Movie Night Rain Date: Wednesday, August 10th at 8:30 PM

Due to the weather forecast, we have rescheduled the outdoor movie night to Wednesday, August 10th at 8:30 PM. 

We will be screening The Royal Journey in the backyard garden at Government House. The movie is free and open to all.

The film captures the five-week visit of Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh to Canada and the United States in the fall of 1951. Stops on the royal tour include Québec City, the National War Memorial in Ottawa, the Trenton Air Force Base in Toronto, a performance of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet in Regina and visits to Calgary and Edmonton. The royal train crosses the Rockies and makes stops in several small towns. They are then welcomed to the United States by President Truman. The remainder of the journey includes visits to Montreal, the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, a steel mill in Sydney, Nova Scotia and Portugal Cove, Newfoundland.

Bring your favorite blanket, sit on the lawn, and enjoy complimentary popcorn during the film. Limited seating options will be available. Guests may bring lawn chairs for comfort.
