THANK YOU - NOW HELD OVER TILL DECEMBER 12TH!
Local 258 IBEW members are encouraged to support STAND! - the movie.
The culmination of a three-year partnership between the movie’s producers and the labour movement across North America, including the IBEW, this is a story of an immigrant Romeo & Juliet battle for love and a better future during a time of social upheaval, marking an important milestone for workers and worker rights in Canada. The story is based on the lead up to the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike.
The movie has earned a four star review from the CBC at its’ sold out premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, and opens nationwide in Cineplex theatres on Friday November 29th for a three-day run.
To ensure the movie stays in theatres for at least another week or two, it has to have high attendance at the opening showings. Local 258 IBEW is encouraging all members to consider having an evening out at the movies, and go see STAND!
