Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas – Why is The Grinch (Jim Carrey) such a grouch?

Stardust – Following his 1969 breakout success, “Space Oddity,” David Bowie (Johnny Flynn) has a number of singles that flop, leaving many to wonder if he’s just a one-hit wonder. When his 1970 album, The Man Who Sold the World, receives a lukewarm critical reception in England, Ron Oberman, a publicist at his American label suggests Bowie do a U.S. tour. Unfortunately, things don’t go well, but the tour has one positive outcome—it inspires Bowie to reinvent himself as Ziggy Stardust. Playing in Kingston, Regina and Saskatoon.

Zappa – With unfettered access to the Zappa family trust and all archival footage, this film explores the private life behind the mammoth musical career that never shied away from the political turbulence of its time. Featuring appearances by Frank’s widow Gail Zappa and several of Frank’s musical collaborators including Mike Keneally, Ian Underwood, Steve Vai, Pamela Des Barres, Bunk Gardner, David Harrington, Scott Thunes, Ruth Underwood, Ray White and others.
