The Pitch (April 29 - May 5)

Jason Asbell
April 26, 2022
A way out west there was a fella, fella I want to tell you about, fella by the name of Jason Asbell. I only mention it 'cause some- times there's a man--I won't say a hee-ro, 'cause what's a hee-ro?--but sometimes there's a man. And I'm talkin' about Jason here-- sometimes there's a man who, wal, he's the man for his time'n place, he fits right in there--and that's Jason, the Programming Director of The Civic Theatre. . . sometimes there's a man. Wal, I lost m'train of thought here. But--aw hell, I done innerduced him enough.

Dip your toe in the multi-verse with this week’s indie darling, ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’, before cannonballing in with ‘Dr. Strange’ up next.  And on the split, lose yourself in ‘The Lost City’, before you lose your mind in ‘The Multi-Verse of Madness’ starting next week.  And while we are still in this week and in this universe, also check-out the latest from the Malayalam franchise with ‘CBI 5: The Brain’, on Monday.  

And finally, The year is 2025 and Eastern Ukraine exists in the postwar aftermath of a full-scale border war against Russia.  This is the setting of the remarkably prescient 2019 film, Atlantis, by Ukraine director, Valentyn Vasyanovych. Proceeds from this screening will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal. - Wed. May 4th.
