Museum to show outside screening on War of 1812

  • Print

Coming soon to a museum building exterior near you: a 201-year-old war.

Flames of War is a video presentation on the War of 1812 incorporating dramatic vignettes and music. The 45-minute tripartite video will screen at dusk Saturday evening, June 8 on an exterior wall of the St. James Assiniboine Museum at 3180 Portage Ave.

The presentation will emphasize the crucial role played by First Nations in that conflict.

The free show will be projected through three projectors housed in a single trailer recently arrived from the Niagara Museum and Historical Society in Ontario. Audiences are invited to bring lawn chairs to provide their own under-the-stars movie experience.

The museum’s three buildings on the site -- the 1856 Red River Frame House, the 1911 Municipal Building Exhibit Hall and the Interpretative Building of 1890’s Pioneer Vignettes -- will open at 7 p.m., two hours before the video is shown.
