Thursday November 28 @ 7pm.

Chronicling the final year in the tumultuous life of the American singer and actress Judy Garland, the film depicts Garland’s struggles with addiction, depression, and stage fright, as well as her relationship with her fifth husband Mickey Deans (Finn Wittrock).

Directed by Rupert Goold, it is an adaptation of the Olivier- and Tony-nominated West End and Broadway play End of the Rainbow by Peter Quilter. The film stars Renée Zellweger as Garland, with Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock, Rufus Sewell, and Michael Gambon in supporting roles.


A great time to get together, chat with friends, and enjoy a luncheon prepared by Yummy Mummy’s Kitchen!

Date: Third Tuesday of each month.

Time: 12:00pm – 1:30pm

Cost: $15.00

Next Luncheon: Nov. 19

Ed Winacott invites…Open Mic

This stage is open!

A stage for all skill levels and all styles of acoustic music or spoken word. A welcoming listening venue for new talent to test the waters or for experienced performers to perhaps try out new material. Come and listen for free, or give a toonie (to defray the cost of the room) and perform!

  • Last Sunday of each month, @ 2pm, in the Main Gallery
  • Sign-up starts at 1:30pm.
  • We provide a sound system with mics for vocals and instruments and a house guitar to borrow for a set.
  • A set can be up to 15 minutes.

The next OPEN MIC will take place on Sunday, November 24 2019 @ 2pm.

Come along, bring your instrument (the Gallery has a piano, you don’t need to bring that), and perform for a sympathetic audience of fellow musicians!
