED Cinema Experience will bring TED’s flagship event, TED2017: The Future You – happening April 24-28 in Vancouver, Canada – to cinema audiences around the world in three big screen events over one week.

TED2017 will explore the deepest scientific and psychological insights, the latest medical advances, and thrilling new inventions (all mixed with a dose of ancient wisdom), and will ask questions about our present and future selves that we often don’t have time for. The program will feature a succession of extraordinary speakers – risk-takers, visionaries, celebrities, and an emerging generation of idea creators – who will deliver the “talk of their lives” in TED’s world-famous format.

Through the TED Cinema Experience series, we all have access to the TED experience, giving us the opportunity to have our curiosity sparked, minds opened, and worlds shifted — together through three community viewing events on cinema screens. See the world in new ways through your participation.

All events are PG. Suitable for audiences 13 and older.

Turner Big Screen Classics: The Godfather

Turner Big Screen Classics: The Godfather

Wednesday, June 7, 7PM

Rated: R

Starring: Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan
Directed by: Francis Ford Coppola
Screenplay: Mario Puzo, Francis Ford Coppola

Popularly viewed as one of the best American films ever made, the multi-generational crime saga The Godfather is a touchstone of cinema: one of the most widely imitated, quoted, and lampooned movies of all time. Marlon Brando and Al Pacino star as Vito Corleone and his youngest son, Michael, respectively. It is the late 1940s in New York and Corleone is, in the parlance of organized crime, a “godfather” or “don,” the head of a Mafia family. Michael, a free thinker who defied his father by enlisting in the Marines to fight in World War II, has returned a captain and a war hero. Having long ago rejected the family business, Michael shows up at the wedding of his sister, Connie (Talia Shire), with his non-Italian girlfriend, Kay (Diane Keaton), who learns for the first time about the family “business.”

Exhibition on Screen: Michaelangelo, Love and Death

Exhibition on Screen: Michaelangelo, Love and Death

Tuesday, June 13, 7 PM

Directed by David Bickerstaff.

The spectacular sculptures and paintings of Michelangelo seem so familiar to us, but what do we really know about this renaissance genius? Who was this ambitious and passionate man?

A virtuoso craftsman, Michelangelo’s artistry is evident in everything he touched. Beautiful and diverse works such as the towering statue of David, the deeply moving Pietà in the Papal Basilica of St. Peter and his tour-de-force, the Sistine Chapel ceiling still leave us breathless today.

Spanning his 89 years, Michelangelo – Love and Death, takes a cinematic journey from the print and drawing rooms of Europe, through the great chapels and museums of Florence, Rome and the Vatican to explore the tempestuous life of Michelangelo. We go in search of a greater understanding of this most charismatic figure, his relationship with his contemporaries and his valuable artistic legacy. Through expert commentary and Michelangelo’s own words, this film takes a fresh look at an enigmatic man whose life is celebrated in every mark and every stroke he made.

A giant artistic force and universally loved, discover why Michelangelo is without a doubt one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance – and perhaps of all time.

 


 

NT Live: Salomé

NT Live: Salomé

Thursday, June 22, 7PM

The story has been told before, but never like this.

An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world.

This charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the centre of a revolution.

Internationally acclaimed theatre director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production on the stage of the National Theatre. ‘Epic. A near-perfect production.’ Guardian (on Les Blancs)
