Brooklyn

June 14 @ 7:00PM

TIFF Tuesday - Films on the Scucog will be presenting Brooklyn!!  

Set in 1951 and 1952, Brooklyn tells the story of a young Irish woman's immigration to Brooklyn, New York, where she quickly falls into a romance. When her past catches up with her, however, she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within them for her.
 
Brooklyn premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival to critical acclaim and a “rapturous standing ovation”, and has since won accolades internationally.  The film was nominated for three Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay.  The “Rotten Tomatoes” review website's critical consensus reads, "Brooklyn buttresses outstanding performances from Saoirse Ronan and Emory Cohen with a rich period drama that tugs at the heartstrings as deftly as it satisfies the mind." 
 
Directed by John Crowley and written by Nick Hornby, based on Colm Tóibín's novel of the same name. The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emory Cohen, Domhnall Gleeson, Jim Broadbent, and Julie Walters. Brooklyn is rated PG.
     
Films on the Scugog is a registered TIFF Film Circuit member, and is a partnership between the Kawartha Art Gallery and the Academy Theatre. Our aim is to enhance the cultural experience in the City of Kawartha Lakes. We present a TIFF film on the second Tuesday each month from April to September. We are working collaboratively with our colleagues at Fenelon Falls, where Films by the Falls is a neighbouring TIFF Film Circuit member. Their TIFF screenings occur on the last Tuesday each month from September to May, excluding December.

Class of '59

October 28 @ 7:30PM

Tickets are $49.00 - Class of '59 - Public sale on May 17th at 10am.

Son of Rock’n’Roll Icon
 Joins Legends Tour… 
 
Bobby Brooks Wilson has been added to the Class of ’59 2016 touring cast. Wilson, for those that haven't had the privilege, is the quintessential Motown entertainer who has a way of becoming the undisputed hit of any musical production he is part of. And, with Lance Lipinsky and Jeff Giles on the same show… that is really saying something. Wilson’s story is even better…
               Bobby Brooks Wilson, known as Bobby Brooks back in the 1990's, broke into show business portraying Jackie Wilson in the original Waikiki production of “Legends in Concert.” He was discovered by a Legends in Concert talent scout who suggested he perform a tribute to Jackie Wilson because of his uncanny likeness to the 1950’s recording star. Audiences found him an unusually close natural look-alike, especially for a tribute artist, and he went on to international success portraying the legendary 1950's entertainer.
               Overcoming early foster care and personal tragedies that read like a work of fiction, Bobby Brooks never knew his father… much less that he was a famous father. Through various acts of fate, he finally met some of Jackie Wilson’s family members. After comparing family time-lines, it was discovered that Brooks could be the son of the late, great R&B recording artist Jackie Wilson. With the aid of one of Wilson's family members, it was officially confirmed through a DNA test that Jackie Wilson was indeed his biological father. The Wilson’s have since accepted Bobby as family and a new duet video featuring Bobby superimposed singing with his father is now being planned for the future.
               Buddy Holly and The Killer… will be playing guitar and piano, respectively, in the all-star Legends Band including “Big Bopper” on string bass plus guest performers… Young Elvis, Bill Haley, the Everly Brothers and introducing Bobby Brooks Wilson as Jackie Wilson and Sam Cook. 
              Don’t miss Class of ’59…  it’s a fabulous “oldies” rock’n’roll show… when the music was raw, pure and simple and played the way it’s supposed to be played… on tour in Canada during the fall of 2016.
