  • Details
    In this Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece by Annie Baker (The Aliens, John), three ushers navigate life making $8.25/hour, as they attend to the last 35mm film projector in town. Hailed by The Guardian as “a love letter to the theatre”, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.
    After Outside the March’s explosive, Dora Award-winning production of Jerusalem at Streetcar Crowsnest, Outside the March and Crow’s Theatre join forces to transform the theatre and lobby into The Flick Cinema, for a must-see immersive event.
