My evening at the Revue by George Gardiner http://revuecinema.net/posts/my-evening-at-the-revue/ http://revuecinema.net/posts/my-evening-at-the-revue/#respond Sat, 16 Dec 2017 15:55:51 +0000 http://revuecinema.net/?p=3471 (more...)]]>

 

What a great evening at the Revue Cinema last night.  I was looking forward to seeing The Thin Man, a film made in the 30’s and one I’d never seen.

To my surprise the theatre was almost sold out and no wonder.  A woman who has studied the history of alcohol give us the background on prohibition and its eventual repeal in the U.S. (  At the time booze consumption was about 3 times what it is today ).  She went on to describe the role drinks played in the movie.  It was a rare moment when Nick and Nora didn’t have a glass in their hands.

The movie itself was a real treat.  Great dialogue and snappy repartee provided a super story and lots of laughs.

All told, an evening that exceeded expectations!

George Gardiner

Thanks for Joining Us for Tracing The Steps – Our Revue Fundraiser http://revuecinema.net/posts/thanks-for-joining-us-for-tracing-the-steps-fundraiser/ Sat, 18 Nov 2017 22:23:38 +0000 http://revuecinema.net/?p=3129 (more...)]]>  

Thank you to everyone who joined us for last night’s Revue Fundraiser Tracing The Steps Celebrating Les Ballets Russes & The Nijinskys. It was an enlightening, warm and enjoyable community evening.

As Toronto gets ready for Nijinsky, National Ballet of Canada acclaimed ballet, The Revue, brought together Toronto based artists who have explored the legend behind the talent and charisma of Vaslav Nijinsky and Les Ballets Russes. The evening featured two insightful talks by Toronto novelist, Eva Stachniak, whose latest historical novel The Chosen Maiden (Doubleday, Canada) tells the story of Vaslav Nijinsky and his sister Bronislava, and the National Ballet of Canada’s principal dancer Piotr Stanczyk who provided an insider’s perspective on the upcoming production of Nijinsky, in which he dances the role of Diaghilev.

It is not often that significant Toronto institutions of performing arts and literature work together to raise money to support a local community cultural centre – but we are very grateful they did.

We were honoured to have been a part of this unique collaboration by four venerable and generous arts organizations, who came together to create this exciting evening. We are incredibly grateful for the support of Tracing The Steps sponsors; Eva Stachniak,The National Ballet of Canada, The Pia Bouman School For Ballet and Creative Movement and Penguin Random House Canada and for the contributions of all the guests who joined us. The much-needed money raised, over $5,000, will support the ongoing operations and programming of the Revue.

Aileen MacDonald, Executive Director, Revue Cinema.
