Happy Birthday To Me (J. Lee Thompson, 1981)

A popular but brain-damaged teen is killing off her clique in thrilling and inventive ways…OR IS SHE?

With the director of Cape Fear, the star of Little House on the Prairie in the lead, Hollywood legend Glenn Ford as a constipated shrink, and iconic skewer-through-the-mouth poster/box art, this is the ‘class act’ of all 80s Canadian slasher films. Slick and breezy, with a procession of memorable set pieces and devil-may-care bits of teen business.

It also offers a twist ending that has to be seen to be disbelieved.

It also also features one of the most profound concentrations of vaguely familiar Canadian character actors ever to slip into your local Cineplex.

And it’s also also also the ONLY film to feature all three of our national ‘scream queens’ of the era: Lesleh Donaldson, Lisa Langlois and Lenore Zann!

Keep Halloween alive with this creepy piece of work from the ghoulish minds of Cinepix – the finest exploitation film company ever to grace our blood-stained shores.

Opening Reception Saturday 7 November 2-4PM
On display until Friday 20 November

These images are most often a projection of memory, a memory that recalls the biological. They have taken up residence where the medical laboratorial self left off, or where research into human anatomy only exists now in the stacks. These drawings are meant to recall organic abstraction and the such-ness of biotic potential.

NAC supports working visual artists however we can; exhibit space, an expansive tool library, and workshops are all just some of the ways. However, we are aware of a need in our community that we haven’t yet been unable to answer–affordable studio space. We’d like to change that.

NAC has partnered with a cooperative downtown property owner with a St. Paul Street building that would make an ideal collective studio space for fifteen to twenty NAC member artists. The property owner’s willing to make some modifications of the space to suit artists’ needs, there are possibilities for a storefront retail component, and we’ve agreed that it’s in everyone’s best interest to set this up long-term.

NAC invites you to an open house on Tuesday 10 November. Check out the potential and possibilities for downtown shared studio space and get your name on the list to become one of the first tenants. Refreshments will be served.
