Music!

Our summer cycle will be festive or not. Sound and image, song and dance, instrument and breathing, strings and gestures: so many possible combinations to express what cinema and music can achieve and express together. Musicals, concert films, catchy music. Jazz, classical, contemporary, disco, punk... Revolt and enchantment, distress and emphasis, joy and rhythm, melancholy and bass, laughter and stridency: diverse expressions characterizing cinema and music's historical alliance, will definitely make us fly, dream, dance!

From the 30's to the present day and across all possible genres, this cycle aims to open our minds at a time when we most need it. The first week of July will be an eventful one, as the cycle will open with several evenings in cabaret mode, where we will present for the first time concert films produced in Quebec during the confinement, with the participation of major artists of the current music scene: Klô Pelgag, Marie Davidson and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

After 40 Years, Rocky Horror Has Become Mainstream

The Atlantic

“I think it has a large appeal because ... people are accepted as they are: fabulous, regardless of gender or sexuality or race or body type,” de Ugarte says. “I love Rocky because it lets me and everyone around me be uninhibited and fly our freak flag, and not be ashamed to be ridiculous.” It’s that mantra that has surely contributed to the lasting appeal of a long-beloved phenomenon: years ahead of its time, but now appreciated by more than its creators could ever have dreamed.
