REEL CANADA coming to Yarmouth!

The Western Branch of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is excited about being part of National Canadian Film Day (NCFD), an initiative of REEL CANADA which will be celebrated coast-to-coast on Wednesday, April 29. This event is sponsored by the Friends  of the Gallery and is a day for all Canadians to celebrate Canada by watching a great Canadian films.

Sharon Corder, Artistic Director for REEL CANADA says, “The fact is, Canadians love Canadian movies when they actually get a chance to see them.  So when we give them that opportunity, it really is a party.”

The line up for shows at the AGNS in Yarmouth is spectacular: Barney’s Version at 1 pm (Seniors will get a kick out of this movie, set in Montreal and starring Dustin Hoffman.)  Kids and their parents will love The Whale (a true story about Luna the whale) at 4 p.m. and the evening show at 7 pm is The Iron Road, starring Peter O’Toole.  

All the movies are free; children must be accompanied by an adult for The Whale.

Refreshments will be served at each showing for a Toonie. To make sure you have a seat, call the AGNS (902 749-2248) and reserve your seat! The movies are free!
