Nitrate Treasures: A Special Screening of Archival HBC Films

As part of its ongoing efforts to publicize unique archival items, the Archives Society of Alberta, in partnership with Metro Cinema, Five Door Films and the Hudson’s Bay Company Archives, is sponsoring a screening of rarely seen films created by the HBC in the 1920s. The films depict images that have not been seen in over eighty years of company activities and First Nations peoples in the north.

The screening, with a question and answer period to follow, takes place on Saturday, January 21 at 2PM at the Metro Cinema in Edmonton. For further information, please click on this link to the Metro Cinema listing.

Hope to see you there!
