Grab hold of your work stations! All members are encouraged to attend our year in review. Come witness just how far we’ve had our heads up our filing cabinet. Highlights include power point (with animations), motions to vote on, an election of board directors, and everyone’s favourite, adjournment. A bag of chips has been passed off as a contribution to the buffet in the past, but some members actually try.


Saturday nights were made for music, from rock ‘n’ roll to jazz and all the beats in between. Bring your eyes and your ears to THE FILM HOUSE Saturday nights at 9:30PM for music docs, music themed films, and musicals all presented with the extraordinary fidelity of THE FILM HOUSE’s state-of-the-art 7.1 sound system–the first of its kind installed in Canada! Music is at the heart of life. These movies are selected from across genres and time periods to present the best films focused on melody, rhythm, and groove. Come to THE FILM HOUSE, settle in, and let film take you on a musical journey to concerts, recording sessions, and behind-the-scenes glimpses into the world of music.

Don’t Look Back was filmed during a three week concert tour of England in the spring of 1965. More than a view of an extraordinary concert tour, Don’t Look Back is an intimate portrait of one of the most influential songwriters of our times.

Much of the film affects an air of being unplanned, and one has the sensation at times of being allowed to peep on the private lives of public idols. There is lots of uninhibited hard talk.

– Donal J. Henahan, The New York Times

USA 1970. Directed by Albert Maysles, David Maysles, & Charlotte Zwerin. 91 min. PG

Featuring the original rude boys of British rock, The Rolling Stones, this spectacular documentary features a tour of America that culminates in a death at Altamont. This breathtaking film is critically acclaimed (100% on Rotten Tomatoes) and provides insight into the the whirlwind world of the Rolling Stones on tour at the height of their fame.

The Rolling Stones are here, pursuing their grail, live on film, dead on film, drenched in the boreal red (read “rage”) of a portable spotlight. “Gonna get us a little satisfaction,” sings Mick Jagger and generations scream their ecstasy.

– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
