Ghostbusters screening tonight? We're ready to believe you!

ghostbusters-trio.jpg

Fan favorites like Alien and Army of Darkness have recently made the rounds at the Empire Theatre's monthly vintage print nights in St. Catharines. But tonight? Tonight they're screening one of the most beloved comedies of all time: Ghostbusters.

Screening takes place tonight (November 27th, 2009) at midnight in the Empire Theatres at the Pen Centre. Admission is $6.99, or $9.99 with pop and popcorn. If you're a child of the 80's, this could be the greatest movie theatre experience of your life!

Just a side note for film purists -- Film Junk is reporting that tonight's screening will be a digital projection of the recent blu-ray release and not the original 35mm print. It might not matter to everyone, but there's definitely a crowd out there that might want to give this one a pass because of it.

canadasciencemuseum.jpg

Canadians are a crafty bunch. The pacemaker? We made that. Aeronautical discoveries? Made those too. Bacon-wrapped maple poutine? You'd better know we made that. Now you can learn more about our technological past (minus the poutine) as the St. Catharines Museum welcomes the Canadian Science & Engineering Hall of Fame's travelling exhibit.

The exhibit, which will showcase the best of our history of invention and discovery, is on until January 3rd 2010. For more information, contact the St. Catharines Museum.

Winter Festival of Lights opening ceremonies this Saturday

wfol08.jpg

I may be no spring chicken, but I can honestly say that I don't remember a time before the Winter Festival of Lights. Now celebrating it's 27th season, Niagara's greatest holiday lights display will be kicking off this Saturday, November 7th.

Before they flip the switch there's going to be a big party to celebrate the 27th season in Victoria Park. Disney characters will perform, as well as the Festival of Lights Holiday Choir. Once they flip the switch, they'll mark the kick off of this year's lightstravaganza with a massive fireworks display. If you can't make the first event, a second stage performance followed by another fireworks display will take place at 7pm.
