**Plays for 2 weeks**

Paul Atreides continues his family's century-long journey to destroy the Emperor of the Known Universe. Crossing paths with Chani and the Fremen, they team up on a warpath of revenge for Paul’s family. Being the chosen one, Paul can see into the future, which shows him an unimaginable fate on the horizon. With the knowledge of an upcoming war, Paul and Chani have to strengthen their defences and win for their own people. Critics are already calling Dune: Part 2 a cinematic masterpiece. A jaw-dropping, edge-of-your-seat, breathtaking epic with stunning visuals and a hero’s journey at its heart.  With an all-star cast including, Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Charlotte Rampling and Christopher Walken.

500 DAYS IN

THE WILD

**AUDIENCE FAVORITE WINNER AT THE VICTOIA FILM FESTIVAL**

Award-winning director Dianne Whelan spent six years travelling the entire length of the Trans Canada trail. For a woman in her 50s who is not an athlete, it was sometimes gruelling, often exhilarating and always surprising. Disillusioned with the state of the world, she set out on a journey to look for different ways of caring for the land and each other. Boasting gorgeous cinematography, an awesome soundtrack, and a moving story of discovery, it’s easy to see why this documentary won the Audience Favorite at the 2024 Victoria Film Festival.

Rated PG (coarse lang, nudity, sexual content) 2hrs5

THE TASTE OF THINGS

**AN AUDIENCE FAVORITE FROM THE VICTOIA FILM FESTIVAL**

France, 1885. Talented cook Eugenie has worked for the preeminent gourmet Dodin Bouffant for the last two decades. Their mutual admiration turns into a romance, and gives rise to dishes, one more delicious than the next, that confound even the world’s most illustrious chefs.  But Eugenie is fond of her freedom and has turned down Dodin's many proposals of marriage, so he decides to do something he has never done before: cook for her. Starring the always brilliant Juliette Binoche (The English Patient, Chocolat), The Taste of Things is an achingly romantic, charming, soulful film. A love letter to food and cooking, and one of the loveliest experiences you’ll ever have in a movie theater this year. In French with English subtitles   Rated G (nudity) 2hrs15

**Plays for 2 weeks**

After defeating world-class villains with his unmatched courage and mad martial arts skills, Po, the Dragon Warrior, is tapped to become the Spiritual Leader of the Valley of Peace.

OPPENHEIMER

**13 Oscar nominations & FAVORITE TO WIN BEST PICTURE**

The film centers around J. Robert Oppenheimer, the “father of the atomic bomb” who led the United States' development of the first nuclear weapons during World War II. Director Christopher Nolan thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of the enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it.  Oppenheimer is truly a spectacular achievement; an epic historical drama with incredible storytelling, remarkable visuals and Oscar-worthy performances from Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh and Matt Damon.

Rated 14A (sexually suggestive scenes, nudity) 3hrs

THE ZONE OF INTEREST

**5 Oscar nominations & FAVORITE TO WIN BEST INTERNATIONAL FILM**

Rudolf Höss, the commandant of Auschwitz, lives with his wife Hedwig and four children in a house with a large garden, right next to the camp. As they work and play in the garden, sounds can be heard coming from the concentration camp as trains arrive, shots ring out, and Nazis shout orders. However, nothing perturbs the German family as they strive to build a dream life. Starring Sandra Hüller (last seen in Anatomy of a Fall), The Zone of Interest is one of 2023’s most significant cinematic achievements. It’s a film that offers powerful commentary on humanity’s capacity for willful ignorance and complicity in evil. Compelling and chilling, The Zone of Interest delivers a masterpiece and a conversation starter all in one.  Rated PG 1hr45
