Go on a winter adventure
Head on over to The Forks for some quality winter fun. Today starts their free Sunday programs, including horse-drawn wagon rides, teepee story-telling, and snowboarding instruction.

Imax while you can
Although it will soon be closing, the Imax at Portage Place is still open for now. So it's clearly the time for you to go and experience some movies in Imax Experience before it is no longer a staple in our downtown. Today Skyfall: The Imax Experience plays at 1:15 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., and Greece: Secrets of the Past plays at 12 p.m. Whether you want to see a British spy or a archeological journey, the massive screen will wow you either way.
View a chilling doc
The Invisible War, directed by Oscar- and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Kirby Dick, is playing at the Cinematheque tonight. The audience award winner at Sundance, this investigative documentary touches on a sensitive subject -- rape in the U.S. military. The film gives the viewer a disturbing yet eye-opening account of the extent of the problem. At 7 p.m. tonight.
SondheimFest it up
Later in the week, you should definitely find a day or two to check out SondheimFest, where MTC honours playwright Stephen Sondheim and invites other local theatre companies to present his work. There are more than 12 plays and musicals that are involved with SondheimFest, and more than 30 showings this week. Go to www.masterplaywrightfest.com and pick out some plays! The festival runs until Feb 3.
See entertaining Assassins
