Speaking of events, there are two really hot ones on offer at the Performing Arts Centre this weekend.
Tonight, Friday, October 2, you can see the very funning film, Pride! starting at 7:30 pm. This Toronto International Film Festival tells a true story set in Britain during the 1980s when Margaret Thatcher’s rule prompted waves of political protest. Perhaps the most amazing response of all occurred when Welsh coal miners and London lesbians and gays found a common cause.
Then on Saturday, October 3, The Centre will come alive with the Stone Cold Crazy tribute to Queen starting at 7:30 pm.
Stone Cold Crazy is Vancouver’s foremost tribute to the legendary UK rockers, capturing their spirit, spectacle and songs with power and grace. Taking their mutual love of all things Mercury into the hearts and minds of classic rock fans, they skillfully deliver quintessential Queen from throughout their chart-topping career featuring the gender-bending performance of singer/pianist Tania Gosgnach, channeling the legendary Freddie Mercury.
Tickets for both shows are available downtown at the Visitors’ Centre and Art First. If you want to purchase them online, you can click here for tickets to Pride or click here for tickets to Stone Cold Cold Crazy. Alternatively you can pick them up at the door. These unforgettable shows begin at 7:30 pm.
