I’d Like To Thank The Academy...

by Derek Martin

On September 28, 1993, City Cinema screened its first movie for the public, Strictly Ballroom. Fast-forward some 1, 700 movies and it’s our 20th anniversary! Check our listings for some special events. We’ll be reprising Food & Film with the appropriately named Haute Cuisine—see the movie, then enjoy a meal based on the film. For some fun around Halloween we’ll have The Movie Repairmen fix Ato

Our Top 20 Films by Attendance

I love documentaries but they drive me crazy—they are the most unpredictable genre to program. The hugely entertaining Academy Award winner Man On Wire was one of the most acclaimed films of its year. It is still the second-highest rated film (of any type) on Rotten Tomatoes. Yet it ranks 1,446 on our list—we c

Stay with the Program
by Derek Martin

City Cinema

Congratulations to The Buzz on 20 years of terrific coverage of Arts & Culture on P.E.I.! I’m usually too busy planning future programmes to spend much time looking back, but anniversaries inevitably inspire a trip to the memory bank.

I’ve written here before about being a fan of Peter’s Sunday Cinema, volunteering at his offshoot Off The Wall Video, and our startup of

City Cinema undergoes transformation to digital projection

by Derek Martin

As many of you have read here, City Cinema is undergoing a dual transformation—from a private company to a community-owned non-profit, and from running 35mm film to a 2K digital projection system. The changes won’t make much difference for the average trip to the movies, but digital projection will have some advantages, and the

The Charlottetown Film Society incorporated to run cinema

by Derek Martin

It doesn’t seem that long since City Cinema opened in September 1993, but we have customers now whose parents started dating there! It has been a terrific adventure so far—on top of the over 1,600 films we’ve shown in our regular schedule we have done hundreds of screenings for non-profit and private groups, hosted film festivals and f

A report from the Toronto International Film Festival

by Derek Martin

This year there were 349 films at that great movie buffet, The Toronto International Film Festival. I got my guide, about the size of the PEI phone book, a couple of days before leaving, and drew up a want-to-see list of about 60. I managed 31, less than ten percent of the menu, but still a tasty sampling. Here are some notes on

City Cinema owner reports on the Toronto International Film Festival

by Derek Martin

I imagine a minister would need, from time to time, to get away from his responsibilities and re-experience the pleasures of simply taking in a service in a church not his own. That's how I felt on my break from City Cinema to attend this year's Toronto International Film Festival in September. I saw 25 movies in

Millennial Hoopla
The owner of Charlottetown's City Cinema shares his insights

by Derek Martin

While I'm more than happy to have made it to the odometer rollover that is New Year's 2000, I think I share the feeling of a lot of people that it is not as significant as media and advertisers would have us believe. History as taught in high school would be a lot easier if important events stuck to round numbered years,

Profile: Scott Purdy

by Derek Martin

Scott Purdy's name is one that you'll see if you stay for the credits at the movies, As a re-recording mixer, he's one of the last people to work on a film before it gets printed and handed over to the theatre. He's just received his second Genie nomination, for his work on Lilies (the first was for Johnny Mnemonic). I had called him last winter for some sound
