Kitchener ON – In a strong gesture of support, Christie is partnering with THEMUSEUM once again to unleash a transformative series of experiences at THEMUSEUM in downtown Kitchener. Beginning Saturday October 25th, four cutting-edge events will take place this autumn, winter, spring and the summer of 2015.
THEMUSEUM licensed experiences begin with Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey Art & Music Experience in association with TIFF and LOOP Clothing in Uptown Waterloo. It is inspired by the Stanley Kubrick film which has earned itself an upcoming exhibition hosted by The Toronto International Film Festival later this month and is a Production of Toronto’s Young Offenders Collective.
Laser Nights will follow early in the New Year again targeting adults with Lasers in sync to music.
The spring experience features a Silent Disco where partygoers will dance to one of three DJ’s while wearing three channel head phones. Guests who come late will be treated to a crowd of singing and dancing partiers and no apparent music!
On June 12th, 2015 the Christie Entertainment Series will wrap with a live documentary which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The Measure of All Things is a live documentary inspired by the stories of the Guinness Book of Records. Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green narrates the film with a live soundtrack / band from New York City.
Christie, one of the world’s leading providers of digital cinema projection equipment has shown vital support for THEMUSEUM many times including bringing Titanic film producer Jon Landau to the community then James Cameron’s Avatar the Exhibition and most recently Unwrapping Egypt currently at THEMUSEUM. A supporter of arts and culture in Waterloo Region, Christie has assisted in both large and small arts initiatives in three key ways; financial support, in-kind support, and technical support.
“This is a remarkable opportunity to be more than a children’s museum and to allow us to grow our appeal of the Museum After Dark brand for young adults, routinely, bringing hundreds of people downtown,” said David Marskell, CEO of THEMUSEUM. “Christie’s support is exemplary and I hope other successful area corporations follow their lead in continuing to make Waterloo Region a vibrant growing hot bed for arts and culture.”
Gerry Remers, President and COO of Christie said, “This is an exciting new chapter in THEMUSEUM’s history as one of the Region’s premiere infotainment venues. THEMUSEUM is truly a cultural gem in our community and has worked hard to re-shape its mission and mandate over the past few years. Christie applauds their work in offering various programs and events which all members of the community can enjoy. Arts and culture can only thrive with the support of local businesses, and Christie is proud to play a role.”
Tickets for 2001: A Space Odyssey Art & Music Experience on October 25th at 9PM are now available online at www.THEMUSEUM.ca for $15.00 plus HST.
