This Week's Movie


This week (Mar 27, 28, 29, Apr 1 at 7:30pm), we show Chappie.

Rating: 14A for violence and coarse language.

Science Fiction. In an effort to combat the high crime rate in Johannesburg, the South African police force purchases police robots. As a side project, the robot's inventor, Deon Wilson (Dev Patel) creates a prototype artificial intelligence that mimics a human mind to the point of feeling emotions and having opinions, but Tetravaal CEO Michelle Bradley (Sigourney Weaver) refuses to let him test the A.I. on a police robot. Undeterred, Deon installs the new software into a damaged robot, which responds with childlike terror upon powering up. Deon calms the robot, teaching it words and naming it "Chappie". Chappie is then raised by a couple in South African slums. --Wikipedia, Alberta Film Ratings
