HOCKEY: THE STORIES BEHIND OUR PASSION
For millions of Canadians, hockey means everything. Hockey brings us together. It thrills us. It’s part of our identity, our shared history. It’s a passion handed down from generation to generation, a recreational activity, and a commercial enterprise. This exhibition, developed by the Canadian Museum of History and where it premiered, March 10 to October 9, 2017, details the evolution of the sport through historic highlight reels, interactive components and one-of-a-kind artifacts. Visitors will find themselves in the places where Canadians live and breathe hockey: from dressing room to press-box, rink to corporate boardroom, players’ bench to backyard game. They will come to understand why hockey holds such a significant place in the hearts of Canadians. This unique travelling exhibition offers visitors an exciting interactive experience showcasing hockey from both yesterday and today. Hockey: The Stories Behind Our Passion looks back over the past 100 years and earlier, and brings the history of the game to life through profiles of those who live and love it, both the professionals and amateurs. https://manitobamuseum.ca/main/exhibition/hockey-the-stories-behind-our-passion/

THE NUN (SEPT 5, 2018)
Filmmaker James Wan, director of the record-setting horror hits “The Conjuring” and “The Conjuring 2,” explores another dark corner of that universe with “The Nun.” Directed by Corin Hardy (“The Hallow”), the new fright-fest is produced by Wan and by Peter Safran, who has produced all the films in “The Conjuring” franchise. When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in “The Conjuring 2,” as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned. “The Nun” opens everywhere on Friday, September 7th. Listen for your chance to win invites to our exclusive Winnipeg advance screening on Wednesday, September 5th.
