The Amazing Acro-Cats

October 7-9, 2022 (Cinema)

This troupe of trained domestic house cats, all former orphans, rescues, and strays, give a one-of-a-kind “purrformance” that includes cats riding skateboards, jumping through hoops, ringing bells, balancing on balls and performing other feats of agility and entertainment. The show finale is the only all-cat band in the world: Tuna and the Rock Cats. The Rock Cats play guitar, drums and piano, and they’ve recently been joined by the Jazz Cats on saxophone, trumpet and clarinet.

Cirque Du Cambodia

Wednesday, November 9 at 7:30 pm (Cinema)

This documentary follows two teenagers, Sopha Nem and Dina Sok, over an eight-year period on an unlikely but fantastic journey. The two of them took part in a special circus training program in their village school and became top-notch performers. After watching a Cirque du Soleil video, they had a big dream: to become the first Cambodians to take the stage with the world-famous company. So, they moved to Montreal, where Cirque du Soleil is headquartered, to attend a top circus school after receiving scholarships to go.
