Monday June 11 7:00pmIn an era of climate change talk and fossil fuel subsidies, Directly Affected: Pipeline Under Pressure is a poignant and timely documentary that records the impact of the Kinder Morgan Transmountain pipeline expansion.

Ranging from scenes of the Burnaby Mountain protests, to Indigenous communities in Northern Alberta living with oil extraction, to New Brunswick where many tarsands workers live, to the Paris Climate talks, Directly Affected shows the national consequences of the oil & gas industry, and offers a microphone to those ignored by the National Energy Board review process.

Freeride & Redbull Media House Present:North of Nightfall – Nelson Premiere
Wednesday June 13 7:00pm (All Ages), 8:30pm (19+ ONLY)Join us for the Nelson, BC Premiere of the highly anticipated film from Red Bull Media House and Freeride Entertainment, NORTH OF NIGHTFALL!

Hidden among the glaciers on Axel Heiberg Island, high in the Arctic Circle, are mountain bike lines too incredible to ignore. Harsh temperatures, volatile weather and nine-month winters mean the area is normally devoid of human life. But each summer, this frozen landscape flourishes under endless daylight, revealing a spectacular ecosystem. Join Darren Berrecloth, Carson Storch, Cam Zink and Tom Van Steenbergen in North of Nightfall as they embark on an expedition to the top of the world to explore this relatively unknown land.
Here they discover a rapidly changing environment steeped in history along with ground-breaking descents unlike anything anyone’s ridden to date.

Help us keep you in the know by participating in this month’s giving challenge“With so much going on, our capacity to advertise our diverse programs is limited. Our biggest issue is getting word out to the community about events like these, even when they are free of charge.

Enter the Great Canadian Giving Challenge, a Canadahelps.org campaign promoting giving to projects across Canada throughout the month of June. Funds raised for The Civic Theatre through this campaign will support design costs, social media boosts, and virtual and printed advertising for our programs, making sure that our information about these events can reach the people who would appreciate them most.
