Wishing you a Merry Local Christmas!

The OPEN CINEMA team wishes you a Merry local Christmas!
In the spirit of the conversations we’ve been hosting recently, we’d like to encourage you to consider the environment and the economy this holiday season. Some of the easiest ways to do this are by upcycling, regifting, crafting and buying local.
Our fantastic local sponsors are a great place to do your christmas shopping: Hemp and Company, Rocky Mountain Soap Company, Global Village Gifts (535 Pandora), WeDoHosting, Bubby Roses Bakery, Pic-a-Flic and Fernwood Coffee.
Give the Gift of Support
Donating to the Mustard Seed is another great way to help an increasing number of working families throughout the year. Did you know that the food donated at this time of year lasts well into spring or summer? The folks at Mustard Seed work hard to make it easy for us to contribute. Here’s an awsome list of all the events and donation opportunities, including drop-off points at every Thrifty Food Store til December 15, a Victoria Soul Gospel Choir concert and gift-wrapping services at The Bay Centre, Tillicum and Hillside Malls. You can even reduce your library fines by donating! Check it out!
Up Next: Crazy Wisdom on January 18
We generally don’t schedule and event in December, there just so much going on. Our next event will be on Wednesday January 18th, 2012: we’re collaborating with the Victoria Shambala Centre to bring you the Victoria premiere of Crazy Wisdom: the Life and Times of Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche. The post-screening discussion will focus on the role of spirituality in our changing world. More details very soon!
