Upcoming January Events: RDC’s School of Creative Arts
Red Deer, January 3, 2018 – Red Deer College invites central Albertans to join us as the School of Creative Arts brings creativity to life throughout an exciting season of diverse performances, concerts, screenings and exhibitions. RDC’s talented students, instructors, staff and special guests will present the following events throughout the month of January:
Movies Worth Watching Series
Willow (1988) 30th Anniversary Event
January 11 & 12 at 7pm – admission $5 – rating PG
This epic Lucas film fantasy serves up enough magical adventure to satisfy fans of the genre, though it treads familiar territory. With abundant parallels to Star Wars, the story (by George Lucas) follows the exploits of the little farmer Willow (Warwick Davis), an aspiring sorcerer appointed to deliver an infant princess from the evil queen (Jean Marsh) to whom the child is a crucial threat. Val Kilmer plays the warrior who joins Willow’s campaign with the evil queen’s daughter (Joanne Whalley, who later married Kilmer). Impressive production values, stunning locations (in England, Wales, and New Zealand) and dazzling special effects energize the routine fantasy plot, which alternates between rousing action and cute sentiment while failing to engage the viewer’s emotions.
Movies Worth Watching brings a variety of classic films that best viewed on the BIG screen. Join us to see the best Hollywood has to offer. Every screening is preceded by an MPA student film that we know you will love. For detailed information visit rdc.ab.ca/showtime.
A Frosty Affair (2015)
January 26 & 27 Welikoklad Event Centre Cinema at 7:00 pm – Admission by donation
A Frosty Affair is not the latest Canadian weather forecast, but the title of the newest feature film shot in Edmonton by RDC Alumni.
