The Walk a Mile Film Project
***Admission by freewill offering.***
King’s Theatre is pleased to present The Walk-A-Mile Film Project, a series of 5 short documentary films about the reality of the life and history of Indigenous peoples in Canada. Award winning film maker Michelle Derosier’s films address subjects such as treaties, racism, violence against women, and the way forward.
Film Producer John Hannam from Thunder Bay will be in attendance, and will be joined by Respected Elder Wanda Finnigan from L’sitkuk First Nation Mi’kmaq community for a discussion following the film.
Here are the titles:
- COMING TO TERMS
- WE ARE ALL TREATY PEOPLE
- A LEGACY OF STRUGGLE
- TARGETS & HEROES
- THE WAY FORWARD
The project was a collaboration between the City of Thunder Bay and Thunderstone Pictures to bring discussions on diversity and relationship-building into sharper focus. The film aims to encourage all community members, no matter where they come from, to fully understand historical Aboriginal and community issues in their current context so that we can have discussions that are both informed as well as welcoming and respectful.
DIG OUT YOUR COSTUMES, THE 1970s CULT CLASSIC IS BACK!!
Campy, brilliant and utterly bonkers, it’s no wonder this is a cult classic and a much loved favourite. The only way to watch this is to sing along as enthusiastically and loudly as possible and if you don’t wake up the neighbours and had a knock at the door from the police, you’ve failed.
It’s quite hard to describe the plot past “Brad and Janet’s car breaks down and they find themselves in a house” because that’s when all hell breaks loose. Singing, dancing, Meat Loaf and a man in very tight golden underwear is just a small part of the madness and it’s very, very fun.

About the Nutcracker
Clara is given an enchanted Nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve. As midnight strikes, she creeps downstairs to find a magical adventure awaiting her and her Nutcracker.
The magician Drosselmeyer transforms the drawing room for a battle between mice and toy soldiers. During the battle, Clara saves the Nutcracker’s life – so breaking a magical spell that turned him from a boy to a toy – and the Mouse King is defeated. In celebration, Drosselmeyer sweeps Clara and the Nutcracker off to the Kingdom of Sweets, where they meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and take part in a wonderful display of dances. The next morning, Clara’s adventures seem to have been more than just a dream.
It’s the Second Annual Benefit Concert for the Annapolis Food Bank with Paul O’Brien and members of his musical his family. There will also be some other special musical guests.
Last year’s event was a gorgeous concert of contemporary celtic-folk-pop with lush family harmonies. But more than that, it raised several thousands of dollars (and many boxes of food) for the Food Bank. It’s a night that will put you in the spirit of the season.
Admission by freewill donation to the Foodbank of cash or non-perishable food.
