Anna Karenina - movie - A Bold New Vision of an Epic Story of Love

Canadian debut has been pushed to November 30 and it is now in Limited Release. Location is CHANGED to South Edmonton Common movie theatre.

The story powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart. As Anna questions her happiness and marriage, change comes to all around her.

The 2012 movie adaptation of Anna Karenina debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 7.

REVIEW by THE STAR PHOENIX

"Joe Wright’s version, based on a script by Tom Stoppard, is a highly stylized version. It’s set in a theatre where the characters act out their tragedy, moving in and out of wooden sets and clearly artificial backgrounds. At a grand ball, the dancers all freeze as Anna (Keira Knightley) and her lover-to-be, Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) waltz into danger. A train to Moscow is a snow-covered model."

    Forgot one thing - I will be wearing a sunflower on my coat for identification and the big sunflower (aka Guy) is rumoured to be there as well. The lobby at South Common is very large and busy, please get your ticket and go in to the theatre. I will stand near the doors to where Anna Karenina is playing. Send an email [masked] if you have trouble locating Steve or myself. Cheers:)

      If people want to meet beforehand to get something to eat, please post and coordinate with anyone who wants to meetup. We won't be hosting a pre-event as it's difficult to organize such a large group. After the movie, whoever wants to go and chat at a place nearby can do so as more of an ad hoc thing.

    Hello! Anna Karenina is not playing at Empire Theatres City Centre. The film is in Limited Release so it's only at South Edmonton Common this week. Your fellow hosts and I have discussed a plan. Rather than change the date again, the event is being moved to Cineplex Odeon @ South Edmonton Common. Meet time is 7 pm in the lobby outside the theatre. Show starts at 7:30 pm. I'm not familiar with South Common so a meet-up spot close to the movie theatre doors is my best guess. Thank you.
    Victoria and Steve

    It looks like it's only playing at South Edmonton Common. Will the site be changing? Or the date?

    I've had a few requests to make this an evening event so I've moved start time to 6:30 pm, pending actual movie times posted by Empire Theatres.
