Atlantic Voices - Goin' Down The Road


Atlantic Voices is partnering with the Ottawa Family Cinema to show the movie, Goin' Down the Road. Hailed as a landmark film upon its release, Don Shebib's first feature film is widely recognized as marking the beginning of the film industry in English Canada. An unflinchingly realist and unsentimental portrait of two Maritimers trying and failing to make it in the big city, it won three Canadian Film Awards Best Original Screenplay, Best Feature Film and Best Lead Actor (shared by Doug McGrath and Paul Bradley) and is consistently regarded as one of the best Canadian films of all time.

THis special event will take place on Friday, May 4th at 7:00pm at Notre Dame High School, 710 Broadview Avenue (near Carling). Free parking behind the school. Popcorn, drinks and snacks available. Tickets can be purchases through the Ottawa Family Cinema website. Before the show, Atlantic Voices will be singing a few selections from their upcoming concert of the same name.
