MOVIES AT THE MAC!
Officially partnering for the first time ever, IANA and the T&AAC are thrilled to be presenting NEW RELEASE FEATURE FILMS at the MARBLE ARTS CENTRE in Actinolite for the next twelve months, on the big screen with big sound! Starting this August, we will present some of your favourite films, movie marathons, brand new films just out of theatres and more!
MOVIES AT THE MAC is a brand new venture and we could not be more excited about it! No more driving to Belleville for dinner and a movie, or heading as far as Ottawa or Toronto to see films not shown at major theatres. We will be programming features throughout the year, and want to hear from the community of Tweed and the whole county to get your input as well!
The program will begin at the end of the month with the classic Elvis feature ‘VIVA LAS VEGAS’ to coincide with the culmination of this year’s ELVIS FESTIVAL. It will show Sunday, August 25th at 7 PM at the Marble Arts Centre. Tickets will be $5.00 for adults, and $2.50 for youth (under 18) or anyone with a pass to the Elvis Festival.
MOVIES AT THE MAC will continue in September with a MOVIE MUSICAL MARATHON & CANADIAN CULTURE EXTRAVAGANZA as part of Culture days 2013! Come and see the best movie musicals ever made, as curated by the staff and ensemble of IANA Theatre Company, as well as some of the decades best Canadian Feature films that you may have missed in theatres. This event will be the OFFICIAL OPENING of MOVIES AT THE MAC and will be an all-day event on Sunday, September 29th. In honour of culture day’s mission to have everyone EXPLORE, DISCOVER and PARTICIPATE in arts and culture in every community across the country, admission to this event will be by donation only.
Come and witness some of the best films the world has to offer, right here in your home town, in the beautiful atmosphere of the Marble Arts Centre (with a little extra flair) on the BIG SCREEN! Popcorn and Pop will also be available at our concession during the events.
The proceeds for the entire MOVIES AT THE MAC program over the next twelve months will be divided evenly between IANA and the T & AAC, allowing both organizations to continue to grow and develop the important work they do throughout the community. Come on out and see some great films, and support two fantastic local organizations at the same time!
We would also like to graciously thank our first sponsors of MOVIES AT THE MAC, BUSH FURNITURE, POPLARS GOLF CLUB, TWEED IDA & THE GREAT STOCO AND MOIRA FOOD COMPANY.
Thank you for your continued support, and we can’t wait to see you at the next MOVIE AT THE MAC!
Big Movies, Big Screen, Small town!
