cinéSARNIA Celebrates

20 Years



cinéSARNIA invites its subscriber members to help celebrate 20 years of film enjoyment.  Over the last two decades we have shown almost 200 films to an average subscriber base of 500 viewers per year and in addition to many rush viewers from the community.  The committee members are proud to have been a part of such a successful venture and look forward to the celebration weekend in April, 2015.  We hope that you will join us for a mini-festival and much more.

Critical Notes

From Oscar (R) nominated and Emmy award-winning filmmakers, RED ARMY is a feature documentary about the Soviet Union and the most successful dynasty in sports history: the Red Army hockey team. Told from the perspective of its captain Slava Fetisov, the story portrays his transformation from national hero to political enemy. From the USSR to Russia, the film examines how sport mirrors social and cultural movements and parallels the rise and fall of the Red Army team with the Soviet Union. RED ARMY is an inspiring story about the Cold War played out on the ice rink, and a man who stood up to a powerful system and paved the way for change for generations of Russians. (C) Sony Classics
