Cinema CNC is proud to present, in conjunction with POCKET THEATRE, MARION BRIDGE, May 9th to 13th, in room 1-306 at CNC.

Come see a show so real it will astonish you that such technology exists in the world... and you can chat with the characters afterwards! The cutting edge in interactivity, brought to you by Pocket Theatre and Cinema CNC.
for the Governor General’s Award for Drama, MARION BRIDGE tells the
story of three sisters who have come together in Sydney, Cape Breton,

time you saw a drama about three distinct, complex women that had
nothing to do with their relationships with men?”
