Reel Movie Mondays launches Retro Film Series at Carnival

Reel Movie Mondays program is ecstatic to be branching out and bringing some classic movies back to the big screen.

Organizers are excited to share the launch of their new Retro Movie Wednesdays series for the 2016/2017 year in addition to the regular Reel Movie Mondays series lineup.

On select Wednesday evenings this fall, organizers are bringing pre-1999 favourites to the big screen.

This year the volunteer selection committee chose prominent directors as our ‘theme’.

Folks will see films by Martin Scorsese, Tim Burton, James Cameron, Roman Polanski and more for the inaugural year. Since this is the first year up and running organizers are screening films that have been popular and well-known. As the seasons move forward they are looking to bring lesser known and even older films into the fold.

Retro Movie Wednesdays is a partnership between the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery and Carnival Cinemas.

All films will screen at 7 p.m. on select Wednesday nights at Carnival Cinemas.

Visit for more details and synopses of all films.

All film tickets are final sale, no refunds or exchanges. At the door ticket sales on film nights, from 6 to 7 p.m. in the lobby of Carnival Cinemas, are $15 each (no member/student rate or coupons).

The film selection committee spent countless hours discussing potential films to bring in, organizers say.

Their criteria includes films from 1920s-1999, films with cinematography that would look amazing on the big screen, available on DCP format and films that haven’t been on the big screen recently, etc.

During the fall, screenings we will run a ‘Viewer’s Choice’ contest to select our last film for the spring of 2017.

The retro film series launches on Oct. 5th with Aliens – directed by James Cameron followed by Edward Scissorhands on Oct. 19th – directed by Tim Burton.

On Nov. 2nd, they keep up the stylized filmmaking of Tim Burton with his take on Batman directed by Tim Burton.

All films are screened at Carnival Cinemas at 7 p.m..
