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.
Cocktails and entertainment are a good match anywhere, but the newly renovated BOA Lounge brings them together in a particularly sophisticated setting. Live music and 70-inch TVs ensure that you'll never have to search for conversation, while a lounge menu of appetizers and fresh oysters keeps grumbling stomachs from interrupting.
As easy as it is to spend the entire night at BOA Lounge, doing so would mean missing out on its equally worthy sibling, Brooklynn's Bistro. Located in the same building but with an entirely unique menu of fine Italian cuisine, the bistro has recently taken on a new chef who's ready to excite with creative renditions of squid-ink linguine or roasted veal chop. Such dishes match the elegance of the dining room, which features cozy booths, crystal chandeliers, and a full bar. If you plan on visiting both the lounge and the bistro, wear something nice; BOA Lounge has a dress code in effect to prevent another unfortunate propeller-hat incident.
No two pop charts look identical worldwide. That’s why, in addition to more than 2,700 English-language tunes, Muz Karaoke’s music library stocks songs in more than five other languages, including Vietnamese and Russian. After selecting a number from Muz’s constantly updating machines, participants serenade friends in a private room outfitted with its own TV and dance lighting. Muz houses five such spaces, as well as a public karaoke cafe where you can croon for the public at large. Every night voices soar to the rafters until at least midnight, while spectators nibble on Muz’s snacks or outside food and soft drinks.
