Sustainability Night Tonight, Int Women’s Day Tomorrow

March 7, 2022 at 10:14 pm  Entertainment, Kamloops

Today’s the day for our Sustainability Evening!

Be sure to catch all three of our films for one low price: Returning Home, a documentary that discusses the impacts of residential schools on our Indigenous communities; it will be preceded by the short Unicorn Code, a family-friendly fantasy that emphasizes our need to protect what we love; and at 9pm, we have Fly Monarca, a thrilling adventure amidst the current climate change crisis.

At 7:30pm, after the second of the three films, Peter ter Weeme –BCLC’s VP Social Purpose and Player Experience— will moderate a panel discussion that will include filmmakers, climate change experts and academics. Bring your questions related to the two films and climate change in general. Most of the time allotted is being devoted to engaging with the audience.

It’s also a #FilmsForACause day!

Before our screenings of Returning Home and House of Gucci

In 2021, while families who escaped wildfire zones in BC’s Interior worked to recover, their four-legged, furry family members were being brought to the SPCA’s temporary evacuation centre in Kamloops. Kamloops is one of two cities in B.C (the other being Prince George) that was equipped last year with the supplies needed to set up an evacuation centre at a moment’s notice. Emergency boarding is one of two key services offered each wildfire season by the SPCA. With wildfire potential in the months to come, we are partnering with the Kamloops & District BC SPCA to help them gather some much-needed supplies to help them with the wonderful work that they do.  Representatives from the SPCA will be on hand to collect physical and cash donations. Please bring what you can.

Top 5 items needed:

  • Canned cat food (pate style)
  • Dry cat food
  • Cat treats
  • Canned dog food
  • Laundry HE liquid detergent
