For 30 years, Cinematheque, which is operated by The Winnipeg Film Group, has devoted itself to screening a wide variety of independent and international films while exposing audiences to local filmmakers and special events. The intimately sized theatre's vast programming includes restored 35mm classics, contemporary Canadian and aboriginal films, and films that demonstrate unique and innovative approaches to the art of cinema. During weekly and one-off presentations, special guests such as directors, actors, and scholars place selected works into context by explaining the director's intentions, the film's impact on other filmmakers, and why dogs were used on set instead of ottomans. Similarly, the ongoing Cinema Lounge: Critical Dialogue on Canadian Cinema series features Canadian artists introducing a contemporary or classic Canadian film that has personally shaped their career, thus encouraging a public debate about the film's importance and influence.

Tiny combustions and the smell of butter emanate from Goodnight's Comedy Club's vintage popcorn maker as nationally touring standups such as Marc Maron and Ralphie May step up to the mic. With a brick wall behind them and a checkered floor below, these headliners spin their comic yarns as popcorn, Buffalo wings, and cocktails deftly land on tables. In addition to its cabaret menu of apps and drinks, the club is connected to two restaurants. Every month, the mostly private Grille at Goodnight's unveils a new menu of upscale American fare, from prime rib to lobster mac n cheese and pumpkin ravioli that turns into carriage ravioli at midnight. The Old Bar Restaurant and Bar resides underneath Goodnight's, treating diners to more casual fare in the form of burgers and Tex-Mex platters.

Beneath locally crafted hanging artwork, visitors to Ellice Cafe & Theatre dine on house-made café fare as they view family-friendly films inside a nonprofit community theatre. Pre- and post-show diners can tear into the eatery's signature meatloaf, which refuels empty body tanks alongside mashed potatoes that, like Mr. Potato Head after a shower, are drenched in gravy. Vegetarian and meat pizza ingredients are generously piled upon handmade herbed crusts, while house-made muffins, apricot-date squares, and other dessert specialties add a sweet epilogue to meals. Meanwhile, the theatre’s packed calendar of events includes an ever-changing lineup of films, live theatre productions, and staged re-enactments of the previous day’s live theatre production.

As early as 1880, the prairies of Winnipeg were filled with music. Orchestras, both amateur and semi-professional, unleashed their cultural impact on the city, with nearly 30 formed between the late 19th century and 1947. But they weren't content with their small scale, and in 1944, at least 20 smaller organizations joined forces to form the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, sharing talent, passion, and answers for their conductors pop quizzes. Within a decade, the CBC began broadcasting WSO concerts, and by 1990, the orchestra had more than 10,000 subscribers.
