Welcome to The Village Playhouse

The Bancroft Village Playhouse offers audiences intimate access to live music, theatre and film. Drawing on local talent as well as nationally recognized names and acts, the Playhouse is the heart of Bancroft’s Theatre District.

With monthly TIFF screenings and community events, there’s always something going on at the historic theatre that is by operated by Hospice North Hastings in partnership with St. Paul’s United Church.

This partnership makes the Playhouse different than most theatres. All of our proceeds support the restoration and up-keep of our historic theatre but we also use Playhouse proceeds to provide what we call “Caring through Culture.” This means that proceeds from Playhouse shows, the bar, different lotteries, raffles and contests help to fund the free programs and services that are offered in our community by Hospice North Hastings.

We thank you for your support and for your on-going patronage.

TIFF Tuesday – “The Other Side of Hope” @ The Bancroft Village Playhouse
Dec 12 @ 4:15 pm

“Winner of the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, the new film from Finnish master Aki Kaurismäki (Le Havre) intertwines the stories of two itinerant protagonists: Khaled (Sherwan Haji), a young Syrian refugee who drifts into Helsinki harbour as a stowaway; and Wikström (Sakari Kuosmanen), a travelling salesman turned restaurateur, who finds Khaled sleeping outside his diner and hires him as a cleaner and dishwasher.” – TIFF

 

“The issue of migrants and refugees [may] still be something from which cinema mostly averts its gaze, [but] not Kaurismäki’s cinema…. His humane comedy [has] absorbed this idea, [and] in fact embraced it with almost miraculous ease and simplicity” (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian).
