Uncalculating Nature: Alberta Pianofest, running through July 20, hosts a double-header of two conjoining concerts sharing a single theme — exploring the role that nature plays in art, and vice versa. The first performance of the evening features a philosophical talk before world-renowned pianist Frederic Chiu takes the stage. Later, guests at the late-night show will be treated to beautiful poetry readings from Edmonton’s fourth poet laureate, Anna Marie Sewell, interspersed throughout an array of nature-inspired piano pieces including the world premiere of a piece composed by internationally-recognized local pianist Michael Massey.

Shazam! (2019): Free admission for kids 12 and under, one of the better DC films of late, lacking that endless grim touch. The story goes, we all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In 14-year-old Billy Batson’s case, all he needs to do is shout out one word to transform into the adult superhero Shazam, and fight the deadly forces of evil. Again, kids get in free, part of Metro’s Reel Family Cinema series.
