The Zoetic Theatre & Creative Arts Company 1/1 by Tripoto

I have only been to The Zoetic Theatre once, but I already know that this is a firm favourite thing to see and do in Hamilton. It is also one that I recommend if you are ever in the area! Yesterday marked the opening of The Zoetic, owned by a group of creative professionals. It is at 526 Concession and is an old movie theatre, tastefully renovated to keep it's historic charm. Originally, this little theatre was a hotel in 1895. It was taken over as a movie theatre in 1930, having burnt down. On it's opening night, The Zoetic played an independent film 'Artless', filmed in a combination of locations, including Hamilton, Toronto and New York. Written and directed by Christena Hampson and Jeremy Major, who both star in the movie, this is a film about two lovers who struggle to keep their love afloat whilst each struggling with their artistic sensibilities. The fact that the two main characters were named Luke and Holly added to the charm and magic of the evening for Luke and I. It was a beautifully written and filmed picture and some of the shots were breathtaking. It was a film with wonderful symmetry and that seemed so real. It was so exciting that the main characters were on hand for a Q&A session after the film, and quite thrilling that Christena Hampson held the door open for us! We can't wait to go back to watch 'Casablanca' on Valentines Day!
