The Stand! movie musical (the #1 Canadian film during its release) is the film adaptation of Danny Schur & Rick’s Chafe’s award-winning musical Strike!. Set against the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike, it is the story of Ukrainian immigrants fleeing from Russia’s war on Ukraine, trying to make a better life in Winnipeg. The screening will be held in the historic Burton Cummings (AKA “Walker”) Theatre – site of a famous General Strike meeting. Admission is free, with a special Q & A after the screening. Popcorn and beverages will be sold. Guests are invited to dress like it’s 1919.
