Join us in celebrating National Canadian Film Day at the library!
We will be hosting a movie night on Wednesday, April 19th, 2023 in celebration of National Canadian Film Day!
Originally launched in 2014, National Canadian Film Day celebrates the diversity of Canadian filmmakers and Canadian cinema by making films available to libraries, schools, retirement residences, community centres, and other organizations for free.
We invite members of the public to come out to the library for one or both of our movie showings that we will be putting on. Our first showing will be from 4:00pm to 5:30pm, and we will be watching the movie Leap (aka Ballerina). This movie is rated PG. Our second showing will be from 6:30pm to 8:00pm and we will be watching the movie Slash/Back. This movie is rated 14A and will be shown after library hours, so regular library services will be unavailable.
We ask that attendees arrive a few minutes early to get your seats and snacks. We will be offering popcorn with a drink of juice or water for $1, but you are welcome to bring your own snacks as well.
Showing #1: Leap (aka Ballerina)
(Rated PG) from 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Best friends Félicie and Victor hatch a plan to escape from their rural orphanage in 19th-century France. Félicie dreams of becoming a ballerina, while Victor wants to use his brainpower to invent things. After busting out, Félicie makes her way to the Paris Opera where she joins a class of highly trained dancers who are auditioning for the lead in a production of "The Nutcracker."
Showing #2: Slash/Back
(Rated 14A) from 6:30pm to 8:00pm
When Maika and her ragtag friends discover an alien invasion in their tiny arctic hamlet, it's up to them to save the day. Utilizing their makeshift weapons and horror movie knowledge, the aliens realize you don't mess with girls from Pang. With a cast of local actors and an Inuit cultural lens on the invasion genre, this teen horror-comedy has more charm than an Arctic summer day has sunlight!
