Walk Hard: The
Dewey Cox Story


14A
(sexual content; nudity; drug use)
1 hour 36 minutes

Writer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) pokes fun at musical biopics in this comedy starring John C. Reilly (Talledega Nights, A Prairie Home Companion, Oscar nominee for Chicago) as a larger-than-life singer/songwriter with an up-and-down career.

"Not since This is Spinal Tap have I had such a good time watching amiable idiocy stumble on toward uncertain glory"
Richard Schickel
Time

"A pitch-perfect musical comedy that at long last moves the talented John C. Reilly up the billing ladder from second banana to top banana"
Michael Rechtshaffen
Hollywood Reporter

"a smarty-pants satire that mocks and embraces almost every cliché in the biography playbook"
Manohla Dargis
New York Times

"For pure, uncomplicated enjoyment, it's the movie to see right now"
Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle

"a comedy that doubles as obscene film criticism"
Wesley Morris
Boston Globe

"This gleeful skewering of American popular music works because of the talents of director Jake Kasdan and a cast led by John C. Reilly"
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times

"Strums the genre for considerable laughs, with John C. Reilly playing the title balladeer from teen to senior citizen"
Brian Lowry
Variety

Across the Universe

PG
(violence; nudity; coarse language)
2 hours 13 minutes

From director Julie Taymor (Frida, Titus, Broadway's The Lion King) romantic musical infused with Beatles songs and set amid the turbulent years of 1960s antiwar protest, mind exploration and rock and roll. Starring Evan Rachel Wood and Jim Sturgess, with Eddie Izzard, Salma Hayek and Bono.

"bold, beautiful, visually enchanting musical"
Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

"a strange, nostalgic, suitably outrageous ode to a very real revolution in consciousness"
William Arnold
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"All you need is love -- for the Beatles, for psychedelic visuals, for ideas about being young in the '60s -- to fully enjoy Across the Universe."
Justin Chang
Variety

"Across the Universe captured my heart, and I realized that falling in love with a movie is like falling in love with another person. Imperfections, however glaring, become endearing quirks once you've tumbled."
Stephen Holden
New York Times

"Although her movie is certainly unique, Taymor clearly owes much to Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge. Universe is also an intensely visual experience, and that's where Taymor excels... If you're a Beatles fan who's not offended by people taking serious liberties with the arrangements of your favorite songs, the unrepentantly exuberant and seriously tuneful Across the Universe is pretty much a sure thing."
Jessica Reaves
Chicago Tribune

LOCATION

The Hollywood Theatre is located at 3123 West Broadway, in the heart of Vancouver's Kitsilano neighbourhood. The cross street is Balaclava. For those of you who know where the Kits restaurants are, we're in the same block as Elwood's, The Copper Tank, and the Fringe Cafe.

PARKING

There is plenty of street parking in this busy neighbourhood shopping and dining area, but be aware that some of the side streets have restrictions (eg. residents only) -- be sure to read the signs.  (And don't park in the passenger zone out front - you'll be ticketed and towed!)

BUS ROUTES

Bus routes servicing this part of Broadway are the #9 (westbound goes to UBC or sometimes just Alma or Blanca, eastbound usually goes as far as Broadway Station or sometimes Boundary) and #17 (westbound goes to UBC, eastbound goes to Downtown.) There's a westbound stop just outside the Hollywood and eastbound the nearest stop is across the street on the east side of Balaclava. The speedy #99 B-line express bus stops 6 blocks west at Alma or 4 blocks east at MacDonald.
