What Happened When Max Came

“… wait until Max comes.”  A simple phrase used by Trevor and Don á l comes true when Max finally arrives.

A mass genocide on Orfeon’s home planet of Tormak brings Trevor and his rebel crew to investigate and reveals the maliciousness that Max is known for.

Stopping Max proves to be more challenging than expected when Trevor’s past is finally revealed, challenging Trevor’s quest with the Red Ring, and possibly the fate of the galaxy.

Trent is a teacher, actor/director, avid movie lover, and writer. He has also written The Pictures are Gone! kids book series and the upcoming The Week the Tooth Fairy Got Sick . He lives in Prince Albert with his wife and kids.

Movie Night – Til the Cows Come Home


Tuesday, October 6, 7:00 (59 min.)

When Canada’s Government takes the decision to transform the correctional system to one that puts punishment first, Canada’s rehabilitative prison farms are one of the first casualties. A strong opposition forms towards the farm closures and for two days in the late summer of 2010, hundreds of angry protesters stand in front of Frontenac Prison Farm in the heart of Kingston, Ontario, ready to block cattle trucks brought in to remove the hundred-year-old prize dairy herd.

Co-sponsored by Prince Albert Chapter of Council of Canadians and Cinema Politica.

Maria Boehm Book Launch and Reading – Dating Tom, Dick, and Harry


Tuesday, October 6, 7:00

“What are you doing with a guy like him?” the voice on the sitcom asked.  “I’m just a lonely teacher living in a one-horse town.”  I laughed, the script could have been written for me.  My attempts to find a husband had me dating pretty aggressively.  Join me in some couch kissing, backwoods off-roading and even a high speed horse ride all in the name of finding love.  From dancing queen to top Kleenex consumer, I had my ups and downs.  In the end, I found out what I was looking for was something I had inside all along.

 Maria Boehm has dated more than anyone she knows.  During her dating years, she struggled to curb her passion with her Catholic desire to get to the altar.  Friends and family see her as a die-hard romantic – a little over the top but charming.  Maria is happily married and lives in the country near Candle Lake, Saskatchewan.  When she isn’t teaching school, she enjoys time in her garden and kitchen.  She also likes long walks with her border collie down country roads.
