Art – Film - Music
 Showing in the Peggy Dow Theatre for one night only
This event is not suitable for children.

Mr. Papp considers this event as his “coming out” in the KW artist community.  Adding some sizzle to event, he is bringing his model / celebrity star, Nikki du Plessis - all the way from South Africa. Nikki will be at the Tropic Gallery September 5, 6, and 7 evenings. Come meet this stunningly beautiful creature who spent 30 days doing something you would be hard pressed to believe.
The event is open to the public but remember the Peggy Dow theatre is small so seating will be limited.

KW artist / filmmaker Edmund B. Papp is premiering The Sea Siren, a highly evocative multi-media art show at the Tropic Gallery… September 1 – 30.

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS with an unbelievable cast

Starring Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Christopher Plummer, Toni Collette, & Jean Reno

Hector (Simon Pegg) is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. As he tells his girlfriend, Clara (Rosamund Pike), he feels like a fraud: he hasn't really tasted life, and yet he's offering advice to patients who are just not getting any happier. So Hector decides to break out of his deluded and routine driven life. Armed with buckets of courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness. And so begins a larger than life adventure with riotously funny results. Based on the world-wide best-selling novel of the same name, Hector and the Search for Happiness is a rich, exhilarating, and hilarious tale from director Peter Chelsom, starring Simon Pegg, Toni Collette, Rosamund Pike, Stellan Skarsgard, Jean Reno and Christopher Plummer.

.Oscar® winner Juliet Binocheand her new film 1,000 TIMES GOODNIGHT

1,000 TIMES GOODNIGHT. Rebecca (Juliette Binoche) is one of world's top war photojournalists, capturing dangerous and chilling images in the most dire landscapes, all in an effort to shed light on the real cost of modern war. But she's also a wife and mother, leaving behind a husband and two young daughters every time she travels to a new combat zone. After a near-death experience chronicling the ritual of a female suicide bomber, husband Marcus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) levels an ultimatum: give up the dangerous profession or lose the family she counts on being there when she returns from each assignment. Yet the conviction that her photos can make a difference keeps pulling at Rebecca's  resolve, making it difficult for her to walk away entirely. With an offer to photograph a refugee camp in Kenya, a place allegedly so safe that  daughter Steph (Lauryn Canny) is allowed to join her, Rebecca comes face to face with just how much she risks each time she steps back into the fray.
