I don’t know if that’s its official title or not, but April 3, 10, 17 and 24 the RPL Theatre is offering free screenings of three documentaries and one feature film that have a strong Canadian music focus. So with the Juno Awards in Regina and Moose Jaw April 15-21, there’s a definite tie-in. Here’s a breakdown:
April 3 at 6:45 p.m. it’s Neil Young: Heart of Gold (2006). The feature is This Movie Is Broken (2010) which was shot in Toronto and revolves around a big outdoor concert by Broken Social Scene. It goes April 10 at 7 p.m. April 17 at 7 p.m. it’s Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage (2010). Then on April 24 at 6:30 p.m. it’s Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man (2006).
And as an added bonus, this weekend as part of its regular rep program (which has a modest admission charge) the RPL is screening Bruce Cockburn: Pacing the Cage (2012). It goes April 4 at 9 p.m. and April 5 at 7 p.m.
Here’s the trailer for This Movie Is Broken:
