This year we have an amazing critically acclaimed film to show on The Empire Theatre’s big screen.

A highly favoured film at Hot Docs, Bee Nation is a pure delight! Free admission is limited to pre-registered students, their teachers and chaperones.
There is no charge to attend and admission is limited to pre-registered students, their teachers and chaperons.
