If you’ve been watching this site like a hawk, waiting for news of our February–April shows, you may have noticed that a couple of films have been removed from the list—The Leisure Seeker and The Other Side of Hope. Rest assured that we still intend to do everything we can to show these two movies; we’re just waiting on solid dates from our distributors. As soon as we know for sure when they’ll play, they’ll appear here on our website.
See you at the movies!
Due to circumstances beyond our control, we’ve had to remove The Leisure Seeker from our February program. We hope to be able to get it into the schedule at a later date.
We’ll have a new film scheduled soon for the weekend of Feb. 2-4.

After a great turnout at the Evans Theatre in Brandon, director Graham Street and colleagues Shaun Cameron and Nate Bower were presented with mementos of their hard work by members of the XII Manitoba Dragoons Museum. Left to right are: Nate Bower; volunteer John Ball; Shaun Cameron; Graham Street; Don Berry, President, 26th Field Regiment / XII Manitoba Dragoons Museum; and Glenn Ball, Secretary, Museum Board.
Over $800.00 was raised for the museum through donations by the near-capacity crowd.
On the weekend of April 22nd-24th, we’ll be showing either Born to be Blue or Race. And it’s your call!
Vote for your favourite!
We’ll be taking a break over December, and will return in January with more great movies and documentaries. Keep an eye on this site for details!
Hey, look what showed up in the booth!
A huge thank you to all our donors, sponsors, and our ever-faithful audience!
