Upcoming Screening of "The Boy in Blue" - April 19th, 7:00pm at the BR Community Hall - FREE
In 1984, Nicolas Cage and Christopher Plummer starred in a movie called “The Boy in Blue”, which was partially filmed here in Burritt’s Rapids. It was realized worldwide in 1986.
In 31 years, the movie has never been screened publicly here in the village. Until now.
As part of the Canadian Day of Film in celebration of Canada’s 150th celebration, more than 1,700 free screenings of select Canadian films will be taking place across Canada on the same day. Although “The Boy in Blue” was not part of their regular catalogue of offerings, the folks at REEL CANADA, the non-profit behind the free screenings, agreed to track down the film’s owners/distributors and arrange a screening.
Date: Wednesday, April 19th
Time: 7:00pm (doors open at 6:30)
Location: Burritt’s Rapids Community Hall
Free popcorn and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided compliments of the Burritt’s Rapids Community Association (BRCA).
