The hills are alive

The Sea to Sky Hotel is alive with the sound of frantic last-minute rehearsal. But the end result will be one of the biggest dramatic undertakings in Squamish history.

AT THE MOVIES: Incredibly fun

The Incredibles is an incredible feat of creativity. The movie follows in the Pixar tradition of A Bug's Life and Finding Nemo, using computer animation to create a convincing, but not quite real world.

AT THE MOVIES: Ray is solid gold

It's far easier to trash a film then to praise it. With Ray there's no easy way out: - it's all gold. The curtain opens and we're in 1951, Ray's 21 and heading for Seattle to play a lounge club.

AT THE MOVIES: Ladder 49: just too Hollywood

Ladder 49 starts out trying to convince viewers it's not a Hollywood film about firefighters. And it almost succeeds. The opening images are grainy, choppy news like footage of a building burning and emergency crews arriving.

Sound of Music announces cast

The rehearsals for The Sound of Music are well under way now that the play is fully cast. Veronica McPhee has been chosen to portray Maria, a young would-be nun who is send to act as a temporary governess to seven children.
