Crystal Journey New Year's Eve

On the eve of a Full Moon, David Hickey's Crystal Journey will welcome in the New Year with a special focus on raising your positivity as you enter a new chapter in your life. Known for a powerful, hypnotic sound that blends international instruments such as Paiste Planet Gongs, Quartz Crystal Bowls and Persian Santour - Crystal Journey is a one-of-a-kind experience in the Meditative/Sound World.

The first set will focus on the parallel energies of the "Summer of Love" 1967 and 2017 by touching on the music, peace, social and environmental issues of the day. The second set will be a chance for all of us to set new goals, uncover new energies and to connect with a whole new way of being. In 1968 the energy was dramatically altered just as it will be in 2018. The idea that we cannot continue in the old way and expect things to be different or better... It's time for a whole new makeover.

Are you ready to take the Journey?

Live Concert Celebration: Liteyears, Mike Maas, Wild Night

We're celebrating 90 years of entertainment in Hamilton with a rocking hometown concert by Liteyears, Mike Maas & The Late Night Lineup, and Wild Night. With open arms, this city has long embraced music and art of all styles, genres and mediums from artists of all walks of life and given them a voice. Since 1927, The Zoetic Theatre venue has given those voices the opportunity to be heard.

Come celebrate a favourite hometown venue and an amazing line-up of local artists on November 25th and help us prove why Hamilton is the best city in the world!

LITEYEARS:
Hailing from Hamilton, Ontario, LITEYEARS is a pop band on the rise that’s been quickly making a name for themselves on Canada’s national stage. Drawing from a diverse sonic palette ranging from cinematic orchestral arrangements reminiscent of a Hans Zimmer film score to the electronic sensibilities of modern pop music, LITEYEARS has created an honest representation of themselves and their musical tastes: high energy, anthemic alternative-pop with depth.

MIKE MAAS & THE LATE NIGHT LINEUP:
Led by Hamilton native and veteran singer-songwriter Mike Maas , Mike Maas & The Late Night Lineup is a confident pop rock blend of earthy acoustic and echoing ambient soundscapes. With Maas’ powerful and emotive voice at the forefront, the band’s infectious and masterfully-written ballads draw influence from the likes of Coldplay, U2 and The Beatles.

WILD NIGHT:
Wild Night hail from the smoke stacks of Hamilton, Ontario. They play rock and roll like their lives depend on it because, while they were growing up, they did. Carrying the echoes of their parents’ records, Wild Night are out to revive the heart and spirit of everything good that is gone.


Since 1927, The Zoetic Theatre has been a landmark on Hamilton Mountain offering everything from vaudeville to cinema to live performance. Alongside the theatre’s 90th anniversary, The Zoetic itself heads into its fifth year as an arts and entertainment organization. Join us for this live concert celebration!

Hamilton Film Festival: Rust and Bone & Author Craig Davidson

rust and bone.jpg

Presented by GritLit and the Hamilton Film Festival

RUST AND BONE

It all begins in the North of France. Ali suddenly finds himself with a five year-old child on his hands. Sam is his son, but he hardly knows him. Homeless, penniless and friendless, Ali takes refuge with his sister in Antibes. There things improve immediately. She puts them up in her garage, she takes the child under her wing and the weather is glorious. Ali first runs into Stephanie during a night club brawl. He drives her home and leaves her his phone number. He is poor, she is beautiful and self-assured, a princess: his complete opposite. Stephanie trains killer whales at Marineland. When a performance ends in tragedy, a call in the night again brings them together. When Ali sees her next, his princess is confined to a wheel chair: she has lost her legs and quite a few illusions. He simply helps her, with no compassion or pity. And she comes alive again.

AFTER THE FILM

Craig Davidson will be available for a Q&A and will be selling and signing his new book, Precious Cargo. CRAIG DAVIDSON was born and grew up in St. Catharines, Ontario, near Niagara Falls. He has published three previous books of literary fiction: Rust and Bone, which was made into an Oscar-nominated feature film of the same name, The Fighter, and Sarah Court. Davidson is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and his articles and journalism have been published in the National Post, Esquire, GQ, The Walrus, and The Washington Post, among other places. He lives in Toronto, Canada, with his partner and their child.

