Bundle up the kids, warm up the lawn chairs, and get ready to greet jolly old St. Nick as he comes through your town!
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.
The jolliest time of year is finally upon us, and what better way to celebrate it than with the arrival of the jolliest holiday gift giver around?
The big man with the beard, Santa Claus himself, will be arriving at the Pen Centre bright and early Saturday morning. Be there at 10am and be sure to get a wristband to guarantee your seat for the fun! Magic, juggling, and more will welcome Santa to his holiday throne, to be followed by photo's with the big man for all the girls and boys.
Looking for a fun way to spend this brisk November afternoon? The St. Catharines Museum is hosting it's annual Friends Day today from 12pm-4pm.
Attendees will enjoy a silent auction, a Mad Science demonstration for the kids, free admission to select exhibits and much more! For complete details and a schedule of events, click on the Friends Days entry on the special events page of the Museum's website.
Niagara Falls will be playing host to a cavalcade of comedians tonight, with 10 stand up comics taking the stage at the Greg Frewin Theatre to support a very noble cause.
Johnny Gardhouse, Nikki Payne and a host of others will be performing a benefit concert in memoriam for fellow comic Rodney Pentland who recently passed away due to complications from kidney disease. The money from tonight's show will go to support a new kidney dialysis centre in Niagara Falls. Tickets are $29. For more information, visit niagarafallscomedyfest.com.
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.
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.
Hectic class schedule or crazy work morning got you down? Why not let some musical therapy lift your spirits?
