Free-B Lineup 2014

We heard you, Victoria!

In honour of Robin Williams we are switching films on Friday from Streetfighter to... A Night at the Museum!

After the outpour of requests for a line-up change, we tried to get a film with Robin as the lead, but on such short notice and with limited funds, we were able to get this one. So come out all you Robin Williams fans to celebrate a great man's life, comedy and genuine talent! We will be cheering and crying with you! 

This will be screening THIS Friday, August 15th at 9:00pm RAIN or SHINE! Bring umbrellas, snacks, LOTS of blankets, flashlights and maybe a tarp or two!

 


The WINNER has been chosen! Congrats to Miranda Maclean! Enjoy Snowpiercer!

We would still love to hear from you! If you have a few minutes, please give us your feedback and film suggestions for Free-B!
