VASHON FAMILY FILM FESTIVAL

Vashon Film Society presents the VASHON FAMILY FILM FESTIVAL on Saturday, November 22 from 12 noon to 2:15 pm. The afternoon of live action and animated short films is brought to the Vashon Theatre every year by Northwest Film Forum’s Liz Shepherd. Shepherd curates a “best of” selection for island audiences from her renowned week-long long Children's Film Festival Seattle. This year’s films are from Europe, Asia and the U.S. and feature clever creatures, captivating stories, and whimsical animation.

"Rabbit and Deer," the winner of three 2014 CFFS prizes (including Most Popular Film and Children's Hospital Jury Prize for best animated film), is a Hungarian charmer about two unlikely companions working to make their friendship last. And farm-dwelling islanders will especially enjoy the U.K. short "The Goat Herder and His Lots and Lots and Lots of Goats."

The 12 noon show (57 minutes) is a collection of animated films, followed by a live action program (58 minutes) at 1:15 pm, making it possible for families to catch just a single screening or stay for both. Tickets to either the animation or live action program are $7/all ages, but movie goers can save and see both film programs (with that all-important brief intermission to visit the snack bar) for $10!

Bolshoi Ballet Coming this Fall to the Vashon Theatre

Bolshoi Ballet THE PHARAOH’S DAUGHTER
Date Sunday November 23rd, 2014 1:00pm
Running time 2h30

Music Cesare Pugni
Libretto Jean-Henry Saint-Georges and Marius Petipa
Choreography, sets and costumes Pierre Lacotte

Cast Svetlana Zakharova (Aspicia), Ruslan Skvortsov (Lord Wilson) and Nina Kaptsova (Ramze, Aspicia's slave)

Young Englishman Lord Wilson is travelling through Egypt when a powerful storm breaks out. He is forced to take shelter in the nearest pyramid, where the daughter of one of Egypt’s most powerful pharaohs lies entombed. Lord Wilson falls asleep and begins to dream that the princess has come to life.

The plot of this lavish production is loosely based on Théophile Gauthier’s novel Le Roman de la Momie. French choreographer Pierre Lacotte was exclusively commissioned in 2000 by the Bolshoi Theatre to resurrect Marius Petipa’s mighty Egyptian fresco, and he succeeded brilliantly in giving new life to this forgotten masterpiece.

With its exotic setting, impressive parades, spectacular variations and crowd scenes, this grand 19th-century Orientalist fantasy is one of the most remarkable productions in the Bolshoi’s repertoire. The main roles are here danced by Bolshoi principals Svetlana Zakharova, Nina Kaptsova and Ruslan Skvortsov.

(Ballet recorded live on November 25th, 2012)
Comedy Night

35th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition

Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday November 26th at 7:30 pm
Tickets $17 for General $15 for Senior/Students
The 35th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition starts November 5, 2014 at The Columbia City Theatre in Seattle and continues nightly until a winner is crowned on Sunday, November 30 at The Comedy Underground in Seattle, but not before showing Vashon what they are made of. For the last 10 years we have been fortunate to host one of the final performances at the Vashon Theatre, every year on Thanksgiving Eve.
Before getting to the island ….there are two “preliminary” rounds of 16-17 comedians; each comedian gets 5 minutes to impress. The Preliminary rounds consist of 6 shows, and a combination of entertainment industry and celebrity judges and audience reaction determines who moves on when each performer’s 5 best scores are tallied.
The top 5 comics from the Preliminaries make the semi-finals; all the semi-finalists win some cash, and get to compete for the title by performing for 10 minutes nightly for 5 shows.
At the last Semi-Final show at the Snoqualmie Casino on Sunday, November 23, the finalists are announced. Five get to go big, and five get to go home. After 2 days to recover and plan, the Final round begins on Tuesday November 26 at the Washington Athletic Club. After visits to theaters in Vashon, Kirkland, and Bremerton, and Seattle, we will have a new champion.
By the time the finalists of the Seattle International Comedy Competition finish their run, they will have performed a minimum of 17 shows, been judged by 61 different judges, and received 427 separate scores. All while fully dressed. No wonder Hollywood seeks them out.

This is the REAL "Last Comic Standing."

Bolshoi Ballet-THE LEGEND OF LOVE

Captured Live-NEW PRODUCTION
Thursday, December 4th 7:00pm
Running time 3hr

Music Arif Melikov
Libretto Nâzım Hikmet
Original choreography Yuri Grigorovich
Buy tickets for The Legend of Love Bolshoi Ballet
Cast The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet

The royal apartments of Queen Mekhmene Banu are plunged into mourning – her young sister, Princess Shyrin, is dying. The Princess will only be saved if the Queen gives Shyrin her beauty. The Queen decides to sacrifice herself, but later regrets her action when she is disfigured and Shyrin falls in love with the Queen’s own lover, the painter Ferkhad.

This splendid tale of forbidden love, self-sacrifice, jealousy and suffering returns to the Bolshoi stage after a ten-year absence. The Legend of Love is one of Russian master Yuri Grigorovich’s earliest choreographic works, and its storyline explores the conflict between love and duty through its two heroines.

Featuring dance movements, sets and costumes inspired by the Middle East, this stunning ballet, which uses pure dance to tell the story, is further enriched by the talent of the Bolshoi troupe.

Best Rural Movie Theatre 2010- Seattle Weekly

Vashon Island dances to its own beat. Unlike the Bainbridge, Bremerton, or even Kingston ferries, if you walk onto the one departing Fauntleroy for the southwesterly isle, you're sort of stranded. Even if you bring a bike, the hill you're confronted with at the onset of the three-mile ride to Vashon's tiny commercial strip is so daunting that you'll be thumbing it in no time. But once you make it there, it's worth it, in large part because of the Vashon Theatre. Sure, they show movies—really interesting documentaries, charming indies, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at midnight. There's something for everyone, a sentiment amplified by the fact that the theater also hosts live music and theatrical productions—even an Oscar-night party, replete with a red carpet and snazzily dressed revelers. It's not just a great place to take in a flick; it's a community anchor, and a sure sign that the silver-screen experience can be preserved for as long as people are willing to breathe ingenuity and life into it. —Mike Seely
