About Us

Sudbury Indie Cinema is a not-for-profit co-op. Since 2015, we have been bringing the best in independent cinema to Northern Ontario on a year-round basis. We are mission-driven, rather than profit-driven. We select high-caliber, laudable films that give voice to lesser-heard perspectives on the big screen. We actively support other arts organizations, grassroots not-for-profits and local homegrown filmmakers. Originally, back in summer 2013, we formed as a community response to the growing monopoly of Hollywood blockbusters on a shrinking number of large screens. We have since repurposed part of a closed school into a single screen, state-of-the-art, 180-seat digital cinema. We opened at 162 Mackenzie Feb. 28th, 2019. Access us from the side door at the north side of the building: free parking in the laneway.

Sudbury Indie Cinema Board of Directors 2019/20

We have a growing membership of 1000 Charter members who are cinephiles, appreciate independent cinema, support the co-operative movement, and cherish the growing arts and culture hub downtown.

Parasite

Parasite

  • 6 Academy Awards  Picture, Director, Foreign Language Film, Original Screenplay, Film Editing and Production Design

Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, PARASITE showcases a modern master at the top of his game.

The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse

  • Opens January 9

From Robert Eggers, the visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece The Witch, comes this hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s. Featuring an experienced old guy (Willem Dafoe) and a young lumberjack turned lighthouse keeper (Robert Pattinson). Their desires, fears, the suggestive environment and the loneliness play tricks on their minds determining their relationship in a rather cathartic way.

The Farewell

The Farewell

  • Opens January 12
  • Golden Globe Nominee

In this funny, uplifting tale based on an actual lie, Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi (Awkwafina) reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai, has been given mere weeks to live, everyone has decided not to tell Nai Nai herself. To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad. As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations and proprieties, she finds there’s a lot to celebrate: a chance to rediscover the country she left as a child, her grandmother’s wondrous spirit, and the ties that keep on binding even when so much goes unspoken. With The Farewell, writer/director Lulu Wang has created a heartfelt celebration of both the way we perform family and the way we live it, masterfully interweaving a gently humorous depiction of the good lie in action with a richly moving story of how family can unite and strengthen us, often in spite of ourselves.

Les Misérables

  • Academy Award Nominee / Golden Globe Nominee

Stéphane, tout juste arrivé de Cherbourg, intègre la Brigade Anti-Criminalité de Montfermeil, dans le 93. Il va faire la rencontre de ses nouveaux coéquipiers, Chris et Gwada, deux “Bacqueux” d’expérience. Il découvre rapidement les tensions entre les différents groupes du quartier. Alors qu’ils se trouvent débordés lors d’une interpellation, un drone filme leurs moindres faits et gestes...

Stéphane has recently joined the Anti-Crime Brigade in Montfermeil, in the Paris suburbs. Alongside his new colleagues Chris and Gwada - both experienced members of the team - he quickly discovers tensions running high between neighbourhood gangs. When they find themselves overrun during the course of an arrest, a drone captures their every movement, their every action... Inspired by the 2005 riots, director Ladj Ly explores contemporary Montfermeil, the same place where Victor Hugo chose to set “Les Misérables” in 1862. More than 150 years later, the similarities between today’s angry, hoodie-wearing youth and Gavroche are only too clear.

Tracy Edwards proved them wrong. 26-year-old skipper Edwards, her second-hand racing yacht Maiden, and her seasoned crew not only became the first-ever all-woman challenge to the Whitbread, they proved able competitors in the famously grueling race, besting male crews in their class. By the time they returned to their starting point at Southampton, England after 32,000 miles of global racing, they had shocked, inspired, and transfixed the sailing world and the British nation. Tracy Edwards was awarded the 1990 Yachtsman of the Year Award, the first woman ever to receive the accolade, and was named a Member of the Order of the British Empire.

It’s Hard to be Human is a surreal drama inspired by Strindberg’s 'A Dream Play’. It's a visceral experience of Agnes, God's daughter, in the liminal place before death.

Agnes is an 18-year-old delinquent who just can’t figure out the point of it all – life on earth. Her brother, Oscar, is a cop. Her Father (God) is a busy man, a torn husband and too tired to father anyone. Her Mother self-medicates and lives to die. Peter, her best friend, is an addict and a poet. Larry, her lover, strives for duty, marriage and the norm, because that’s where his happiness is. And then there’s Victoria, an enlightened spirit who emanates heaven. She’s got something everyone wants and because Agnes can’t have her, wants to destroy her.
