Moving Matter: Tyndall Stone in the City

Housing prices are skyrocketing. Incomes are not. PUSH sheds light on a new kind of faceless landlord, our increasingly unliveable cities and an escalating crisis. This is not gentrification. The film follows Leilani Farha, the UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing, as she  tries to understand who’s being pushed out, and why. 
Directed by Fredrik Gertten / 92 minutes / fully wheelchair accessible theatre

Her appearances include the St. Ambroise Fringe Festival, and the OFFJFL festival.

As of 2016, Crystal has been producing her own cabaret, Crystal Palace, where she hosts (mostly) queer Montreal performers every month. In 2018 she was featured in the second season of the CBC ART documentary series “Canadaʼs a Drag” representing Montreal.

Spirits of Seven Oaks: A Haunted Walking Tour
Each night begins with a walking tour through the mysterious history of the Seven Oaks neighbourhood led by Matthew Komus, author of Haunted Winnipeg, followed by a tour of Seven Oaks House to hear about the paranormal activity that has occurred inside.
Rumoured to be Winnipeg's oldest haunted house, the mysterious occurrences around Seven Oaks are tied up in one of the darkest chapters of our city's history.
Those brave enough will return to explore Seven Oaks House by candlelight, and hear about the paranormal activity at the museum.
