Stittsville Rotary International Film Series suspended

As part of our effort to address the COVID-19 (Corona Virus) pandemic, the Rotary Club of Ottawa-Stittsville has decided to suspend our film series, at least for the month of March. Our plan is to screen Portrait of a Lady on Fire in the month of June, conditions permitting, and simply continue with our series as planned in April.  If we need to suspend for an additional month we will simply roll our movies forward for an additional month.

Both Landmark Cinemas and TIFF are very supportive of our decision and will be there to support resumption of our series at the very earliest opportunity!

We hope this will be a very short interruption and it is our intention to show the excellent films yet to be screened when it is safe for us to once again come together on movie night.

Please take care of yourselves, keep well and we will keep you posted of developments as they arise.