This night is all about the power and celebration of music, specifically Heavy Metal, as we journey back to 1994 when a live concert, by Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden's frontman), changed the lives of the town's people who struggled to simply feel human again during the seigein Sarajevo. This film deals with the impact of the seige, and a concert that almost didn't happen.

After the film we will celebrate with a local band performing their brand of Heavy Metal, with perhaps a few inspiring tunes related to the film! 

Scream For Me Sarajevo is a documentary film about Sarajevo during the 1992-95 siege; specifically a film about the music scene in the besieged Bosnian capital with special focus on a concert held in the city's BKC music hall by Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) on December 14, 1994. It is a film about people who risked their lives to perform for the people who risked their lives in order to live them. Watch the trailer here

THAT NEVER HAPPENED (Ryan Boyko / Documentary / Hamilton / 75min) reveals the story of Canada’s first national internment operations between 1914 - 1920, when over 88,000 people were forced to register and more than 8,500 were wrongfully imprisoned in concentration camps across Canada, not for anything they had done but because of where they came from. In 1954, the public records were destroyed and in the 1980s a few brave men and women began working to reclaim this chapter in history and ensure future generations would know about it. TRAILER

An Evening with Medium Sherry Gallant

The death of a loved one is one of life’s most difficult experiences. The struggle with many intense and frightening emotions, including depression, anger, and guilt.  Feeling isolated and alone in your grief, but having someone to lean on can help you through the grieving process.

In this live event, Sherry will validate messages from loved ones who have crossed over to members of the audience and educate them that our loved ones are always with us.   

She creates a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere in order to ensure a peaceful and spiritual experience. She continues to encourage her sceptics to not let discomfort prevent them from receiving validation and loving messages from their loved ones who have crossed over.

Sherry brings comfort, hope and closure to people who are grieving the loss of their loved ones.  She continues to help countless people. Having suffered a tremendous amount of grief herself, Sherry understands the emptiness inside.  Her inspiration and motivational communications with the spirt world has truly been unbelievable.

The Door You Came In

Created and performed by
David Macfarlane and Douglas Cameron

The Door You Came In isn’t quite a play and it isn’t quite a concert.  It’s a musical story – sometimes funny, sometimes tragic – that tells the tales of family, and memory, and war.

A writer visits his dying mother.   He brings a book that he’d written twenty-five years ago to read to her.  It’s about her family.   But it’s also about the terrible battle – Beaumont Hamel – that sits at the heart of both Newfoundland’s and her family’s history.   So begins The Door You Came In -- a two-man performance based on David Macfarlane’s acclaimed memoir, The Danger Tree. 

The songs and the music of The Door You Came In are Douglas Cameron’s department.  A seasoned, Juno-nominated singer and performer, Cameron plays banjola, mandolin, ukulele, and accordion.  His engaging, foot-tapping performance combines popular tunes of the day (“Pack Up Your Troubles,” and “If You Were the Only Girl in the World”) with original compositions.  Macfarlane’s narrative weaves seamlessly throughout the music.

Annie Sing-Along!

A sing-along for the whole family! It's the original Annie movie done Zoetic-style, with lyrics on screen, prop bags, costume contest, face-painting, and most importantly - you singing! If you haven't experienced one of our sing-alongs, it's quite a feeling singing along with 300 other people! 

ANNIE is the story of a plucky, red-haired girl who dreams of life outside her dreary orphanage. One day, Annie (Aileen Quinn) is chosen to stay for one week with the famous billionaire "Daddy" Warbucks (Albert Finney). One week turns into many and the only person standing in the way of Annie's fun is Miss Hannigan, the gin-soaked ruler of the orphanage (played to hilarious perfection by Carol Burnett). Will Miss Hannigan's zany attempts to kidnap the irrepressible Annie succeed?

Join in for unforgettable songs, including "It's A Hard Knock Life" and "Tomorrow."
