The Planets                 Oct. 19

TCU Place

Blast off with the Saskatoon Symphony as they celebrate the work of Gustav Holst. The Planets is a seven-movement work that explores the outer reaches of space with each new piece. This music is some of the most recognizable ever written and inspired composers like John Williams to write the score for Star Wars or Hans Zimmer to create the soundtrack for Gladiator. To add to the magic of the evening, actual NASA footage of the planets gathered from the Mars rover and satellite imagery will be projected on screens behind the SSO. The Saskatoon Astronomical Society will also be on hand that evening with its telescopes before the show and at intermission so the audience can do a little star gazing. Tickets are $32 – $73.

Pulp Fiction 25th Anniversary Screening


Roxy Theatre

It was a film that changed the way I looked at movies and, quite frankly, John Travolta. Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction sent shock waves through the movie scene when it was released in 1994. The storyline all mixed up with different vignettes that follow the lives of career criminals. This show and it’s quotes spawned drinking games, Halloween costumes and I’m sure many late nights trying to put the story in order. To celebrate this film marking 25 years, the Roxy Theatre is hosting a special screening. Tickets are $10 and that’s less than a Royale with cheese!
