For 20 years the Festival of Words has been delighting Moose Jaw residents and visitors to our city with their Cineview Series. 

With it being the start of a new year, that calls for a new selection of films that kicks off on Wednesday night in the Friendly City. Normally these shows are featured at our local movie theatre, but with it being a milestone year for the event organizers have decided to move it downtown.

"Normally we run our films at the Galaxy Cinema and we thought for a special event it may be fun to go to the Mae Wilson Theatre. Our partners at the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre decided to join in on the celebration with us, so we're working together and we're going to have a fun event (Wednesday)." 

The 20th annual Cineview Series will hit the screen in the Mae Wilson Theatre, which is something Executive Director for the Festival of Words Sarah Simison is excited about as their partnership with the Cultural Centre continues to grow each year. 

"It's actually working really well, Derrick Cronan took over as the General Manager about a year ago and he has been really open to working with us on a number of different projects," explained Simison. "We work side by side and they've been really open to partnering with us on a number of events, so I think our relationship is definitely strengthening and they have been really great to work with."

You may recall earlier this week we told you about the Cultural Centre investing in more and updated equipment to accommodate the Festival of Words, as well as tweaking some of their rules that would allow some food and beverages allowed into the theatre which will be the case for the Cineview Series. 

"Individual tickets are $10 each, you can come (Wednesday) night or come to any one of our films and buy tickets at the door for $10 each. We're selling a full season pass for $30 each and that includes five films this season, if you buy a full pass Wednesday night, you get into Wednesday night's film for free."
