I Love Nelson http://ilovenelson.com Nelson's Community Website Wed, 26 Nov 2014 01:51:09 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0.1 NelsonSPCA – Oscar – Nov 19 2014 http://ilovenelson.com/nelsonspca-oscar-nov-19-2014/ http://ilovenelson.com/nelsonspca-oscar-nov-19-2014/#respond Tue, 25 Nov 2014 00:32:24 +0000 http://ilovenelson.com/?p=200703 OscarHello, my name is Oscar. I’m a long term resident of the Nelson branch, since September 2013 I’ve been patiently waiting for my forever home. It has not been an easy year from me, 2013 was kind of rough. First I found myself here at the shelter, them sick with a food allergy and having to frequently visit the vet. But the nice people here found the problem and I have they changed my diet to a hypoallergenic food (which isn’t all that expensive) and finally I made a full recovery. If you have no other animals, I really prefer being alone with you, come down for a visit I’m sure I’ll win you over with my talkativeness and feisty personality.

Films at the Nelson Civic Theatre Nov 7- Nov 13 – 2014 http://ilovenelson.com/films-at-the-nelson-civic-theatre-nov-7-nov-13-2014/ http://ilovenelson.com/films-at-the-nelson-civic-theatre-nov-7-nov-13-2014/#respond Wed, 05 Nov 2014 00:50:20 +0000 http://ilovenelson.com/?p=193026 The odds are definitely forever in the Civic’s favour for having something just right for you this November.

The Civic Theatre has confirmed the whole month, the guess work is gone and the product is golden.

We start the Nov. 7th week off with the much buzzed about Fury (14A).  The Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and his five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.  On the split we have The Skeleton Twins (PG),  a beautiful mix of heartbreak and humour starring Kristen Wigg and Bill Hader.

On Monday, Nov. 10th the Civic converts into the famous Globe Theatre for a live on screen presentation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

Days of My Youth, Wed. Nov 12th reminds us of that special feeling of our very first time on skis and proves that skiing can keep you feeling young for a lifetime.

For our Nov. 13th Thursday film, we have secured the much anticipated and ridiculously well received Love is Strange (PG). After nearly four decades together, Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) finally tie the knot in an idyllic wedding ceremony in lower Manhattan. But when George loses his job soon after, the couple must sell their apartment and – victims of the relentless New York City real estate market – temporarily live apart until they can find an affordable new home.

Screening in Nelson on the beginning of its second week of it’s North American opening, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (PG) takes off Nov. 14th.  There is definitely no need to leave town when you can go to the stars in the comfort of your local cinema.

Nov. 21st? I need only to say this one phrase… The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1. (PG)  on the break!!!

And for the finale of the month, the 20-year wait for the sequel of the brand of humour only Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels can deliver comes to Nelson on Nov. 28th.  Dumb and Dumber To (PG) opens here on the beginning of its 3rd week, but as the booking is confirmed and you know it is coming, it would be dumb to go anywhere else other than your own community cinema.

I came to the Nelson SPCA after being found abandoned on the side of the highway. I love to go for runs, but still getting used to walking on a leash. I would be better suited with an active and confident guardian, I need some obedience training, I’m still in puppy mode. I love being around people so that causes me to display signs of stress and anxiety when I’m left alone. According to the nice people here if you want to adopt me you must understand my behavior and have the time, confidence and patience to work with me, I need to feel comfortable being left on my own. I do get along well with other dogs, we keep each other company when left alone. If you think I’m your guy come meet me at the Nelson SPCA, or call (250)352-7178 for more information about him.

Finally, the candidates will have an opportunity share their vision for change and commitment.

Rona Park, Chair of SPAN, will moderate the event. “This forum is intended to ensure that whoever is elected will be fully informed of the issues facing our community,” she said. “We are looking forward to hearing citizen concerns and the candidates’ responses. We hope to make social issues a key election issue.’

Horror Takes Over: Zombies in Nelson http://ilovenelson.com/horror-takes-over-zombies-in-nelson/ http://ilovenelson.com/horror-takes-over-zombies-in-nelson/#respond Mon, 20 Oct 2014 23:31:16 +0000 http://ilovenelson.com/?p=188408 HORROR TAKES OVER: Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller inFrankenstein; Downtown Zombie Walk; the 30th Anniversary ofGhostbusters, and Best Films of Austin’s Fantastic Fest, all at The Civic this month

 

unnamed (1)Nelson, BC – October 20, 2014 | The Undead are alive and well at Nelson’s Civic Theatre this month, where a terrifying array of monster and zombie experiences will lead up to Halloween.

 

October 22 and 23, The Civic will screen National Theatre Live’s Frankenstein, starring Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Star Trek Into Darkness) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Transpotting) swapping the roles of doctor and creation.  Shows start both nights at 7:00pm.  Tickets can be purchased separately or in a package for patrons who wish to see both.unnamed (2)

 

***

 

On the heels of Austin’s Fantastic Fest—the biggest Horror and Fantasy film festival in North America—we have secured two of the winners not shown outside of the festival circuit until now:

 

The Tale of Princess Kaguya (Audience Award), with showtimes on October 24, 7:00pm (dubbed); October 26, 2:00pm (dubbed); October 28, 7:00pm (subtitles).

 

Dead Snow 2 (Best picture and best screenplay in the Gutbuster Comedy Feature category) screening on October 25, 9:00pm, and October 28, 9:40pm.

 

***

 

Watch out for Zombies on October 25 as they take over downtown in Nelson’s first Zombie Walk, organized by the Civic Theatre (NTCS).  Featuring a dearly-departed New Orleans Funeral Jazz Band (Rick Lingard and Mary Defeo, with the Oxygen Orchestar), all local undead and zombie fans are invited to join the walk.

 

For the near-dead, professional makeup artists will be in the Civic Theatre Lobby from 12:00-2:00pm to help you blend in (small fee to cover supplies). Please arrive early for makeup services.

 

The walk starts in front of the Civic Theatre at 2:00pm and will make its way through the downtown core, returning full circle in time for a FREE classic zombie film at 4:00pm at the Civic Theatre.  All—dead and living—are welcome to attend.

 

***

 

Finally, on October 27 at 7:30pm, the Civic is pleased to offer a real treat for Member Monday: we will be showing the 30th Anniversary restoration of Ghostbusters.

 

Other screenings in October also include:

October 24, 9:40pm    Borgman

October 26, 7:30pm    Only Lovers Left Alive

October 29, 7:00pm    Bohemian Rhapsody: Queen Live in Budapest

(all Eastern Block Rockers Welcome)

October 30, 7:30pm    Borgman

 

See civictheatre.ca for details. 

 

Nelson Civic Theatre Society (NCTS) was formed in 2012 to save and restore Nelson’s Civic Theatre, which showed films from 1938 until the late 2000s.  Today the Civic Theatre presents a wide variety of film screenings for local audiences, from new releases to indie flicks.
