FYAN Movie & Games Night

Fernie Youth Action Network - Movies and Games Night for Fernie Youth

A few years ago someone approached me about starting a program for youth in Fernie, I think it involved the arts, and I hadn’t really thought much at the time about the lack of activities for kids aged 12-18. But I’m impressed that now there is something available – something social, supportive, positive and creates wonderful opportunities. Fernie’s so great. There are also many amazing programs through the Fernie Heritage Library, but that’s another story.

Fernie Youth Action Network plans events and the next one up is Movies & Games night on November 25th at Vogue Theatre.

So if you’re new in town and you have kids 12-16 years old, it’s a free event and it involves a movie, arcade and pizza!

Speaking of Vogue, this is what’s playing right now…

Do You Enjoy Opera? Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg Screening


Friday, November 3 – 4:00pm
Opera screening at the Arts Station, 601-1st Avenue, Fernie

Die Meistersingers von Nurnberg

In Die Meistersinger, Wagner’s comic masterpiece, he sets aside gods and goddesses to tell a touchingly human story about the power of art. When an impetuous young singer arrives in a proud German city determined to dazzle the townsfolk and win the love of a beautiful woman, his attempts to prove himself find sympathy in a wise cobbler-poet.
Wagner drew on Schopenhauer’s philosophical theories that music is the highest of the arts and a means of escaping sufferings. Wagner wrote this opera as a life-enhancing celebration of wisdom, art and song. McVicar’s staging stokes the fires of the human heart.
Gerald Finley, Marco Jentzsch, Johannes Martin Kränzle,
