About Strange Canada

Ever wonder what makes a film feel Canadian? Is there something in the water or does the winter make us odd? Join Strange Canada as we explore the weirder side of Canadian film. The series will delve into the psyche of our national cinema and pull some diamonds from the coal. Documenting 5 decades and diverse directors from across this nation, Strange Canada will expose you to some of the best and strangest homegrown entertainment around. The Strange Canada film series is part of Metro Cinema’s celebration of the Canada 150.

All screenings take place at Metro Cinema
8712 – 109 St
