Captain Fantastic 1

Monday September 12 at 2pm, 4:30pm & 7:15pm

CAPTAIN FANTASTIC

In this delightfully offbeat and heartwarming tale about love, duty and family, Viggo Mortensen stars as the back-to-nature patriarch of a family of 8. When tragedy strikes, the non-conformist family are forced to travel across the country in their camper van. Both heartbreak and hilarity ensue as the kids face some of their first social interactions with the wider world – discovering hot dogs and the poison-water soda.  14A  120 minutes

Single tickets for individual films are available, in advance, in our Gallery Shop – $13 each. Tickets may be available at our table in the Galaxy foyer before each screening.

The Dressmaker 1

Monday October 3 at 2pm, 4:30pm & 7:15pm

THE DRESSMAKER

This wickedly comic drama stars Kate Winslet as a worldly dressmaker returning to the Australian back-water that exiled her. A sumptuous, saucy, and scandalous tale of love and vengeance in the mid-1950s, writer-director Jocelyn Moorhouse, creates the perfect blend of glamour and edginess, with Winslet as the ultimate femme-fatale – she’s Clint Eastwood meets Rita Hayworth. Not yet rated. 118 minutes

Single tickets for individual films are available, in advance, in our Gallery Shop – $13 each. Tickets may be available at our table in the Galaxy foyer before each screening.

Love & Friendship 1

Monday October 24 at 2pm. 4:30pm & 7:15pm

LOVE & FRIENDSHIP

Adapted from Jane Austen’s long-unpublished epistolary novella Lady Susan, writer-director Whit Stillman’s film is a sharp-tongued and riotously funny examination of 18th-century polite society. Stillman creates a period piece whose spirit is unmistakably modern. Brilliantly played by Kate Beckinsale, Lady Susan is an Austen heroine to rival Elizabeth Bennett and Emma Woodhouse. A smart, fun and scruple-free romp.  PG  92 minutes

Single tickets for individual films are available, in advance, in our Gallery Shop – $13 each. Tickets may be available at our table in the Galaxy foyer before each screening.

Gallery Night at the Movies, as a member of Film Circuit and under the banner of TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival), provides area filmgoers with transformative experiences through Canadian and international, independent films that we would otherwise not have the opportunity to see in our region.

Introduced to Owen Sound by the Gallery in 1996 as a fundraising project, Gallery Night at the Movies has expanded to three different screening times. The success of Gallery Night at the Movies has launched companion programs such as Owen Sound’s Reel Festival held every winter. The proceeds from this endeavour go back to the Gallery to enhance our arts programming in the region.

Gallery Night at the Movies gratefully acknowledges our partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF, and its sponsors and supporters. For more information about Film Circuit and to view a full list of their sponsors and supporters, please visit tiff.net/filmcircuit.

 

 

OWEN SOUND’S REEL FESTIVAL

 

February 24-26, 2017 at the Roxy

SAVE THE DATE!

 

 

The Tom Thomson Art Gallery has been presenting independent, alternative film programming to area cinephiles since 1996 with its Gallery Night at the Movies series. The Reel Festival, an off-shoot of that successful monthly programme, has provided local film-lovers with a winter weekend reprieve since 2003. The 15th Owen Sound’s Reel Festival will take place Friday February 24 to Sunday February 26, 2017.

Affiliated with the Toronto International Film Festival and a member of their Film Circuit, the weekend festival runs over 3 days and features 7 films highlighting the best of Canadian, international, and foreign films of the season. Presented at the historic Roxy Theatre in downtown Owen Sound, the Reel Festival promises to be one amazing weekend.
