Showcase Cinema

Showcase Cinema is a member of Film Circuit, the Toronto International Film Festival's national film outreach programme, engaging domestic grassroots networks and strong community partnerships to bring the best of Canadian and world cinema to communities across the country.

We've screened Canadian films such as Brooklyn, Mean Dreams, The Steps, and Maudie. As well, Showcase Cinema has screened a diverse mix of engaging international films, including Moonlight, The Dressmaker, The Glass Castle, and Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool. Showcase Cinema provides film-goers an opportunity to see films that may not otherwise be available in Rocky Mountain House.

Join us at Rocky Cinemas on the second Wednesday of the month at 5:00 PM or 7:00 PM from September to April to watch some of the best independent films. 

Season passes for the 2019-2020 season are now available for sale at the Rocky Public Library. Passes are $70.00 each. That's one free film if you attend all eight screenings!

Worried that you won’t be able to attend every film?
If you are a season pass holder and cannot attend a particular screening, you are welcome to transfer your pass to another person to use for the evening.

If you would like to help select the films we bring in for Showcase Cinema please e-mail armh@prl.ab.ca to request to be added to the selection committee.

Film selection packages are distributed twice a year, (late Summer for the four September - December films, and again at the end of the year for the four January - April films). Committee members can review the list of available films and cast their votes for which ones they would like to see.
