Gene Wilder Memorial Movie Night

August 26 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

In honour of Gene Wilder and his wonderful career we will meet for a Yahrtzeit* viewing of “The Frisco Kid“.

It is a classic movie exploring the liminal space where Jewish traditions meets the wider world. It is both a serious Western and an immigrant story, full of the drama of the Gold Rush as seen through the unique lens of a Jewish protagonist. The movie is a comedy that reveals and punctuates great depth and heart.

When: Saturday, August 26

Time: 6pm doors open for shmoozing and nosh (talking and snacking), 7pm movie start (length: 2h2m)

Where: University District (exact location provided with RSVP confirmation)

Note: Space is limited to 30 people, RSVP is required on a first-come first-served basis.

Stay tuned for more details, including pricing, and RSVP link.
