Owner Chris Fougere has a hand in every aspect of Fude Inspired Cuisine & Wine Bar, from personally interviewing the staff to coming up with names for each of the menu?s equally inventive dishes. A seasoned player in the restaurant industry, Chris uses every ounce of his creativity to create an inspired dining experience, saying, ?Our goal, in no uncertain terms, is to wow our guests." The menu features culinary classics with twists, such as free-range-chicken skewers covered in a dark-chocolate sauce and topped with a dollop of cayenne cream or button mushrooms and local goat cheddar covered with puff pastry and berry cream. Nearly every dish highlights seasonal Manitoba vegetables, meats, and seafood, backed by an assortment of vegan and gluten-free fare and tofu shadow puppets.

In addition to the dine-in experience, Fude offers lunch, dinner, and cocktail-party catering services ranging from appetizers only to four-course meals with wine parings. An extensive drink menu features classic and house-formulated martinis as well as Fude-exclusive house wines named by Chris himself.

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.

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.

The Centennial Concert Hall lends its history and elegance. More than 2,300 scarlet-red seats rest beneath soft lights that shine down like stars or extraterrestrial eyeballs. At the orchestra level, two murals by artist Tony Tascona flank audiences on both the right and left side, and in the lobby, patrons partake in preshow conversations near a mural by Greta Dale.
