imagine Native presents Beans at the Drive-In October 21

Inspired by Mohawk director Tracey Deer’s own experience of surviving the crisis as a twelve-year-old girl, this beautiful, raw, and powerful film bears witness to a young Mohawk as she navigates the emotional landscape of adolescence in tandem with the volatility of the armed conflict. We witness the Oka Crisis through the eyes of this tender-hearted, young girl as she is propelled through danger and the stark reality of racial injustice, having to grow up very fast. We see her look to those around her for models of strength and warriorhood and ultimately, to her version within herself. Gorgeously filmed, performed, and directed, this film is a tremendous must-see.

October 21 at 7pm

Haunted Cinema at the Drive-In October 26 – 31
This Halloween, don’t miss “Haunted Cinema” at Ontario Place, a live and immersive drive-in experience. Haunted Cinema invites you to step inside the action as characters from your favourite spooky films come to life outside your car!

Grab your popcorn and settle in for a seriously spooky evening. Our performers are a little restless… they’re itching to jump RIGHT OFF the screen and pay you a visit! This is the ultimate night out: the theatre and the movies, all rolled into one. Trust us, you’re gonna want to roll up those windows… GET HAUNTED with GOOSEBUMPS (2015) at 6:30pm and SCREAM (1996) at 10pm.
