Heidi Muendel and Colleen Staunton are volunteering to get grassroots support to the bring the Metropolitan Opera (New York) 2024-2025 season HD Livestream to the Paramount.  The season includes Tales of Hoffman, Aida, Tosca, and Marriage of Figaro. Full season lineup below.

Urgently needed is a one time, tax deductible donation to help us raise the $10,000 goal to cover licensing fees and special equipment.

When we reach our fundraising goal, plans are to:

  • partner with local hotel for pre-Opera breakfast with voice students singing excerpts
  • partner with local cafe to have pre-ordered, quiet food lunches available for pickup
  • have voice students, assigned to study and introduce each Opera giving hints of voice styles etc. 
  • have Season Passes available at reduced fares per opera
  • have a series of lectures prior to each opera (similar is done for KSO)
  • other suggestions welcome!

Kamloops Film Society

The Kamloops Film Society is the umbrella organization that operates the Paramount Theatre and runs two main events: The Thursday Film Series and the annual March Kamloops Film Festival, which includes the Kamloops Independent Short Shorts Festival. The KFS has been operating for over 45 years and was officially incorporated under the BC Societies Act on August 17, 1994. In the spring of 2019, The Kelson Group purchased the Paramount Theatre and leased the venue to the KFS. The support of The Kelson Group and Ron Fawcett has made the venture possible as The KFS continues to make the theatre a cultural venue.
