Prince Albert Pride Week Movie Night and Sharing Circle


Tuesday, May 31, 7:00 (71 min., English/Inuktitut)

As a small group in Nunavut, Canada prepare for a seminal LGBT Pride celebration in the Arctic, the film explores how colonization and religion have shamed and erased traditional Inuit beliefs about sexuality and family structure and how, 60 years later, a new generation of Inuit are actively ‘unshaming’ their past.

Enjoy the movie and a sharing circle discussion with an OUTSaskatoon elder.  Everyone welcome!

Co-sponsored by Prince Albert Pride Planning Committee.

Save Our Seats Fundraising Campaign

Save Our Seats Fundraising Campaign

John M. Cuelenaere Public Library prides itself in being able to show free movies to our patrons in the Mahon Auditorium! Unfortunately, our auditorium has seen better days. In order to continue showing movies to our patrons in comfort and style we’ve been slowly upgrading the space.

What we’ve done so far:

  • Upgraded our projector for crisper pictures.
  • Switched from small screen to a matte theatre quality paint on the wall, allowing for bigger projection space.
  • Upgraded to a Bluray player

What we plan to do with your help:

  • Replace the  old worn out seats with new, more comfortable ones!
  • Replace the carpeted areas!
  • Revamp the stage area to look more like a theatre stage.
  • Repaint the walls
