National Canadian Film Day 150

NCFD horizontal logo with dropshadow.png

The World’s Largest Film Festival. EVER. National Canadian Film Day 150 (NCFD 150) is a massive one-day, coast-to-coast-to-coast celebration of Canadian cinema in honour of our nation’s sesquicentennial.

the-grand-seduction-poster1Please join us on Wednesday, April 19th at 1:30 pm at the Circle Theatre for a FREE screening of “The Grand Seduction”.

A funny and fresh English-language adaptation of the 2003 Quebecois comedy La grande séduction, this film tells the tale of a small fishing village in Newfoundland that must secure a new doctor in order to keep the community alive.

When city doctor Paul Lewis (Kitsch) arrives for a court-ordered trial residence, the townsfolk rally to charm and hoodwink him into staying. Under the guidance of an unemployed fisherman (Gleeson), they go to hilarious lengths to fabricate all the amenities of the big city and make it seem as though their sleepy town has everything Dr. Lewis could possibly want. Will the good doc fall for their tricks, or will he see through them to the truth about small town life?
