My Winnipeg

"Cult director Guy Maddin revisits his boyhood in Winnipeg, casting 1940s femme fatale Ann Savage in the role of his mother. The reality-bending doesn't end there. Creative interpretations of local lore, re-enactments of childhood traumas, and a quasi-documentary style make MY WINNIPEG a surreal reinvention of childhood" - rottentomatoes.com. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

Tickets for all films are $1 and may be purchased at the Library up to a week in advance of the show times.  Seating is limited, so purchase tickets early!
