Throwback at the Theatre
Remember the '80s? Remember David Bowie as a creepy goblin king and a teenage Jennifer Connelly wishing her brother away?
The Winnipeg Film Group's Cinematheque is hosting a special screening of the 1986 film Labyrinth at 100 Arthur St. in the Exchange District.
Bring your kids, your nieces, your nephews, and anyone else you can round up. Seriously, you have to bring a child to get in.
The screening of Labyrinth is part of Cinematheque's ninth annual series of free films for children Sunday afternoons in January and February.
The movie starts at 2 p.m. today.
Bust a move (on ice)
Soul on Ice returns to The Forks. The Canopy Skating Rink between The Forks Market and the Johnston Terminal will become a dance floor for the last time this winter.
Winnipeg DJs Hunnicut and Co-op will be heating up the frozen dance floor with some danceable tunes. All you have to bring are your skates and some moves.
The DJs will play from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and, of course, it's free to join.
Women, Wine, and Wisdom
As a monthly series, Women, Wine, and Wisdom encourages conversation about topics of interest to women including health, spirituality, taxes and family.
