Nonfiction filmmaker Grant Baldwin’s Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story (2014) is a fantastic new documentary that has the potential to dramatically alter the way in which people approach food and its waste. This piece offers an eye-opening look at a very serious matter, addressing a problem many may be unaware even exists, and then provides some wholly possible solutions and simple suggestions for improvement.

INTERSTELLAR

In the not-too-distant future there is widespread famine; armies have been disbanded and life has regressed into farm-based economies. The Earth's atmosphere has become poor in oxygen, and soon global starvation will give way to global asphyxiation. Meantime, a team of explorers undertakes the most important mission in human history; traveling beyond this galaxy to discover whether mankind has a future. Directed the visionary Christopher Nolan, Interstellar is one of the most highly-anticipated films of the year.  Thrilling, thought-provoking and vigorously entertaining, Interstellar will stand as one of the best movie-going experiences you have this year! Starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine.  Rated PG (coarse lang.) 2hrs50

 

BIG HERO 6

Big Hero 6 is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius-thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion-a robot named Baymax to solve the mystery.  Exciting and hilarious and sweet and sharp, Big Hero 6 is one of the best anitmated films of the year.  Full of humour and heart for people of all ages!   Rated G (violence) 1hr50

Mockingjay Part 1

In the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, Peeta has been captured by President Snow and taken prisoner in the Capitol.  Meanwhile, Katniss Everdeen reluctantly agrees to act as "the Mockingjay"—a poster child for the rebellion spearheaded by District 13.  She has one stipulation however - that District 13's President Alma Coin promises immunity to all of the past Hunger Games tributes, including Peeta, and to give Katniss the right to personally kill President Snow once he is captured.  Mockingjay Part 1 is an compelling piece of entertainment that is filled with tension, thrills, heart and commanding performances Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutchinson, Liam Hemsworth, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Donald Sutherland.                                            Rated PG (violence) 2hrs

Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a good heart.  St. Vincent is a funny, charming and feel-good movie featuring a hilarious and touching performance by Bill Murray.  Also starring Melissa McCarthy and Naomi Watts.

When down-and-out New Yorker Mathias inherits an apartment in Paris from his estranged father, he uses his last penny to travel to France with the intent of selling his new property, then returning home. He runs into a problem when he finds Mathilde, a refined old lady, living there with her protective daughter Chloe and they have no intention of leaving. Starring the incomparable Maggie Smith along with Kevin Kline and Kristin Scott Thomas, My Old Lady is an unabashedly old-fashioned crowd-pleaser that explores guilty secrets, hidden lives and family ghosts.

Rated PG (sexual lang.) 1hr50

BEST OF ME

Dawson and Amanda are two former high school sweethearts who find themselves reunited after 20 years apart, when they return to their small town for the funeral of a beloved friend.

Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.

Metropolitan Opera Clears Last Major Hurdle in Labor Talks

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/21/arts/music/metropolitan-opera-labor-talks.html

The Metropolitan Opera and the union representing its stage hands reached a contract deal early Wednesday morning, clearing the last major hurdle before the company could go ahead with its coming season of operas featuring jealous lovers, dying sopranos, and a fellow named Figaro — both before and after his marriage.

The Met’s management, whose demand for concessions sparked the worst labor strife at the opera house in decades, abandoned its threat to lock out workers just over a month before the opening of the opera season once the deal was struck. The agreement was reached at about 3:15 a.m., following a marathon bargaining session extended past a deadline of midnight Tuesday.

The Met said that the agreement prevented “a potential labor crisis at the nation’s largest performing arts organization.” It added that “preseason rehearsals and preparations for the 2014-15 season will continue without interruption.
