Pick of the Day: Cosmopolis

Big weekend at the RPL Theatre, with two relatively high profile films screening. Tonight and Saturday at 7 p.m., and Friday and Sunday at 9 p.m., it’s Wes Anderson’s quirky coming of age period romance Moonrise Kingdom. This film was released in theatres across North America in early June and is finally making an appearance here. Here’s a link to Jorge’s review in our June 14 issue.

Playing tonight and Saturday at 9 p.m., and Friday and Sunday at 7 p.m., is David Cronenberg’s latest film Cosmopolis. It’s about a high-powered New York financier whose world is turned upside down while he’s being chauffeured across town to grab a hair cut. Here’s the trailer:

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.

  1. Moonrise Kingdom already played at the Paradise Theatres up in the north end, actually, as well as at the Rainbow last month! But all that means is that this weekend gives people a chance to see it if they haven’t already, and to see it again if they already have.

  2. Moonrise Kingdom is one of Anderson’s best, in my opinion.

    And I don’t usually get excited for trailers (the “whoring” of film) but this makes me want to see Cosmopolis.
