JCCV FILM NIGHT

Monday, April 24th at 7:00 pm

The JCCV Film Night Crew Announces April’s Screening of

THE WICKER MAN

Starring: Edward Woodward, Britt Ekland, Christopher Lee. Release date 1973.

When a young girl mysteriously vanishes, Police Sergeant Howie travels to a remote Scottish Island to investigate. But the seemingly quiet community is not as it appears as the detective uncovers a secretive pagan society led by the strange Lord Summerisle.

While the townsfolk tempt and threaten him with bizarre rituals and wanton lust, Howie must race to discover the truth behind the girl’s disappearance before his clash with Lord Summerisle builds to a terrifying conclusion…one that has cemented this cult shocker as a modern horror masterpiece.

On the BBC list of the best 100 British films.

Please join us for this unusual film on April 24th at 7:00 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm.

Please join us for a fun evening of cinema…schmoozing…discussing and generally having a good time! State of the Art projection, large screen & great sound!

Snacks and cold drinks included in the $10 price of admission.

Always a classic cartoon and newsreel prior to the feature!

Music can name the unnamable and communicate the unknowable.” – Leonard Bernstein.

JCCV Film Night on Monday, March 27th

JCCV FILM NIGHT

Monday, March 27th at 7:00 pm

 Announcing the triumphal return of Victoria’s all time favourite movie:

 THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY


From South Africa’s filmmaker Jamie Uys. From a meager budget of 5 million dollars this original and thought-provoking comedy went on to delight audiences world wide.

Xi, a Kalahari bushman, takes it upon himself to return an unwanted coke bottle to the Gods. On his journey he encounters a lovelorn micro-biologist, a Johannesburg school teacher newly installed in a small jungle village, and a band of terrorists bent on overthrowing the government of the day. All are enmeshed in a plot so insane, it could only happen in the “civilized” world!

The gods must be crazy but maybe we are even crazier!

Please join us for a fun evening of cinema…schmoozing…discussing and generally having a good time! State of the Art projection on the new large screen & great sound system!

Popcorn and cold drinks included in the $10 price of admission.

Always a classic cartoon or two prior to the feature! Doors open at 6:30 PM.

Food For Thought Luncheon on Monday, March 20th

Edith Piaf, the Parisian Sparrow

edith-piaf-image

Edith Piaf is a cultural icon, in France and beyond. She is remembered for her songs, but also for her look (that launched a fashion) and for the symbolic dimension of her love affairs. What does she represent? What are the salient elements of her life that became a legend? The talk will retrace the life and songs of Edith Piaf, as well as emphasize the reasons of her enduring popularity, attested by an ever-flowered tombstone.

Our speaker, Dr. Hélène Cazes, a specialist of humanism, is a professor at the Department of French and the director of the Program of Medieval Studies. She has been awarded the Award of Excellence in Research (Uvic, Humanities, 2013) as well as the University of Victoria Leadership Award for her work on humanism and its dissemination. She is currently working on cultural icons.

When:  Monday, March 20th from 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm.

Where:  Jewish Community Centre of Victoria, 3636 Shelbourne St.

Sit down luncheon includes coffee or tea and dessert. Cost is $12.00.

Call or email the JCCV at 250-477-7185 or jccv@telus.net to reserve.
